Up to now the best thing about my job is the schedule. I was lucky enough to take over from someone who'd stayed for a second year, which means I'm spared teaching on Saturdays and have just the one early morning start a week. As one plan does for two or three different lessons, I can also stroll into work around two and still have more than enough time to prepare for the following day. Lessons start at twenty to five and finish just before nine; most days I'm back home with a beer twenty minutes later.
It's not a bad job, teaching abroad. Even in this weather.
