Teaching in Georgia (Former Soviet republic)

Postby zboy1 » Sat Aug 18, 2012 5:13 pm

Can anyone tell me about Georgia--namely how the women are, the culture, the people, cost of living, etc., because there's a possibility that I may end up teaching in Georgia for a couple of months. I'm getting interviewed soon, and I'm excited at the chance to teach over there. I'm kinda divided between this job and waiting a couple of months to apply for EPIK (English Program in Korea). I know Korea is a better option, but at this point, I would like to start getting some experience before I head to Asia. I've already applied to many jobs in Asia, but I feel like I'm being turned down and/or being discriminated against in that part of the world.

Anyway, any experiences and descriptions of the country would be very much appreciated!

I think you'll have to go and tell us as I don't know anyone whose been there. The closest I've been is the Georgian Restaurant in Moscow's Arbat Street - it's a monument!

White, Christian, world-class hospitality, love to sing and dance, tell lies sometimes. You'll have fun no doubt. Economy is booming there I think. NWO companies are investing heavily.

Worked there for several years. The hospitality is a facade to curry favor and create a sense of obligation. Men will want to invite you to a supra (or eating and drinking fest) and will expect you to be wedded to them and that clan afterwards.

Women are pretty, but off limits due to the strict Orthodox religion. Most westerners resort to the Armenian, Azeri, or mixed Russian/Georgian women who live there. Virginity before marriage is still a virtue and will be enforced by the men in the girl's family.

Smaller towns outside of Tbilisi or Batumi are crime traps and full of poverty.

I would recommend Armenia or Azerbaijan before Georgia. Only the food and wine there make it worth the trouble.

Georgia is similar to Greece in culture. Or it is something like an Orthodox Christian Iran/ Turkey/ Arab country. Maybe like Sicily. Full of dark haired passionate horny men ( think Stalin as far as what they look like) who guard their women zealously. At a small pretext a dagger appears and ends up between your ribs.

Georgian men lust after Russian women and it is a place for women to go and find husbands.
But the culture, the food and the music are great. The architecture is spectacular.

You can absorb some culture through this

I'm actually applying for a job there as well, although I'm looking at it more as a springboard to other EE countries afterwards. From my understanding, it's best to have a good deal of money saved up beforehand, which is what I'm doing.

How are you going to get a job there? You need to be there or you will miss out. Their culture is based on "meeting people" and if you're not there, how can you go to an interview?
