Just please promise us you won't teach the children such wonderful things as your written grammar. If I may correct you:


Hi, I am a 24 year-old female from Detroit, Michigan. I do not have teaching qualifications to teach english, but I am wondering if there is a way to teach english to children and adults in Singapore... Like programs and similar things? I am very interested. I'm also looking to see if I can do nanny work?

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Becky

Especially not teachers. Don't worry Becky, it's only a forum.

Becky, both sound like a stretch to me. I know people who teach english without a teaching certificate, but it is strictly part-time and the work hours are very unpredicible. Not enough to live on really.

Regarding a position as a nanny or au pair: it is so cheap to hire a domestic worker here, I have only heard of a few people who had European/American nannies. It would be different if you were moving with a family who is relocating to Singapore.

It would be better to find the job, then move. Any chance of doing that? What makes you interested in Singapore?

I have one of those keyboards.


Becky, don't worry too much about the nay-sayers here (me included), I guess we are just oldies who think it is strange for someone who wants to teach a language to make basic mistakes in simple sentences.
Possibly it's also because we are not native speakers.

In the end it's not that important - good luck, Becky!
