I have 2 jobs and I have a passport. So check and check. The problem I am having is monthly bills and other expenses, which I have just taken care of. I will have $3000 dollars saved up by the end of this year. I have about $1500 saved up right now and am working real hard. I want to teach English abroad as a foreign language, but the TEFL course is expensive. https://www.internationalteflacademy.co ... tefl-class
I am going save up about $17,000 in the next 2 years and five months so I have extra money while I am living abroad. I don't want to teach in Germany, but it is the closest country to Eastern Europe that does not require a bachelors degree to teach English. https://www.internationalteflacademy.co ... rseas-jobs I plan to enroll in January 2020 and finish in February 2020. After that, I am off to find my future GF/Wife (Zhena жена) in Ukraine or Russia.
I take it you have EU citizenship. Otherwise forget about teaching in Germany unless you have contacts. But your post takes me back. $1500? If I dropped that much down the back of the couch I don't know whether I'd bother to pick it up. I would want a bit more money to relocate.
I wonder how much this will change after Brexit. That's a large pool of Brits who will no longer have EU citizenship and an advantage in getting jobs in western Europe. Among native English speakers now only the Irish will have that advantage.
I actually don't think it will change much, but perhaps it will be good in that they will relax the rules for other native English speakers.
Ezinho....Zacb...just be aware that the women have a lack of interest look on their faces unless you go up into the premier strip clubs to get a whore. Don't ever bring them back to your abode. The policia are in bed (literally in some cases) with these women and vice-versa; they got each in each other's pockets and hearts so cuidate! (be careful!). However, you still can have fun.
It's time to expatriate to evade your fate; it's time to expatriate before the barn door permanently closes on "US" sheep.

Actually, there is a way for Americans to start teaching in Germany. However, there is a lot of bureaucracy involved.
1. Register at a local “Standesamt – Einwohnermeldeamt” or Registration Office within one week of arrival in Germany.
2. Get a job and an address (not a hotel, hostel etc.) Most English teachers in Germany either rent a room from a local German or share an apartment with other ESL teachers if they do not already know somebody living in Germany.

4. Once you receive your Letter of Intent, visit the “Ausländerbehörde” or Immigration Office in order to apply for your residency permit and work visa. This office may also be called the “Kreisverwaltungsreferat” (KRV). Bring the following documents:
•Proof of address/residency,
•Letter of Intent for employment,
•Proof of health insurance,
There will also likely be a fee of approximately 50 Euros.
5. Open a German bank account. You will need this when you apply for your tax number (below).
6. If you are working freelance (most ESL teachers in Germany are), you cannot begin working until you receive a tax number, which can take 2-6 weeks. File for your tax ID number at the “Finanzamter” or finance center.
Once you receive your tax number and all of the legal paperwork is taken care of, you can begin legally teaching English in Germany.

Due to the amount of work involved to teach in Germany, I may just go to Russia. https://www.internationalteflacademy.co ... rseas-jobs
