  1. good afternoon Ken, I'm wondering if you, or anyone else perhaps knowing more too, have any more updates on the position of working online in Turkey, receiving payment from a foreign company (in this case Germany). I am now also in this position and it's not nice really knowing if one is working legally or not! Any information greatly appreciated. Jade
  2. hi Saeeda, there are lots of kindergardens in the Lara area and over in Konyaalti - not many in the city centre though. Best thing to do is to troopse around them all once you are here, if you are interested in teaching pre-school kids. If you're interested in primary school then you'd be looking at the ozel koleji - the private schools of which there are numerous here. I warn you though - teaching at these is exhausting - I taught at several of them for many years! Jade
  3. hi there Saeeda, if you are a TEFL/TESOL qualified teacher of English (or equivalent) then you can find work here either teaching at a private school, a language school or kindergarden. Look at a TEFL website to see how to get qualified within 4 weeks if you haven't got the qualification. There are intensive 4-week courses over in the UK and here in Turkey too. Good luck, Jade
  4. If you are looking for something to do in Antalya why not think about joining the International Sisters of Antalya? This is the info I got about them when I went to the Christmas Bazaar last Sunday: "The aim of our organization is to bring Turkish women and women from other countries together and to help them to get to know each other and each other's culture through several activities in which their familes can also participate..... Amongst the activities of the association there are social events which makes it possible for the members and their families to get to know each other and bazaarsof which income makes it possible for us to help others. This year's project is to help those who are suffering from cancer. Every woman who is over 18 and has a residence permit can apply for membership." Contact Gulsevin for more info: Tel: 0532 277 35 40 or [email protected]
  5. I definitely think you should choose Antalya. I lived in several places - like Istanbul, Cesme, Fethiye...before moving to Antalya in 1998. You will definitely not get bored in Antalya! There's always something going on.There are several expat-clubs here too which are fun to attend. Then there are the festivals - guitar festival, piano festival, film festival, beer festival etc as well as theatre, opera, ballet (if you're into that kind of thing). Kundu is on the outskirts of Antalya where all the tourist hotels are located. The beach is fantastic and never gets crowded. Apart from Kundu Antalya is not touristy at all - it's a wonderful city with rich history. The old quarter of the city is very interesting and you can go on boat trips from there too. Lara is the "in" place to live - lots of cafes, restaurants etc to suit every taste and budget. It's a prestigious district of Antalya. Then there is Konyaalti, again with a long beach - pebbly beach, as opposed to the sandy beach in Kundu, but gets very crowded during the summer months. Choose Antalya - you won't regret it! Jade
  6. I'm pretty sure you WON'T get anything cheaper on a private health scheme. I looked into this thoroughly before I joined the state health system here in Turkey last February.
  7. Thank you all for your help. I appreciate it. Jade
  8. hi there, yes, I agree with Hobbit here. Going to court is VERY FRUSTRATING - my court case has been running for years, it costs money and even more strong nerves. The judicial system here is extremely slow. Sometime only brute force helps to solve things here I'm afraid.
