Posted:Romanians beware! a little dragon is headed your way next year! (that kinda rhymes! and i didnt even mean for it to!)

a lovely (fat!) letter arrived in the post today "i am delighted to let you know that you have been recomended for a placement with GAP in Romania, teaching English as a Foreign Language"

i will get a phone interview within the next few months to determine my specific placement, and i will find out "from mid-september" where and when exactly i am going.

I'm so excited! reading the details on Romania; "Romania is a fascinating and beautiful country..." it was sinking in! i'm going to be in Europe next year!

Posted:i dont know about the english ability of my studnets, but i hear that Romanian youth have really good engligh. but i can be teaching 9-18 year olds so there will probably be a mix.
i cant speak a word or romanian, and by not a word i mean i dont even know "hello"!
ill live with a host family, but i wont find them out until i land in Romania!
i technically dont get paid, cos im technically a volunteer, but i will get some pocket money. but my board (and food i think) is paid for so the pocket money wont need to go towards that.

Posted:and yes it will be soon cos i got an email today saying that i am in the group that is proposed to leave in JANUARY!

i'm so stoked! i need to email them back tonight to tell them that it suits me (cos i REALLY want the january departure and not the september one cos the september one will screw up my plans).

there are only 13 with placements in Romania and only 5 got January departures! so i'm pretty lucky!

aaah! i'm so stoked!!! my best friend was here when i read the email and i just kept hugging her and squeeling! ubblol

sunny
(only it wont be sunny when i get there! it will be really cold! but it could be worse! it could be russia in january! ubblol)

Posted:The amazingness of international phone calls - I GOT A CALL TODAY FROM THE UK ABOUT NEXT YEAR!!!!!

I'm to stay in a rural town 2 hours north west of Bucharest! It's apparently the 'best' placement because it's "very romanian" and not as westernised like Bucharest is!

I leave on the 15th january!

SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted:WANTED:
A li'l dragon seeks places to stay and people to visit while in Europe!
Will be travelling from Bucharest to London from the end of June until whenever she gets there (the time it takes depends on YOU!)
I can't cook or clean or sew or any other of those things; but I can pull a beer and make an assortment of cocktails! ubblol By that stage I should also be able to teach English to whoever wants to learn (after spending 6 months paying my board through English lessons!) and give Japanese lessons if you're brave enough!

Oh! I forgot to mention...I'm also REALLY cute biggrin

I would if I could - I just a) don't have my license b) don't have the money cos everything is going towards next year! sorry sweetie hug

Vanize, that would be wonderful, thanks biggrin
Expect a PM from me some time when my folks start to get narky about who I'm actually staying with! ubblol

I just found out that I might be able to stay with someone in the UK who lives in a really really old and really really huge house! so big I would probably get my own bathroom! AND I'd be able to go rowing nearly every day! That'll be cool!!!
