Your written English is pretty good. If you can brush up on your spoken English, I'd suggest you look into a federal job, though you might be up in the Virginia area. Economics or accounting with a fluent foreign language is a good thing.

FL might be a difficult challenge for you. You shouldn't waste your potential with manual labor.

Hey, thanks a lot! Actually, my idea was to work some manual labor(I'm not afraid of driving too, some driving job will be nice), until i learn the language, because there is no better education than real life and communication, and then to look for some better jobs.. Government jobs sounds pretty cool, but they're only for US citizens..I have to live in USA for 5 years, before I become a citizen – at least, I will learn the language! I was thinking about the US Army too, because I've served here, but I'm too old for service..
BTW, every US city looks OK and better for me, I'm sure, that Virginia area is fine, and I'm even not sure, maybe in Florida will be too hot for me, but the places there looks like heaven..I don't know, as I said – every advice will be in help, thanks!

Hello again, after reading some posts, I have another question - Isn't Port Saint Lucie better decision than Stuart - with more jobs and cheaper rentals?

I'd try looking in the Destin area up in the Panhandle. There are a good number of summer general labor job spots filled by Eastern Europeans and Brazilians every year, and if you can impress an employer and save up some money in the summer tourism rush, you can make it work year-round here.

I think you should really consider SARASOTA.
It's a very nice safe town, with nice beaches and Tampa is not that far away so if you will feel the need to go to a bigger city you can always go there :P
