Ok...

What be the low down on salaries and requirements, laddies?

Arr, know that there have been many rumours of needing five years' experience just to sail these seas...

But surely, while our gums bleed, they can't be expecting we be to dry out, waitin' for such poor tenures...

Arr, must a captain, freshly armed with a B.Ed, be assigned to quarters with underserved sailors?

Are my long black facial follicles looking in the wrong waters for trails of gold, sanctioned by the Queen or no?

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Is it speak like a pirate day???

I am not sure you're going to get a clear answer on the 5 year experience requirement. That's the letter of the law but I am certain not every teacher in Indonesia who has a work visa meets that requirement. I am pretty sure there are ways around that one, though it probably depends on which school you work for. I wouldn't let it stop you from applying.

I think you will need at least a Bachelor's Degree. Whether or not it needs to be an ''English'' degree is also going to vary from school to school I think. If you want to work in Indonesia, I say go for it. Send out your CV and see what happens.

Arrr matey! Aye, seems doable with at least a degree. I would even perhaps consider EF if they weren't so stingy and actually provided an apartment. Even a shoe box would do me. But to be thrown in with ESLers that you don't know from a bar of soap... What happens to your meager "valuable" electronics when someone has no money and decides to do the midnight phantom? Arrrr! I'll accept mutiny, but not the taking of bounty!

"Don't seek the treasure"... It's interesting, I'd say that Indonesia is the most controversial Asian country to teach in, according to those across the inter-webs.

By the way, it wasn't TLAPDay, I just felt like it. I think my rationale was to inject some lightheartedness into the Indonesia forums...

Arrr, indeed there be no lightheartedness here, matey ... a gloomy dungeon we do inhabit and a Motley Crue are we all ... but be hearty, for the rupiah plummets before our eyepatches, and all men, bad or good, must die ... so, be merry, my friend, be merry ...

The best advice I can give is to bring some dollars or pounds. Let's say that you can bring £2000 . Then that's over Rp 40.000.000 at the moment. You could get a nice place for a whole year for that. Most of the flat owners expect you to pay a year up front. If you try and save a year's accomodation costs while you are earning rupiah, you're doing it arse about face. Bring enough money to rent a nice flat for the year and then you'll find the salary will be more than enough to cover your daily expenses.

You can find some places that rent by the month but you'll pay a bit over the odds if you try that. Apart from that, find a job in the suburbs or one of the satellite cities like Tangerang or Depok. It's much cheaper for accomodation out there.
