Hi there, I have many questions about teaching in Asia for an August 2018 start. I am in the year after NQT (Biology specialism) and my partner is a Physics NQT. To start, is the recruitment season well underway across all of Asia, or just for some countries? As there are some places like Vietnam that I have seen nothing for yet, but Hong Kong/Singapore etc seem to have a lot more positions out there. Are there any countries where teachers cannot resume a reasonably similar way of life to the west? By that I mean any countries where internet access/standard utilities and quality of accommodation are a drastic change? How is the best way to make a strong first impression in such short 15-20 minute skype interviews?? As I found this very difficult despite being very prepared. Finally, when is the right time to bring up the teaching package? It is not the main reason I am seeking overseas work, but I do think it is best to be fully informed and ask... the question is when. Many thanks in advance!
