It looks for now like I’m here for the Duration – til June at least.
The school I’m working at, in the West of Nha Trang ( see below, has extended my ‘part-time’ ( 15 hours teaching / week ) contract until then.
I’m happy about that – my schedule is 0830 to 1145 teaching, with a 15-minute break between 90-minute classes.
Which means I’m free of an afternoon to visit the beach up the road, or what have you.
The downside? – no financial support from the school for Visa / Work Permit / temporary residence card.
So that until I find a better solution I’m extending my Visa month-by-month.
On the upside, I got on a much firmer footing when the online teaching work I’ve been doing came home to roost. The $430 USD payout means that for now I’m not sailing so close to the wind.
I’m now grappling with currency conversion, and juggling cards ( from Thai bank accounts ), but I’m working through it.
So, so far so good. Barring scandals, I’ll be here in Nha Trang, VN, for the next 5 months.
