Hello. I am being recruited to teach English in Hong Kong’s public school system. Is there anyone out there who has relocated from America to teach in HK? How was the school system? Was it difficult to fit into theculture? (In other words, is dating an issue?) Where are the best/worst areas to live? Any other advice?

I am a single, middle-aged man who is tempted to roll the dice on this opportunity.

Dating is super easy. HK is fun.

I'm not entirely sure the specifics of the HK school system, but generally speaking, students will be a million times better than in the U.S. There really aren't good or bad places to live. I mean, there are. But, even 'bad areas' are still very safe in Pacific Asia. So, you can pretty much live anywhere, and not go wrong.

If anyone is interested, here is the website of the recruiter. It includes video from English-speaking teachers working in Hong Kong.
The pay is really low. Thus, I am having doubts that I'm actually going to do this, but I'm now very interested in vacationing in HK.

A lot of people go over there for a vacation, meet potential employers or connect with other expat teachers, and then go back home and apply again. eslcafe.com is a good place to connect with people if you're interested in doing it. I'm leaving for Guangzhou in a week to teach English Let me know if you have any questions.

Singapore doesn't need foreign teachers because all young Singaporeans speak English since 1 year old.
