Hi again Natan. Just sending you a quick invite to the North District Social Club. A social club in northern Hong Kong for English speakers. Click here for the tefl-chalkboard group, or here for the Facebook group (has over 240+ members)
Thanks very much for the suggestion. I did eventually work it out....whew!
I appreciate your help
All the best
Cool - well good luck with the job hunting and hope you don't fall foul of your airline's excess baggage policy with all those books!
Are you looking to work in China?
Do you want to work with Kindergarten children?
Do you want a good Salary?
Do you want weekends off and two ½ days?
If you do, please contact me today. Our kindergarten needs teachers for the new semester starting September. We also have vacancies in our training centers. We are based in GuangZhou, Dongguan, and Foshan all in Guangdong Province, China.
Our school is called CIEO (Canadian International Education Organization)
If you want more details then please get in touch, If you know someone who might be interested then please forward this to them.
If you can’t start September don’t worry, you can still apply as we need teachers throughout the year!
All the best,
Seems an age since the splendours of Birmingham. I'm ploughing through 8 specialist modules - not sure why so many have been allocated. Stuck on 'teaching large classes'. Passed all other modules, hope to complete by end Sept.
Working at a school in Worcester. Not sure what I will do once TEFL completed. I may try to get to Japan to teach. Keeping fingers crossed.
Best wishes, Dave
Thanks for the add - so you're heading to Hong Kong huh? Good stuff! How are all your preparations going - have you found a job yet?
Sai Kung is a nice area, I don't choose there because there's a price tag that's also attached to that area. I used to live in an old walled village in Sheung Shui, now I'm living more in a central area of Fanling, but still spend a lot of time around village areas. I think Sai Kung is a better option then Mongkok and Causeway Bay.
When you say you're learning spoken and written, which spoken dialect? Cantonese or Mandarin? It gets a little frustrating when learning spoken Cantonese then standard written Chinese. Spoken Mandarin and standard written Chinese go together much better, but Mandarin is pretty useless here. I just pick up Cantonese from people, can hold conversation but I don't really put any effort into characters. Learning will help you a little with your work-mates and certainly with getting around Hong Kong and southern China.
I'm also on a dependency visa, it's good, it means that you don't need to rush or you'll loose your visa. Where in Hong Kong will you be staying? I live in the Northern parts just as you head up into the mainland.
