Hi fellow afficionados of Koycegiz. I promise you all my lips are sealed!! Let's hope it stays as it is forever. I have fallen in love with the place since my mum bought a house there a couple of years ago. She had hoped to move out with my stepdad, who very sadly died before house was finished. I have decided life is too short to live in England - feels like the next ice age is upon us already!! I am planning to move out to K. for the summer next year (if not longer), and look after mum's house and garden for her. Have single flight booked for 1st April!! I am desperately hoping to find some way of making a small living, either by teaching English (have degree and teaching qualification, and ten years' experience teaching in UK) or gardening/cleaning (on a discreet basis!) I would be really grateful if anyone has any information about finding these kind of jobs in the area. Have been trying to find names and addresses of schools in the area but am struggling.
Would be very grateful for any feedback...
Many thanks!

Hi again. Just to let you know I have had a big rethink and am going to save up enough for six months so I can just work on mum's garden and not worry about finding work. Hoping to find work teaching English for Sep 2010 whilst I am living there next summer. Think that will be easier! :smile:

Hi Jilly

Your degree will allow you to get a work visa teaching. You just need to find a place that will hire you in your area. Don't consider any other type of work as if your caught (very good chance) you will be escorted out of the country never to return. It's just not worth it. Good luck though.

Thanks for that Bob. Couldn't agree more, and realised it myself just after posted my first message (and regretted it big time!! lol) Still hoping to save up enough to live on for a few months and in the meantime try really hard to find a LEGIT teaching job. It MUST be easier to do that out there. Am getting nowhere on the internet finding language schools in the area...:( x

Biker Bob, I hate to disagree with you but the very great majority of English teachers (at the language courses) in Istanbul are working on the black. The schools will not apply for work permits for English teachers if they are part time and are even reluctant to do it for full-time employees. The reason is that they are very very hard to obtain and take ages. My lawyer applied twice for me but with no luck and I have 12 years experience in teaching English in other countries.
Don't get me wrong here; I'm not advocating that people break the law but I am merely putting you right as to the reality of teaching English as a foreign language in Turkey. I am also just talking about Istanbul and for all I know the schools in the resorts are a different kettle of fish.
