Hi, I am working at the moment in Moscow, but would like to move to (and work in) Yakutsk, but am having problems finding any language schools or jobs there. People have said it is difficult to find a teaching job there. Does anyone know schools, or have any ideas? It would be greatly appreciated.

My gut feeling is that you'll need to make a visit there in person. If you're already in Moscow that shouldn't be too terribly hard to arrange?

I would bet that some school or university somewhere would be able to hook you up with a place to stay and provide you with enough money to eat.

I think you can make it happen.

I think I know I guy from Yakutia, I'll see if he has any ideas.

I know it's a bit laughable to dredge up a decade-old thread, but anywho...

There's a job in Yakutsk in the Jobs section. I have been to Yakutsk a couple of times and, apart from the unbelievably frigid conditions (it's actually built on permafrost), think it would be pretty interesting to live there for a bit. Alas, I'm no longer in the game (so to speak), but I thought I would throw this out there for anyone who's interested; I look forward to the stories!

When I was teaching in Irkutsk I talked to a student from Yakutsk.
He said that around -52 C that power lines would snap. I don`t think that it usually got that cold in the winter.

People have to get up early to start their cars to leave the engines running. I forget for how long but it was a while.

I wonder how much opportunity there would be in teaching. I would assume people would just head for southern Siberia.

I think the lack of daylight in the winter would be tough.

Locals told me that school is called at -55. I was there in November and then March; the lows were (approx.) -20 and -30, respectively.

It would be interesting to live there for a while, but one would have to be pretty hearty Smile

Sure. In Irkutsk, kids would get a day off if the high temperature was less than -30C.

I heard that due to the hydroelectric power from dams that the temperatures were higher than in the past. 50 years ago or so, low temperatures could get as low as -40 in southern Siberia.

I think it is a dry cold and not as bad as Canada.
Mongolia`s winters are brutal with the wind.
