ESL TEACHING THREAD
I teach English at an Elementary School in South Korea. 23/m/Aus.
I mainly did it to live abroad instead of paying $1500 everytime I wanted to leave Australia for a holiday.
Live in Seoul.
20 mins from downtown in a nice little middle class suburb.
My apartment and return flight are free.
I get $2200 a month AUD (which is $1600 USD or 1,100 GBP)
Minus 250 of that for health insurance, pension, and daily cafeteria meals. I get pension back when i quit (90 a month for as long as i stay).
I live in a small 1 bedroom, 1 kitchen apartment that is tiny. On the plus side, Korea has heated floors, and my monthly bills (internet, cable TV, electricity, gas/water, maintenance) total to $70.
I can travel to any part of Korea with subway, Bus or speedrail within 4 hours.
The women are the most beautiful in the world.
The service is amazing. E.g Fold Delivery, like fried chicken, can be sent to my house at 4am on a monday, or at my work place desk (literally to my computer, in my office, on the third floor, in room 301), or to the middle of the grass in the park where i'm having a date by the river.
Subway is fast, clean and cheap.
I have a mountain behind my school, one of the biggest in Korea. I can hike up there and breath clean air.
My elementary students are cute, smart and disciplined. I let them fall asleep in class because they study so hard at after school classes until 9pm sometimes. They never disrespect me.
I can try answers any question regarding working abroad in ESL, especially in Korea.
Let me help you live in Korea
Dating/ Sex Stories Overseas Thread: Japan Edition

What's up /trv/, I am planning a trip to Japan at some point in the future. During this trip, my hope is to bang several so-called "KHawaii" Japanese girls with the intent of knocking them up with my superior American seed. Really plow that Pearl Harbour Poon-Tang, if you catch my drift. So, I want to hear your best sex/ dating stories from while you were overseas. It doesn't have to be about an explicit encounter if you don't want. Stories taking place in Japan are the theme of this thread, but you can stories from anywhere.
Pic unrelated; is a beloved Japanese mascot character.
Where should I live in France?

I want to teach English/find work in a bar or something in France. Which cities should I consider moving to? I'm currently in Paris, but I'm seriously thinking about moving elsewhere for a variety of reasons. One of which is that there's already too much English being spoken here. Things that are important to me: literature, cinema, walking/hiking, good food, mountainous/hilly geography, maybe close to the sea? Someplace cheaper would be better too. I'm an educated white EU citizen, in case that matters.

Travel advice please!
Just arrived at Mendoza, Argentina. I have a flight leaving from Lima, Peru on Saturday the 16th at 11pm. Not sure how to divide time between Mendoza at Cusco (haven't booked flights yet to Cusco and to Lima).
With LAN Airlines, I'm getting good prices from Mendoza->Lima only on Saturday the 9th (leaving 2.5 days in Mendoza, 5.5 days in Cusco) and Wednesday the 13th (leaving 6.5 days in Mendoza, 1.5 days in Cusco). I also checked flights leaving from Santiago too.
Any ideas? I'm interested in hiking, but also the culture that mendoza has (art, most of all), as well as the Incan history in Cusco. Not too interested in wine, though. Is Cusco trekking more interesting than Mendoza hiking (Parque Provincial Aconcagua)?
