Hi Symes

Would like to know what your problem is? Are you looking for a school in Greece? What is your nationality and where in Greece do you wanna go? I have some contacts but need more info on what you want. Idea

Thanks for your reply:

I am Canadian...so not and EU member...

I will have my Bachelor of Arts Degree (Honours) and my Bachelor of Education degree in May. I am currently completeing my practice teaching in Fredericton New Brunswick at the High School level (ages 13-1Cool.

I would really love to travel to Greece and teach but I can't seem to weave my past the Anglo Helenic recruiter and get in contact with any schools.

Thanks for you response to my despearate plea

Matt

it seems that if you post something on here and you plan to teach english you should check it for grammar. As you can see from my last post I have not!!

Anyway, please contact me and let me know about any schools that I may be qualified for...I understand the pay is not great but that is not what I am after anyway.

The very best,

Matt Symes

By the way if you want to put 18 don't put a bracket afterwards or you will end up with 1Cool

Sorry Matt

The contacts I have in Greece only take Brits unfortunately. It is quite difficult to get a job in Greece if you arent an EU member, I know that.

Canadians are very popular in Turkey and they have no probs with visas.

Also it is cheaper here and the money is in fact perhaps a little better than in Greece and you can go there as much as you want from here. Check out the Turk forum and ask some Canadians what they think. I have many US, Aussie, Canadian and Brit friends here.

Vre,

Thanks so much for checking!! My gf and I are very weary of travelling to Turkey given the current political climate though.

Cheers,

Matt

Hi Matt

Sorry mate I think you got it wrong there about this climate thing unless of course youre thinking about the weather . Oh yes sorry you're confused this is Turkey not Cyprus different place different everything ,the people are normal here you see . Looks like someone gave sound advice about Turkey follow it up you are NOT going to get any job worth a spit in Greece . Nuff said .

Most of them work illegally and do a border run by bus every 3 months.

I have family that lives in Athens where I can stay for free and have meals, is it possible to find some illegal work on the side just for spending money while I'm there?

Let me see - you want us to cooperate with you in a conspiracy to break the law of a EU member state ?

But that's unethical ! Tell you what - send me a small sweetener for say 1000 Euros and I'll tell you how to do it.
