Some teachers arrive in a new country to find that the actual job, accommodation, pay or contract they are given is not what they were promised. They may even be abused or exploited. Double-check your expectations with the employer, and get confirmation in writing. Some questions to ask them: “Where is the job? What is its level? What subject will I be teaching? What age are the students? What is the salary and will it change? What are the hours of work? Is any money going to be deducted from my salary and for what purposes? What work responsibilities will I have outside the classroom? Who is responsible for obtaining the visa and work permit? Where will I be living? Is it going to be close to my place of work?”
