This is hard to say, how long is a piece of string. Youre asking to compare and quote for entire countries. BKK vs. Chiang Mai,etc. There is a lot of range across a country. 2/3LDKs are available. KL and Seoul are going to be more pricey across comparable properties than BKK or Taipei. Most ISs will...

Nothing. Not going to do any PD, not going to tinker with lessons or do any planning, not going to learn a language, not going to restore anything. Nothing. Now that intra-city/prefecture travel is opened again I might head to Kyoto and Gifu see some old friends and haunts from back in the day, mayb...

@Heliotrope Yes FB is less reliable, in so much as you dont understand what reliability is as this forum has a much smaller user base and variation in opinions. Validity or accuracy would be more relevant, and yes this forum is more valid and accurate than FB, because everything is more valid and ac...

@Heliotrope We disagree. You wrote it. FB is not a source to consult with in regard to medical matters that could be life and death. I would not recommend solely relying on the recommendation of a local physician in the host area until after consulting with MY personal physician. I trust MY doctor, ...

You dont need to make the traditional test as the IRS provided a waiver as long as you were in the foreign country on 1 February (earlier for China). That waiver expires on 15 July however.

The gin and tonic is a thing, tonic water contains quinine which was an still is a malaria treatment, though usually the amount in commercially available tonic water is too small to be therapeutic. I disagree with @Heliotrope, listening to a FB group is not the way to go. You want to talk to your IS...

I wouldnt risk it. What medication to take depends more on you in my experience. Doxycycline is a daily dose, can be started days instead of weeks before travel, is inexpensive, readily available, few side effects, well tolerated, and offers some protection against other infections mainly ticks and ...

I dont really understand what your looking for, your inquiries are so broad. You read about iTeach and Teach Now, what do you want to know? The biggest difference like most of the skills based pathways differ in the field experience. They both provide an online learning component with a field experi...

@s0830887 Im not. @Smoko I disagree, I wouldnt take the exams cold to start. Take a couple of practice exam first, if you can get through two of each easy breezy, and your confident in your material than you can schedule the real thing before enrolling with TN. That will be in your favor, because TN...

Yet @s0830887 is agreeing with me. Bunk. Everything I have discussed about Teach Now is accurate. @s0830887 "lovely" experience with Teach Now is one experience, that is not the only experience. Andres Barnes is a sales person, that their job to make everything sound awesome. Their opinions are no m...

@Smokegreynblues In direct reply to your inquires: 1) No, FL does NOT have a provisional credential. They have one professional (professional grade) credential. FL has a temporary certificate, but its more a permit, you have to be sponsored to obtain it. While the requirements for the temporary cert...
