Nah, CC is Caribbean Cool, the person who posted just above me. We often disagree, but he's right on the money this time.Well CC what can say, except. But hey Thanks for your response.
One question. Are you currently teaching English online, yes or no? I'm guessing it's no. I get so sick of people who have no current experience of online teaching coming out with these BS "oh it's so easy, you can make good money" statements. Yes, it seems like I'm just being bad-tempered here, but I do suspect that the vast majority of those with actual recent experience feel at least somewhat the same way. Teaching English is a tough row to hoe, and most give up rather quickly.On a 2021 tread, https://baexpats.org/threads/remote-jobs-companies-need-asap.43631/
BAHibs commented: Although the market to teach English is completely saturated with teachers, I'm getting all the hours I need on a website called Engoo.com. It involves very simple conversation lessons with Japanese students, the pay of 10 USD an hour would usually be laughed at in the teaching English world, but working enough hours earning USD in combination with Western Union's CCL conversion rate, and I'm living pretty well in Argentina. I'm certified to teach English, but the site doesn't require it.
So, yes, you could definitely do a few classes a day and make some money to help support yourself. In addition, there are studio apartments for rent in the $300 to $400 a month range if you don't have to be in the best neighborhood and have a light unit with a balcony. Translation: a dark unit with a window view of a wall, not close to public transportation. The problem is most landlords want a 3 year contract with proof of local employment and some sort of collateral. So you may be only able to find temporary housing.
And in any case, you Macanudo have been posting here long enough to know that a statement from 2021 means nothing in Argentina of 2023. The whole world has changed in the last two years, and Argentina has gotten much, much worse.
