Hi all, I have just been offered a job working in a language school in sirinyer and just wanted to ask a few questions. Is this a safe area? Is it expensive? I have been offered 3,000 TL per month and wondered if this was enough to live on comfortably in Izmir? Also is there a large ex-pat community there, what's the social life like? Any answers of suggestions are appreciated Thanks
Hi Everyone, This board looks like a great place to learn about Turkey, I'm so glad I came across it. I have a few questions about Teaching English in Turkey and was hoping someone here might have been in a similar situation, or know the ins and outs of the Turkish system. A little about myself: I am a Canadian. I have a BA in English Lit and History. I have a TESOL certificate. I have 4 years teaching experience. (1 year teaching K-12 in South Korea, and 3 years in Germany teaching adults business and conversation English) I currently live and teach in Germany. First, work permits: How long does it normally take to get a work permit, who usually handles the processing of the permit (me or the employer), and can I apply for the permit outside of my home country (say at the Canadian Embassy or Consulate)?Second, compensation: What is the typical compensation package? Does the employer take care of accommodation, health insurance etc? And what is an average salary?
Hello everyone I would really appreciate your input. I was just wondering what your opinions are of teachers working illegally in Turkey. Would you report them to the authorities, and if so who do you report them to and what would happen ? Thanks.
My husband and I are planning to move to Turkey in the near future. I have a couple of job offers as an English teacher, so I'm not worried about myself, but my husband, who wants to because CELTA certified, does not have a university degree (he dropped out after two years and has been working full time in the finance sector for a decade now). Will it be impossible for him to find a job, even with a CELTA, without a university degree? What about non-teaching jobs? I've been told it's possible, but I haven't seen any concrete information.
