Hi all!

I am a 24 year old who will be moving to Dubai in September for a teaching post
I would really love to hear some advice on things that make the first month easier and experiences (both positive and negative) that you have experienced.

The school i will be working at is in Mirdiff.

I look forward to hearing things! Thanks in advance

The standard reply would be to read through the stickies first, lots of info in there then come back with specific questions in the main area.

Yup - things that make the most difference will be reading up on the Stickies and coming up with a specific list of questions regarding things YOu think you might like to do or consider.

Making life awkward will include not bothering to read what has already been asked and assuming others will do the research for you and that others wkow what you may like/dislike or know/do not know.

I dont know you at all so have no idea what would make you happy in the first month.

Top of the Main Forum.

The clue is that each thread starts with the word 'Sticky' ......
