Something similar happened to me with my Skype interview, there was a confusion with time, and I didn't know I was meant to be having an interview until I got a text, so don't worry, there seems to be some problems with emails and stuff.

Chubunga- What was the answer to your question on whether you can wear bikinis in Dubai?? I never thought of asking that!!
business bay is nice its really central to like sheihk zayayed road one of the main roads in dubai and down town dubai there r a few hotels an restraunts an stuff right behind it, i lived in business bay just as it was up and coming half of it hadnt even been started yet. you can wear bikini's in dubai u only really need to cover up wen its ramadan which is august some time. are u gona accept? or u still thinking it over?? when i spoke to the recruitment person she said it would be lower primary or nursery stage which i think is foundation stage??

Hi

I have been offered a position in a GEMS school in Abu Dhabi starting in September 6th as well.
I have not formally accepted the position yet as I just received the contract.
Im my contract it states that if i leave prior to my 2 year contract ending I will need to pay the school back for the cost of the visa, flight to Abu Dhabi and 6000AED. Does anyone else have this in their contract?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Dubai-newbie
Bikinis are fine to wear on the beach. I think the general idea is dress modestly as in not thigh high skirts or cleavage-boosting tops! I'm stocking up on linen trousers etc to wear during that last week of Ramadan when we'll have just arrived, and also cotton kaftan-style tops, cos they cover your arms to your elbows and usually have high necklines.
Hope that helps!x

Forgot to say...Yes everyone will be in the same boat so I wouldn't worry about not meeting other ppl your age etc. I'm pretty sure the majority of teachers at the school will be in their 20's, and 95% of them coming out to Dubai from England for the first time. I'm coming with my husband but I'm only 27 and apart from one other couple I've heard from, the rest are all fun-loving singletons!
