Is it possible to get a teaching job in Australia? I've been teaching English/ESL around Asia. How easy is it to get a job teaching English literature there? If not, how about a foreign language? I taught Spanish in a US school.

Hi DJC, I've found this site to be great for general living questions and conversation. If you don't get any responses here, you might try looking on Dave's ESL Cafe ( or the jobs forum of the Living and Working in Australia Forum ( Cheers

Hi, I have been living in Canada for almost 2 years (2 years in mid-Dec) and am about to renew my 2nd Visa. I need to get travel insurance for when I cross the border in order for the Canadian government to re-issue my Visa. My problem is, not many travel insurance providers will give insurance for Australian permanent residents beginning their travel journey from outside their country of origin. World nomads is one of the few I can find. HOWEVER, they won't cover Australian citizens who have lived at the same address overseas for more than 2 years. This means, as of Dec, I won't be covered under travel insurance. I am hoping to travel across Canada and to south america in May so it is paramount of public Alberta Health care can't cover this. I do not have permanent residency in Canada either. Can someone please suggest travel or private health care options for people with my circumstance?? Thank you!!!

Did you find anything? I've only had experience with WorldNomads, which was great, but unfortunately doesn't work for your circumstances. Have you seen this?

My boyfriend (who is Australian) and I are just about to start the visa application for a de facto spouse visa. We were thinking of doing this process ourselves or possibly employing an Migration Agency to do it but their costs seem very high and there are many to choose from. Can anyone give me some advice on this? Thanks

Vicky! Thanks so much for this link I am pretty familiar with the visa appilication but am exhausting all possibilities in research. From that link and the form I needed I ran into this: Attach a cover letter to the application form with • your name; • current address; • reasons for applications; and • list of documents attached to application. If you are waiting for any information to be included with the application say that it will be provided to the Department as soon as it is received. Also offer to provide any further information required by the Department of Immigration. That was so helpful! I reckon there may be more. Reading it now.

I am a language teacher who has recently arrived from Australia with my 12 year son. We are looking to house sit/car sit in San Jose while we both study. We are available from now until mid December. We are clean, tidy and responsible and love to garden. If you need a pet sitter, we would be keen to walk your dogs and keep them healthy and happy.

I have my cat in the Sydney, Eastern Creek quarantine. I had to send her there since they closed Byford in Perth last November.

Please let me know on Thank you!
