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?

If I were you, I'd just use DuoLingo myself, and then teach the kid what the messen I learned on DuoLingo the day before.
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?

People told me it's hard to find jobs or that you'll have issues with the visa come up if you teach there without a degree.

It's good to hear you can land a job without one, as I'm also considering going there.

Do you plan to use a fake degree? Will your school get you a work visa with the fake degree? Or will you work on a tourist visa or whatever

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...

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...

Bump, just looking from some other towns in the Greater Mexico City area to visit for maybe 2 days while I'm there
Toluca is ugly as fuck m8 not sure why you would want to go there.

Nice places to visit that are within a 4 hour bus ride are Puebla, Querétaro and San Miguel de Allende.

Regarding safety: Mexico City is pretty safe, just don't go to the ugly parts of town and you'll be fine, it's actually safer than major US cities like Chicago or Atlanta

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

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,...

Of the ones in Canada, Concordia would be good as it's in Montreal so you'd be right in the middle of a great city. My coworkers daughter is studying there right now and really likes it.

Don't pick KPU, it's in a shitty suburb. Okanagan College is in a small town that's really nice in the summers but not so great rest of the year. I don't know much about the other ones.

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.

It'll get better. The bad people only do 50% of the harm; the rest is done by us westerners letting ourselves fall prey to fear and pessimism.
Yemen (Socotra), Mali, Crimea, Afghanistan/Pakistan

Tibet (sort of). It's definitely safe minus any political demonstration but it would be nice to travel there independently. Same with Iran but that feels like much less of an issue.

depends on the country

So I've always wanted to see the world. I was born in a bumfuck shithole is northern California and then I got dragged to a suburb in Utah after my parents divorced.

I know from personal experience that locals usually either tolerate or despise outsiders, but are there any areas where I would be openly welcomed?

I'm not asking to get my dick sucked, I just hate to feel like an inconvenience to people. I know to not be an ass in public, but sometimes people just don't like tourism gentrifying their homes.

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.

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.

None really. I like Texas but for the most part that isn't their culture. They'll tell you it's fun, but you won't enjoy it.

You may enjoy Memphis.
I was kinda worried to hear that. What about Nashville?

It's gonna be pretty horrible weather here in June, but Austin's got a lot of great food and live music everywhere.

I'd love to do something like this, but whenever I see the price tag for that kind of expedition, I realize I could spend the money on six months in Thailand instead.
Everything is a balance anon, and you can also for that money live a year in your mom's house playing video games.

I'm not going to lie and say Thailand isn't fun but how many people do you meet that can actually have claimed to been to these remote South Atlantic Islands?
Well if it's just about adding inches to your travelpenis, how many people are you going to meet that actually care?

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.
Where did you start (truck stops, on the highway, etc.)? Have you been in The Netherlands and Belgium?

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.

>travel cheap, nightlife, hot climate (tropical if possible), great beaches, easy sex, hot girls receptive to white tourists and most importantly beautiful nature

With all this characteristics, the once country that cames to my mind is Thailand.
What do you think?

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.
What about hungary? They don't use the euro and I used to spend about 15-20 usd a day (plus acomodations) to survive when I visited the country 4 years ago,
