Are you teaching?


Yeah it's good. Sometimes it frustrates me by I'm really glad I made the choice to move out here. I honestly recommend it I anyone who doesn't have a great job back at home. The wages/cost of living ratio is way better than most have in the UK I reckon (for foreigners) and it's cool to have learnt the language, which I could never have done out of a book. I work for an engineering company, liasing with their english-speaking clients. You ever lived abroad?

Thats right. I think I knew that actually... You changed your avatar so I didn't recognise you. 10 years is a decent length of time, good work!
