I have decided to leave the Russian forum, possibly the teaching forum altogether. I have returned to Britain and am looking for work as a technical writer. What I don't want to do is to start providing out of date information about Russia or teaching generally.

With regards to the current crisis: at the moment, the main problems are likely to be a tightening of visa regulations, probably in a tit-for-tat with US and/or UK as sanctions worsen, and as a result of the latter, possibly less jobs because of inconvenience to employers and also less students able to afford school fees.

Dear cole:

You'll be missed! You've been a voice of reason for quite some time; not one wasted post of your 1,827.

Please stick around in the General and Newbie worlds, at least - join the tradition of revered retirees from the profession who still have much to contribute.

Best,
spiral

Thanks for your kind words Spiral. When I get the time, I'll look in now and again. However, I do mean what I say in that I do not want to become a purveyor of out of date information. So I guess I'll be circumspect about what I say.

Your kind words, comments and suggestions have all been very welcome and appreciated. I can understand your point about not being to provide up-to-date info. any longer etc. because I am in a similar position to you, having last been in Russia in 2006.
Anyway do keep in touch-I think you also have my e-mail address-if not I will send it to you.
Good luck with whatever you do.
M.
