Hello everyone

I have been in Orenburg for 8 months and I never saw any topics on Orenburg, so I thought I would start one.

Email me if you have questions about my experiences teaching in Orenburg. I was with a large "McSchool", but now I teach independently and with another smaller school that I prefer much more.

Or just email me if you are planning on travelling to Orenburg.

Best wishes

Greg

Hi Greg, I have applied for a place with Language Link in Orenburg, although they have asked me if I would consider other areas as well. Do you know anything about them.

Also, what is a 'McSchool' ????

One of a chain of schools (e.g. Language Link, International House/BKC, English First). There are lots of threads about these but to summarise:
If you are new to teaching and/or new to Russia, then they are probably of use to you for a year as they will sort out accommodation, should provide some training and assistance. On the other hand, they are generally considered to be poor payers and in some case worse, so you would probably seek another option after your year with them. Check the other threads for more details.

Hi Lunes

Cole is right, I learned first hand from the McSchool in Orenburg how they treat employees, but he is also right that it's a way to get your foot in the door.

I am happily working independently in Orenburg now after meeting some wonderful people in Russia who want to learn English.

I may know about smaller schools looking for native speakers. If you're interested, just email me and we can talk.

Greg
