I'm an American English teacher who is currently living and working in Kiev, Ukraine. I will be traveling throughout Europe this summer, but afterwards, would quite possibly like to settle down in some Croatian city or town in late August/early September. In your opinion, which place (I would prefer a coastal town) might be best for me in terms of both teaching possibilities and city attractions, including nature?
My top priorities in finding a good city or town are:
1.) Good opportunities to teach English, ESPECIALLY WORKING FOR COMPANIES (including finding students for private classes) and ability to find them fairly quickly
2.) A place surrounded by beautiful nature (including beaches, forests, and perhaps nearby mountains)
3.) Good recreational opportunities, such as hiking, diving, snorkeling, and windsurfing
While I wouldn't be opposed to working for a school or private academy, I am particularly interested in working for a company (companies).
Please note that I am aware in general of the economic situation in Croatia, but would rather focus on positive possibilities. Feel free to send me a private message. Thanks in advance!
