Hi everyone!

I'm a new member in this forum and currently working as DH here in Al Hofuf to gain some experience about Arab cultures and traditions in preparation for my plans to apply as Assistant Teacher or Teacher here in Saudi. I am a license pre-school teacher and I've been wondering if there are free trainings or seminars offered online to all Filipinos aspiring teachers here in Saudi. I really want to explore and enhance my knowledge whilst waiting for my contract as DH to end.

That's all and God bless everyone!

Hello everyone on!

My name is Pablo, and I've been living and working in Doha, Qatar, for the past 10 years. My journey here has been filled with incredible experiences, both professionally and personally, as I've navigated the ins and outs of expat life in this vibrant city.

I work in the Construction project, and my time in Doha has allowed me to grow and develop my skills in a dynamic international setting. Qatar has been a fantastic place to live, offering a unique blend of cultural traditions and modern living that I've come to love.

However, the winds of change are blowing, and I'm excited to announce that I'll soon be moving to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for a new opportunity. This move marks a significant step in my career and personal journey, and I'm both excited and curious about what lies ahead.

I'm looking forward to exploring Riyadh, learning about Saudi culture, and facing the challenges and opportunities that come with relocating to a new country. I'm eager to connect with fellow expats who have made a similar move or are currently living in Saudi Arabia. Any tips, advice, or insights about life in Riyadh would be greatly appreciated as I prepare for this next chapter.

Looking forward to engaging with this community and sharing our experiences!
