It is official with the school in Ukraine. Had a Skype conversation yesterday evening with the DOS, mapping out details like visa needs, dates to be there, and many other tedious things I have to do. I have to admit.. being American is also making this more challenging for me. I have to learn British English. The school wants me to teach the intermediate and higher general English classes, business English, and possibly put together some programs for HR/management English...and I have to know British English since all the testing is done with it, but they want me to also discuss and work with the comparisons also.
I'll be in Ukraine by Aug 25th. Which is good and bad. Was hoping for a bit longer of the summer with my boyfriend since I'm having to move away temporarily. It is surprisingly super expensive to travel between Serbia and Ukraine, making me more than likely spend my birthday in Sept alone, where my boyfriend was going to try and come up but the costs are outrageous. He said he'd still try, but I'll be saving money and if I have to will pay for the ticket. :) Don't want to be in a country for three weeks not knowing anyone really and have to spend my 25th alone.
But other than that.. looking forward to it though. Lots to educate myself on though concerning all the Cambridge tests, CEFR, and British English.
Off to work on modules then put my nose back in PDF books about Cambridge tests and CEFR.
