Language Learning and Quiet Destinations




It's been a quietish week over on ExpatFocus as both the editor and community manager have been away. The editor - that's me - got stuck in a house in the middle of nowhere in Scotland with limited wifi, and then on a train with no wifi at all. Which in 2015 feels a bit like being stuck without air.

But we'll be back in full force from next week, and in the meantime we did still manage to publish some posts for you. If you have any ideas for future articles you'd like to see on ExpatFocus, let me know on scar @ expatfocus.com    more ...

Sayings From Around The World And How To Find A Job As An Expat




It's all change here at Expat Focus: this week we've been trialling a new type of article for you. These ones are longer than before, coming in at about 2,000 words each, and should hopefully be more informative and relevant to more people.

We've got a new team of writers on board to help bring this content to you. Would you be interested in writing for us? Email scar @ expatfocus.com for more details.

So, what have we been writing about this week?    more ...

Culture Shock, Chilean Linguistics And Catatumbo Lightning




This post is coming to you from London, where we have probably the final couple of sunny days before autumn properly gets into full swing. This week was the equinox, which means we're technically in autumn already: season of woolly jumpers, mugs of hot chocolate and switching to the winter duvet.

What's your favourite thing about autumn?

Luckily for us at ExpatFocus, we can live vicariously in permanently sunny places through our articles. Jealous yet? But wait! You can too!    more ...

From German Folk Festivals To August In Tuscany




This week we've been posting even more articles than usual. Over the next few weeks we'll be making some changes to the site to make it a bit more user-friendly, so watch this space for updates and let us know what you think of the changes.

Our most popular tweet this week was one about some of the blogs you should look at if you're thinking of moving to Taiwan:

There's a similar article here for Hungary, if that's where you'll be moving.    more ...

This Week On ExpatFocus.com




This month we're publishing even more articles than usual (prompting earlier morning rises for yours truly, who queues them up daily), and we're starting to see more conversation about them, which is nice.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, those that people seem to enjoy the most are the beach-related ones: Caribbean life, moving to sunsoaked coasts, and so on. And really, who can blame them?

Whether you're looking for information about expat healthcare in the Dominican Republic or trying to find online resources that will help your move to Jamaica go more smoothly, we have something for you.    more ...

Last Week On ExpatFocus.com




It's been a busy few days for the Expat Focus team! We're currently doing some work behind the scenes to make the site even better for our readers, so we've been beavering away making changes in the background.

The most jealousy-inducing post for me personally was the one about running your own business in Barbados - apparently it's not too difficult to set up, either. Just follow these five steps.    more ...
