    Hey guys. I'm still waiting on my visa to come through. I'm on my 5th week now and still nothing. Apparently it's being processed but I don't know how true that is. Anyone else in the same boat?

    I arrived last Friday so been here exactly a week. Are you on your way yet?

    I'm teaching English in Dubai. Only half the group got Dubai though. The rest got spread around the country.

    Getting on well so far. Had induction all this week and training week next cox it's the first week back after spring break. Haven't been paid yet though you can get an advance payment if you want. Not teaching for another week.

    Be prepared to wait. I had to wait 14 weeks between the initial contract and the final contract. Wish I knew it would take that long at the beginning.

    What is it like to MOE school? Is it organised? What are class sizes like, are the schools well resources? What curriculum is followed?

    How do they decide which part of the UAE they will place you, is there any magic formula?

    I have an interview in June with MOE for maths. What's the maths test like? What type of questions do the ask? How long after the interview do you know you have the job? I'm assuming it's a 4 month wait by the sounds of it.

    Is anyone going out there with young children?

    Hi guys! Great info in this thread. I just got an email back from an agency about teaching for the MOE out in Northern Emirates.
    I'm pretty skeptical as they don't tell you the name of the school and/or where you'll be.
    However, the information about salary and description seem alright!

    I'm trying to keep my options open but for the time being... they mentioned 16,000 AED/month is the salary... can someone provide information on accommodation? Is it difficult to find? (I'll be traveling by myself), approximate price range? Language barrier? Other costs/fees?

    Also, what's the main difference for private vs. public school?
