The principal is very pleasant so I'm sure he won't mind you asking all these questions tomorrow in the interview...I had tons of questions about Dubai, even little things like how Western women are treated by the locals, and if I can wear a bikini on the beach! He was happy to answer everything

Are you having the interview here in England or are you already working out in Dubai?
I live in Scotland but I lived in Dubai for just over 2 years and I used to live in Business Bay so im curious to know which appartment buildings it will be.. I really liked living in Business Bay its very central. I never drove over there though which im scared about if i will need a car to get to and from work?

I just got back from holiday in Dubai, if i had emailed my cv sooner they would have interviewed me in Dubai which is a shame it is now skype. It's not the principal intervieing me its someone else, hate interviews always make me really nervous but would love to move back to Dubai If you have any questions about Dubai i would be happy to answer them if you want? what date are you moving? do you know how many teachers there are going to be there or how many classes they will have??

thanks
Miss P

Oh wow, so you must know Dubai really well then! It's a good sign if you want to go back there Especially if you just got back from a holiday there too!
We've never been so we're not entirely sure what to expect, but we're soooo looking forwards to it

Only question I have at the moment is about cars...if it's best to hire or buy a second hand one. But if you didn't drive there last time you lived there then not to worry - I guess these are the kinds of things we'll figure out once we get there!
Not sure how many teachers there will be, but it's obviously a brand new school so they'll have an entirely new cohort of teachers, so I'm guessing about 50 members of staff in total...?

Don't be nervous Whatever's meant to be will be, I'm sure you'll do fine

As a single girl would be business bay be a nice enough place to live?
Any advice welcome! Feel free to PM me!!
Hi Dubai-newbie!
I can't PM you until you've written 5 posts I think.
That's great you got offered the job, congrats! We are soooo excited Has the principal"s PA emailed you the info pack on accommodation yet? That gives loads of info about Business Bay...all the teachers are going to be given apartments in Bus. Bay - all in just 2 or 3 tower blocks, so we'll all be quite closely knit I would imagine. I'm going out with my husband but I know quite a few single people will be going out there to teach in the same school as us, and everyone seems very young - mid 20's mostly. I think you'll have a blast as a single girl!!
Hopefully see you there! (I'll be the only music teacher in the school so you'll soon figure out it's me!)
