Smile General advice for new arrival in Kuala Lumpur

Dear All,

After 30 odd visits to Malaysia in the past 9 years, We have taken on a 'holiday home' with a view to moving here on a more permanent basis.

I have been an 'expat' for the past 35 years (Middle East), so am not unfamiliar
with what this entails. We love Malaysia and really want to stay here. As such, I am actively seeking either a free-lance or full time position in KL.

Professionally; I am an English language teacher, with 21 years teaching experience at tertialry level, specialising in IFP (International Foundation Programme) with academic studies. I also specialise in ESP (English for Specific Purposes) which covers; banking/finance, hospitality, trade, retail and airport staff.

I would love to find a suitable position in KL, so if any one out there knows of a reputable college/university that I may approach, please let me know! Also, if any readers have any advice on the best contacts/organisations that I may also approach, please feel free to contact me.

Best regards,

Avril Mitchell

Hi Avril and welcome to B.E.

It's my pleasant duty to welcome you to the forum and give you a point of contact should you need any help with the site in general. You can contact me here.

A list of all the moderators and helpers with their relevant countries including the Far East can be found here.

We have a Malaysia forum here. Have a read and a look round then post some questions there.

Thank you for popping into the welcome inn first.

Any problems, dont hesitate to PM me.

Enjoy B.E.

Alistair.
