About adminee

I founded Expat Exchange in 1997. The site has changed a lot since then, but our fundamental goal of using the internet to help expats help one another has remained the same. I continue to be amazed by the generosity and supportive nature of expats -- they truly go out of their way to help one another.

United Arab Emirates: Post a Report about Healthcare in the UAE and You Could Win a $25 amazon gift certificate:

If you have experience with the healthcare system in the UAE (and health insurance), we would love to hear from you. We're running a contest this week and the first 5 people to submit Healthcare Reports by Saturday will receive $25 amazon gift certificates. Submissions must have detailed answers (not a few words) and take approximately 10-15 to complete. We are really hoping to hear from expats in the UAE. To complete the report, go to: http://www.expatexchange.com/eetr/addtiptopic/7

Philippines: Financial Advice:

Hi, All. I think we've fixed the issue. AcePoolPlayer alerted us to the problem and that test post was after we (hopefully) fixed it. In the future, when anyone encounters an issue posting or any error messages, please don't hesitate to e-mail us at help@expatexchange.com. The sooner we hear about a problem, the better. Thanks, Ace, for letting us know about it.

Mexico: Thoughts and Prayers:

We would like to send our thoughts and prayers to the people impacted by yesterday's earthquake in central Mexico. We will post embassy messages and any other emergency information below. If you have other helpful information for those in the area, please feel free to post it below.

Portugal: Retirement Report Submitted Today:

Someone submitted a Retirement Report today about Portugal. He/she is eligible to receive a $25 gift certificate as he/she is one of the first 5 people to submit the report this week. However, he/she missed filling out the form field with his/her e-mail address. I really want to thank this person with the gift certificate. If you were the one who submitted the report, please, please e-mail me at betsy@expatexchange.com with the following information so I know it's you: where you are from, where you live in Portugal and one other thing about you that you wrote in the report. Your advice and feedback was wonderful -- and we would love to send you the gift certificate. Thanks!

Philippines: Safest Places to Live in the Philippines (2017):

Many people have been e-mailing us to ask about the safest (and best) places to retire in the Philippines. If you were to recommend cities and towns to a friend moving to the Philippines later this year or in 2018, where would you suggest? What are the best places that are not near regions where travel is not currently recommended. Thank you very much. If you would like to include information about the cities and towns, that would be greatly appreciated. If we get enough feedback, we'll pull it together into an article for our newsletter. Thanks, in advance, for your help!

Ecuador Welcome Forum: WTF:

Thank you for starting this thread, but I need more details in order to fix the issue. Please explain what is wrong with the thread in detail. The threads are working for me... so it's very difficult for us to fix when we have no idea what is actually going wrong. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

Colombia: Posts are disappearing!:

We have been making some technical changes to improve speed. My guess is that this is the cause. Can you give a few examples of the posts that disappeared? Are they from one member? We'll look into it!

Ecuador Welcome Forum: Site Speed... feedback needed:

We're testing various ways of improving the speed of our site. However, the page loading speeds vary by location -- and the speeds that I see up her in New Jersey are different than in Ecuador. If you could take a few minutes to let me know how the site is performing (simply form a speed perspective) this afternoon. I would greatly appreciate the feedback!!!!

Mexico: School or tutors for a child with dyslexia:

I have a feeling you'll be able to work it out - especially since you are going to be there for a set time period. I have a child with Dyslexia and know how important it is to have a great tutor with Orton Gillingham training. I just started to search google for "Mexico City Orton Gillingham". I found this document from the US State Dept: https://www.state.gov/documents/organization/176076.pdf It includes a section about schools in Mexico City and special education services. I tried to cut and paste that section, but it was formatted strangely. Here are some of the many schools mentioned in the above document: http://www.westhillinstitute.edu.mx/special_ed.html https://www.asf.edu.mx/learning/sas I would contact all of the schools in the area. Plus, if you can find a reading specialist with OG training / certificate to tutor privately, that may be all you need for your stay. Hope this helps! Betsy Burlingame Expat Exchange

Philippines: Culture Shock Report Submitted by Someone on the Furm:

We started a contest today and the first 5 people to submit qualified Culture Shock Reports receive $25 amazon gift certificates via e-mail. For details on the contest, read today's Foreign Exchange newsletter. An expat in the Philippines submitted a qualified report, but the form wasn't updated correctly to collect his/her e-mail address. If you were that person, e-mail me at betsy@expatexchange.com and describe a few things about yourself that you said in the report (i.e. what city/area you were reporting on, your gender and what you volunteered as when you first arrived in the Philippines). So sorry for the inconvenience - you'll get your gift certificate as soon as we hear from you! Betsy Burlingame Expat Exchange

Colombia: Pros and cons of columbia:

Couldn't agree more! Please stop being so hard on one another. As the parent of a dyslexic child, I'm sick and tired of reading so many posts about spelling mistakes. Who cares if someone misspells a word. Nobody is perfect. Would you like it if your Spanish-speaking neighbors and friends constantly gave you a hard time for your mispronunciations? Please offer a helpful response or don't say anything at all.
