Hi all. I've read what feels like a thousand sites debating this issue. I've been a secondary English teacher in the UK for four years, I am assistant subject leader and whole school literacy co-ordinator. I have a first class degree in English Language from a good university which included a module in ESL teaching, but isn't a TEFL or CELTA qualification. I'm looking to take a break from my hectic lifestyle and move to Vietnam with my boyfriend from October 2017 to June 2018. I don't wan...

I've noticed that things are rapidly changing in the Se Asian countries regarding teaching english. I have been scouring the boards, here and elsewhere in search of some solid answers but i have been unsuccessful. Hopefully a new question will open the doors to some new answers. I am 26, my gf is 23. The current state of our home country ( USA ) is in decline and it's becoming extremely difficult to make a comfortable living here. In addition, we would like to explore and travel the world. ...

Does anyone have any recommendations for ante natal classes or experiences that they can share. If possible I'd like to find classes run in English, so my wife doesn't have to worry about translating for me, although I figure that's a long shot. This will be our first baby, so I need all the help I can get! Any advice, suggestions or recommendations welcomed.

I'd like to get my motorbike down to Saigon from Danang. I was wondering whether i could put the motorbike on the train and then fly down myself and go pick it up? (I wanted to avoid a whole day's travel on the train). Does anyone have any experience doing this? or know anything more about it?

I am married to a Vietnamese woman and we have 2 children. I built a house in Vietnam as security for her and the children's future but as foreigners could not own land in Vietnam a few years ago it is all in her name. Of course she has never worked so I paid for everything 100%. I brought her to Australia 18 months ago, she got her residency and has now left me and taken the children. Can I stop her from selling the house and am I entitled to recover the money I spent on it?

Can anyone recommend a good interpreter with a STRONG command of English? or perhaps give some advice about how to go about finding one? I need someone to help interpret interviews and translate documents for a research project to do with gender issues in Vietnam.

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows anything about getting your medication sent to you by mail in Vietnam? I have a prescription for Vyvanse (some sortof amphetamine used to help with ADHD) and I definitely need to keep using it, though I didnt anticipate that it would be considered not so legal here. I just wonder whether there is a distinction between the use and sale of it? Any suggestions? Apologies for all grammar errors and run on sentences, its late and Im tired :) :) T...
