I got a job offer as an elementary teacher at an international school in Hong Kong. It pays $ 2500 monthly, but it DOESN'T include housing, insurance or return flight tickets home. In other words, I'd be working as if I had been hired as a "local hire teacher" rather than as a "foreign teacher".
The payment for foreign hire teachers is the same, but it DOES include housing, insurance and flight return tickets home once a year. Housing for both "local" and "foreign" teachers is on the school campus.
What do you think of this? My main concern is the cost of living in Hong Kong with this salary, and yes, I would need to fly home, at least, once a year. I live in South America, and return flight tickets cost $ 1800.
Thanks for your time and input,
