Just watched the last video in Russia...

I am seriously considering doing a teaching english course as well if I can't get work in my field when I move abroad.

The great thing about teaching english is you can get jobs in pretty much any non-speaking country. This also allows you to move around until you find a country you like.

Great post. Learned a lot just looking at the videos.

Korea seems less Westernized, more foreign, and poorer than I thought.

Russia looks as expected.

Mexico looks nicer than I thought.

And the life of an English teacher looks demanding in terms of hours.

These videos remind me how lucky I am to be doing what I want, where I want. If not for poker, I would be doing the same thing - teaching English to prepubescent kids somewhere where the weather sucks, and most likely hating it.
