International Living Website
Here's something related not to the classroom, per se, but to the international teachers in general. One of my favorite websites to peruse when wanderlust sets in is Tales from a Small Planet . It's a free website with stories of global nomads' adventures, as well as detailed information provided by people living in various countries around the world. A great way to get a window into the nitty-gritty important questions about a country such as how long the flight is from US or Europe, what the schools are like, whether or not you can save money and pollution and security concerns. Of course, some people have an axe to grind with a country and may be venting their culture shock on the page, but I have found most entries to be helpful and interesting. Readers can add their own reports on a country by answering the questions provided.
