The utterings and mutterings of an ESL Teacher
Stuffed full of half-baked thoughts, all jotted down entirely at random but generally relating to teaching, this is my diary; David's Diary. I'm an ESL teacher currently living and working in the Milano province of northern Italy, not the prettiest part of Italy but the area where all the work is.
Let's be honest here; Milan and the surrounding countryside isn't the prettiest part of Italy, but it's where most of the work is to be found. Unfortunately, the average language school offers pitiful salaries on the back of promises of an abundance of work that simply never materializes, but the cost of living in Milan is insanely high. If you work for a language school you'll struggle to earn enough to rent a place of your own in Milan. My advice: live within commuting distance of Milan in a smaller town and get looking for private work as quickly as possible to top up your salary.
