Hello, I am currently working in Korea. I have six months left on a 12 month contract which I intend to finish. My current school has offered me another 12 month contract which would be quite lucrative. My dilemma is that I find Korea to be quite boring. I am considering a move to Cambodia. If I come at the end of this contract in March 2011 I will arrive with about $5000 U.S. If I were to stay another year in Korea I could increase that to $15,000. Would $5,000 be enough to get set up in PP? I have an MBA and a BBA, but no TEFL or CELTA.

If experienced native teachers in Cambodia could chime in it would be appreciated. Should I stay in Korea another year and build up my cash or make the move with $5000 in March 2011?

Thanks

MOD EDIT: No, it's not khmer 440, but it is this:

Provisions of the above locked Announcement have been invoked in this instance.



MOD EDIT 5000 $ is plenty. I found a room in PP for 13 a night, and I think I read of 8 a night, and you might even be able to find that elusive 30 a night with a family or bargains or something. You'd probably have a job in 2 weeks. If that's all you've got and there's no family support, I don't know what I'd recommend. Have enough set aside so you can get out of here in that case.

Easy question. Yes, $5,000 is more than enough to get started here. The only thing you need to decide is if you really want to spend another year of your only life saving up an extra $10,000 in a country that bores you to tears. If/when you decide to come on over to Cambodia PM me and I can help you out further.
