Hello,

I have just been offered a job in Singapore. 30 teaching hrs, $4,000 per month and they provide shared accommodation that looks ok. Any thoughts on this?

How many days a week? 5 days at 6 hours per day or 6 days at 5 hours per day. 6 hours a day will be very taxing and 6 days a week will leave little time for relaxation to do the things you want.

Shared accommodation: Who is the other person? Are they male or female? Do they smoke and you don't? Are they hopeless alcoholics? Will there be harmony in the camp? Who will come home at what times and make a noise to wake you up? How old is the other person? Who will do the cleaning of the accommodation? Is the accommodtion a HBD flat or a real apartment? Now put your other questions to these.

Finally, who is the prospective employer?

K.

I did not take this offer, as they expected the lecturers to share a bedroom and the contract was a little off in many ways.
