Yasoos, everyone!

I've been impressed by how friendly and helpful everyone is on this site, so I thought I'd ask for advice.

My husband and I currently live in the NY area and are seriously interested in relocating in Greece, possibly Crete. I am a certified high school English and social studies teacher; he is retired teacher, coach, and sea captain.

We were considering taking the Via Lingua course for TEFL in Hania to facilitate our teaching position job search.

Any advice in general? My Greek is VERY limited (Kalimera, kalispera, kali nixchta, parakalo, efharisto, ana, vio, trie, etc. -- and, of course, food). But I do speak German as well as some French and Italian.

Thanks in advance for your advice and friendship!

Hi Carol,
Sorry I can't help you with your question, really just wanted to say welcome to Yannis's site and I'm sure there are a few site members who can.
Good Luck
