The last one got deleted, so I figured I'd make a new thread.
I'm in Asia and tutoring English privately to a very young Asian kid. The kid seems bored and doesn't seem to understand most of what I say. He can only remember some of the words I teach and doesn't retain the rest.
I'm wondering if anyone can recommend me some good websites to find lesson plans and other ESL resources, or free English games online?
>>1080192 I'm moving to Vietnam in June to teach english to kids. Has anyone here ever taught in Vietnam? How was it? I don't have a degree, only a tefl but I talked to a bunch of people on the Expats in Saigon group and they told me its super easy to find a good job in Saigon even without a degree. Anybody have any thoughts or opinions on this?
My GF and I are traveling to Europe for 15 days in July. Could anyone critique our itinerary? Am I allowing enough time to each city or too long? Any critique is welcome! We want to see all the typical sights, eat/drink everything, party at night.

I've never traveled abroad before (I'm American) and I'm thinking about traveling to Mexico City for two weeks in May. I'm mostly interested in visiting museums, historical sites, anything cultural, I'm not much of a drinker/party-er. Two weeks seems like a pretty decent time to get a feel for the city and visit some surrounding towns (interested in Toluca, Puebla, Taxco, maybe take a bus to Guanajuato if the timing is right). I want to do this on a pretty tight budget, I'm thinking $20 a night or less for lodging, and I'll mostly eat on the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1097096 Lots of hostels in Mexico City, you can find many for under $20 a night, even some for around $10 but never go for the cheapest options in town.
I suggest you spend about a week in Mexico City and then spend a week traveling to other towns close by. I went to San Miguel and Guanajuato but there are many others out there like Queretaro or Puebla. They're not really 1 day trip kind of places, you really need to spend at least a night in each one. The buses to Teotihuacan leave from the north bus terminal... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm in the first semester of University and I've started the process for an overseas exchange for next year, and I was wondering if I could get some help on what the different universities that my university offers as exchange schools would be good for, and what others would recommend.
From the US there is; Baylor University California Polytechnic State University California State University Monterey Bay Drexel University Kirkwood College (TAFE) Loyola Marymount University Northeastern University Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute San...

I live in the area RPI is in. It's a fantastic school, but for a foreigner, it might be a bit boring. There's fuck all to do here, however, there are several schools in the area, so a lot of kids go to parties and get drunk every day of the week, which is possible thanks to the massive student population. Since you mentioned TAFE, I'm assuming you're from Australia, in which case I would to like to point out that it gets very, very cold here, much colder than it gets in Europe. We're actually colder than Northern Sweden. It's also overcast constantly,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1096903 Yeah from Melbourne. I'm not really concerned with academics, just looking for a place with a great culture, hopefully go to a bunch of parties, pick up and get wasted etc etc, usual university fair. I'd prefer to steer towards a larger city just because I'm quite into music and would enjoy being able to go to gigs regularly and that's always easier when you're in a bigger city.
I was in Hawaii a year ago and I ran into some locals at a natural pool as they were chilling and having drinks. I was kinda buzzed and ended up joining them after one of them offered me a beer.
Then out of nowhere one of those meatheaded island shitheads thought I was looking at his girlfriend the wrong way, which I denied. Then he got mad and threatened me saying "You need to get the fuck outta here you fucking haole." (Haole is Hawaiian for foreigner).
I tried to be civil about it but then his bitch girlfriend wanted... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /travel/ >I am 19 years old >I am 5'3 and live in Connecticut >have a really shitty car and like 1,000 bucks plus 1,000 in computer and other crap
I have been family trips around america but never really lefted my home town, I have a really shitty part time job and still live with my mother I have been really depressed and have been really thinking about killing myself lately I think its maybe because I never lefted my shelter of my home town and my chronic addiction...

>>1096750 1) it would be pretty fucking retarded to kill yourself. If shit is really THAT bad then sell everything and start hitchhiking around, doing odd jobs, making friends on the road. Maybe buy a ticket to SEA and bum around there living with next to nothing for a while. What's the worst that could happen? You die? You were already going to kill yourself so mission accomplished.
2) I'd recommend you look into the Shikoku 88 pilgrimage. I did it a few years ago in the summer, brutal, but life changing. It's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What areas around Texas are fun? I'm flying from Norway to Houston in June, trying to decide where to go after and where to fly home from.
I'm considering a rough itinerary of Houston - New Orleans - Memphis - Atlanta, probably with two weeks after leaving Houston. I like going to small music venues, cycling/hiking and cooking, just to name some things.
>really obscure but still interesting spots you want to travel to thread
I'm making it my goal to go to the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands this year, about a thousand miles away from the Falkland Islands. Supposedly there are no indigenous peoples and only a handful of people actually live there year round.
Rugged as fuck, surrounded by glaciers and requiring a very skilled sailor to navigate in the treacherous waters of the southern ocean... once you reach there the local fauna aren't afraid of humans since they've... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's easy. At least before all this terrorist shit - I don't know if that changes things.
The only hard countries were Spain and Italy (which is weird because they're the friendliest ones). Easiest were Germany and France. But even countries like Sweden and Norway which everyone says is impossible weren't all that bad.
Dude Europe is easy mode for hitchhiking. Just stand anywhere a car can stop. Signs will be your friend. Don't be an idiot and stand on a motorway where nobody has time/room to stop. Try to look and act like a friendly normal dude.
I've hitchhiked all over Western and Eastern Europe last year and had very little trouble.
Me and 3 of my male friends looking for a budget travel destination. We are from Turkey and what we are looking for these;
"travel cheap, nightlife, hot climate (tropical if possible), great beaches, easy sex, hot girls receptive to white tourists and most importantly beautiful nature"
Our biggest expense will be the plane tickets so we are aiming to have a comfortable vacation as cheap as possible, be able to rent a house or stay in a hostel for a month, eat good street-traditional food, be able to party hard and just have fun.
The cheaper the better. We can spend 20$/day max I suppose.
Yea a friend of mine has recommended Thailand. My only concern is the expenses. Can we manage a comfortable 1 month trip in a Major city in Thailand with 20-25$/day?
We arent really into prostitution tho. Picking up girls is like a hobby for us. I mean, we love it. We love the thrill, we love the adventure of it. When paying for sex is very very common, do people really meet regular chicks or are most of em professionals?
Other than that, the food, the climate, the nature, the nightlife... They all appeal us to be honest.
I'll be going to Busan for about 5 days and I'd like to ask for any advice/experiences any of you might have regarding places, things to do, how to get around, etc... In case it's useful info: it'll be my first time in Korea and I don't know any Korean.
even if you don't like seafood or if you're vegetarian, please suspend that for busan. it's a great place for seafood. i'm not really into seafood, but the markets there are just amazing. probably one of te you can either have like a nice fresh soup at one of the stalls, or just go inside one of the market buildings, pick something at random, have it prepared for you...
some random foods listed here: http://www.korea.net/NewsFocus/Travel/view?articleId=133001 might worth to read up on korean food before you go. from marinated crabs to penis fish,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
