    i was considering this because:

    a.) i'd like to get out of the country and travel
    b.) i dont know what i wanna do with my life
    c.) people have been saying i do not need to know the native language

    i'd like to teach it in russia and i do know a tiny bit of russian (written and spoken). has anyone here taught abroad? can you help me??

    any help is appreciated. i know i can count on 12oz for help because you guys are awesome.

    Russia would be good but I've heard the majority of your coworkers are going to be in their 40s. Places like Japan and Taiwan are good because you'll be well paid and can travel around asia and oceana relatively cheap. Plus the girls are pretty.

    Homegirl is just jealous that she wasn't pretty enough to be sold into white slavery.

    You can go to Japan through the JET Program and teach there. It pays something like $40,000, and you don't need to know any Japanese. It's kinda like Russia, only Russia invaded Japan like little bitches during WW2.

    What kind of credentials are required? I need a college degree or can I just straight lie to them? I know they dont do any real checking..
  11. yo b... you would actually do semi decent in any major city in mexico. very little creds if any needed and u would have the ability to discover a whole new world...

    I know someone down in Mexico city with a lot of unused floorspace, who insists we visit him all the time..

    But arent the Federales lookin to bust and extort all the native english speakers? The last place I want to end up in is a mexican prison..

    Im also wanting to consider the pay. I know what the pay is like in Japan. Can I make Bank in Mexico City? I think the policia in mexico are way more tough then the ones in Japan..No talking back allowed..Streetside beatdowns/killings..ect
  13. nah u got it all twisted. most fuzz are out looking to make a buck. they are paid shitty soas long as u sport them a few bucks u can get away with murder... as long as your minding your biz you should be ok here. i wasnt really talkingabout mex city i was referring to guadalajara or monterrey. and if you plan on making "bank" mexico isnt where its going to happen... ull get by and live very well at best...

    who is out in mex city?
