    Is anyone else a mistreated English teacher?

    Hi Scob - no it isn't necessarily all so bad. You sound like your qualified, you have your head sscrewed on and you have the right attitude.

    Lets be positive people

    Ssr - call it racial discrimination if you want (the term's come to cover nationality and ethnicity, it's not just about skin colour). Semantics aside, calling Argnetines ruthless and dirty, etc. isn't going a bit far - it's out of order. And I don't have any sympathy with someone living here...

    Lets be positive people

    Mamminger - I'm not sorry your experience here has been negative. I know it’s taboo to ask on this forum but why the hell are you staying in a city where you hate most of the people? Is it there problem is or is it yours? Did someone force you to come here and what’s forcing you to stay? I’m...

    Rusty English Lecturer / ESL Teacher from Perth who is thinking BA would be good :-)

    Stop – do not come here. You WILL become the victim of multiple crimes. Furthermore if you are female, blond, Swedish (and able to wind up gullible male forum members), you will be lynched in the street. Sorry, I hadn’t seen a post like that on this thread so I thought it best to keep the...

    Barbaro Hair cut

    I can recommend a very cheap hair dresser in villa crespo who gave me a shaved head with a mullet. When I realised what he'd done and went back in, he even shaved the back of my neck for free.

    Jewish Life?

    Hi Moonwitch - I think he said he was interested in volunteering or in participating in Jewish activities. He didn't say he only wanted to mingle with Jews. I thought your comment was a bit nasty but maybe I'm misreading it. What's the problem?
