“no matter what offer is made to you whilst away, just ACCEPT it!”
In the beginning, never turn down an invitation from someone, even if it’s something you wouldn’t normally do.
My father always says: “when you’re living abroad, never turn down an invitation.” In fact, Dad says, expatriate life is socially freeing. Since you don’t fit in anywhere, you can go anywhere, with anyone.
The people who have the best time when teaching abroad are those who never turn down an invitation – be it waltzing with OAPs, planting trees, or riding tandem around ancient city walls. You’re there to experience a new culture, so embrace the serendipitous, the unexpected and the unusual!
