Re: Switzerland.

My only insight is based on a friend who worked at the top school (opinions differ I suppose) in Switzerland. They were a single teacher with no children and shared that even on a top/near top for the country package, the savings opportunities (in their experience) were very modest (and they were no...

Re: Anyone from Teach Now in Hong Kong

QTS is generally a UK thing. It is apparently their version of teacher certification (more or less). If you do a search on this board, there are many threads about the ins and out of obtaining it. In short (and probably not doing the discussions justice), if you have a "permanent" professional certi...

Re: I Need Advice From Fellow International Teachers!

Oh yes, I guess I shouldn't really be surprised that your ego (and the belief that your opinion carries more weight than anyone else's, including WHO, the CDC, etc.), would eclipse your tendency towards pseudo-/intellectual/scientific trappings.

My mistake for engaging. Carry on.

Re: US Expats - IRS form 2555...

We always used TurboTax and never had an issue. The software was generally up to date and asked detailed questions about our situation, gave us our options, etc. Might be worth a look to see what it has to say about your situation before going to an accountant. We are now with DoDEA, so don't qualif...

Re: Creating fake references

Yes, I would agree this sounds more like a wind up than a legitimate post asking for advice (not that there are not people like this or worse out there). If legit (or at least real) then it sounds like you are way past asking if something is a good idea before making and acting on a decision. You've...

Re: Feeling very stressed in my new city - Advice?

Not sure what kind of school you are at but what you describe is unacceptable. Even at our small, relatively Mickey Mouse school in Egypt, there was someone associated with the school to show you some available apts. and deal with the landlords. Sure, it was probably because they had some nefarious ...
