Hi Ladycaza

You seem to be jumping from one language school to another and at the end of the day its a bit of a lottery. Wherever you choose its gonna be a bit of a haul for you been a raw recruit and all that. I think its fair to say that Wall street is one of the more professional outfits, English Acadamy is considered to one of the best, they generally pick more experienced teachers. So as long as they (Wall street) are prepared to look after the legal aspects of your employment then it may not be too bad. Its a central location in the city and you should prepare to work yourself as many hours as you can, I would try and do something about your hourly rate if you can, expect to pay a monthly rent between 500 tl for a grotty small damp pit of a place to almost double that for something that resembles a bit more of what you are used to. Good luck, pm me if you need other info!

Hey sixthchild,

Lol yeah i guess it does seem like i'm jumping about but i keep getting email offers and i really want to go to the school that's the right fit for me. I have sent my CV to english academy but as i have no experience as yet they haven't gotten back to me Sad

Yeah i was worried about the state of the accommodation. I'm not a princess but i do have certain standards that i refuse to acquiesce on!

Do you live or have you lived in Izmir? I will definitely drop you a line and pick your brains Smile thanks for the offer!

Hi
Yeah I live here, in fact I'm what you may refer to as a long term resident. Feel free to pm when you have enough posts to your name.

Hi Sixthchild,

I didi try to pm you but perhaps you've not received it. I don't think i have enough posts to my name.

I have asked to see the contract for the school in the hope of siging however after 2 weeks training in erenkoy i'll have to find an apartment in izmir. I have no idea about neighbourhoods, how to apply ( as i'd like to have one set up before i head out there) or what is acceptable to s=ask for. ie. yes i 'll take it but i want a double bed put in etc etc. Any advice would be grand.

Thanks so much!
