AJ looking for some sun is an unknown quantity at this point
Question Location, location, location - Help please!

Good evening from the east coast of Scotland

I am looking for advice as I have too many options.

Briefly, my situation is this, I am now in a position to move anywhere (son grown and half way through Uni), single and ready for a move. Don't get me wrong, I love Scotland but I don't want to get to the end of my days never having tried living anywhere else. Plus I would love to become fluent in a second language.

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher with 6 years experience, currently working as Support for Learning. I know I could get a full time job in an international school but I do not want to work in a school full time. I have considered doing the CELTA, any advice on that? Prior to teaching I worked in Student Support, Community Education and I am a good at admin. I was also a chef once upon a time.

I have been learning Spanish for the past year but I still consider myself a beginner and this does not mean I would only consider Spain. I figure if I have managed the Spanish so far I can learn another language.

I will have a little bit of money to do for a wee bit so I could do some in-country language study first. Is this a good idea?

So, where should I go? I would prefer mainland Europe, the sunny bits! What are other people's experiences of making the move? Working in international schools? Being single, 40-something and in a foreign land?

P.S. Just to complete the stereotype of a single, middle-aged woman, I will be taking my two cats with me

Hi there and welcome to BE.

As your eyes seem set for somewhere in Europe, I suggest you hop on down to the assorted country forums , have a browse and then ask any questions about living and working in whichever country.

Link to the Europe List of Country Forums.

All the best and good luck.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
