Would you accept a financially lucrative job offer that required you to move to a non-English speaking country?

I want one! As long as my significant other gets a job in the same city/company.

@bboy792 Yep. I've found around here some Hispanics from Mexico (as if I know whether or not they have permission to be here) who own shops and such and are doing pretty well, same with some Russians etc. So, if you have the will, you can be successful anywhere in the UNIVERSE!.

I would because if u just put time into learning the language u could easily catch on and live a successful life if u are smart and good at what u do

@LibsH8USA Well, not quite "not interacting", but I'm not going to be pulling (often) at you for spooning the soup, that's what I intended by my last comment on this thread.

I've worked in two non-English speaking countries and they have both been amazing experiences. I'd honestly recommend it if you get the chance.

11/18/11 10:29 pm

FIAT: I understand and respect your decision. I am sorry to hear we won't be interacting on this app.

11/18/11 8:26 pm

Yes, if it was lucrative enough to visit home regularly

11/18/11 5:18 pm

I currently am one of those people. It is a great experience.

@LibsH8USA Well, if you wish to be the spoon, then whatever, I guess I'll just leave you alone (I haven't nor will ignore anyone though, which includes you).


11/18/11 9:18 am

FIAT: if we don't stir the pot, the soup will separate and become unpalatable. Trolling, as you kids call it, serves a purpose. We used to call it 'talking shit'. It's fun.

interesting how more democrats would leave the country if the money was right. sounds like all those evil corporations they rail against all the time.

@LibsH8USA, @Jessie74's latest comment is a little more of an example of a trolling comment, but remember that it's the spirit of the comment, not the letter of the comment that makes a comment qualify as trolling.


11/18/11 1:36 am

FIAT: is jabcock's comment an example of being a troll?

at my company being offered an expat assignment is a sign of promotability. it is looked upon as an opportunity to get a broad experience of the corp iChat is needed for leadership positions.

11/17/11 11:21 pm

Been there done that and it had nothing to do with money. What an experience! You find ways to communicate. First big challenge was grocery shopping; is this soap for dishes, clothes, bath? Fun! Opportunity to experience another culture. Priceless.

@jamesjelly you think Ohio is boring? Lol I drove through Pennsylvania and all I saw was trees and guardrails haha

@LibsH8USA Trolling is the act of being a troll. In other words saying blatant things that stir up other people and get them fighting (or could). It is not illegal, but should you want very few folks ignoring you, it's best to not be a troll (an example of one was the famed Vangaurde).


11/17/11 8:36 pm

Feel like some think if someone says yes means they hate the US. Love it here, not Rooted here though.

When I did store demos it was fun to try to communicate non english speaking customers. It would be a great learning experience.

Well, my only problem is that I've now fostered some prejudices towards certain states recently that I'm trying to get rid of…

@Jessie74 Wow, did you drive by a sewage plant?
I've driven through (as well as stayed) many times and would say that Ohio is actually a rather reasonable state. Of course North Carolina and Hawaii are still my favorites…

@LibsH8USA I don't know the numbers here, although I believe it has more diverse demographics… On a side note, why do you troll so much?


11/17/11 6:30 pm

everybody I know who has lived outside the USA and come back say they never want to live anywhere else

My daughter wants to work for Doctors Without Borders. I don't think the pay is good however. Like other nurses she's fed up with the users.

If I learned another language, then that would be great. Otherwise, no.. I'd like to be able to communicate. :X

@lovin- it wasn't third world like I thought (ha) but south Korea is VERY open to and in need of English teachers. I did it for awhile and it was AWESOME. <3

11/17/11 2:20 pm

lovinlife: cool, so you're going to teach in California! Awesome.

11/17/11 1:57 pm

Since I'm already planning on teaching English in third world countries, yes!!
