Re: Opportunities for teaching English

I've been living here for ten years, and came with the intention of teaching English. I did a course similar to the CELTA one and I also have a BA. I have worked on and off in schools, but technically you need a teaching certificate to do this, which I didn't have, but some schools would hire you an...

English TV channels

Hi, looking for some advice. 'Satcure' mentioned on a topic today that FilmOn tv has now gone to paid subscription. We have been watching U.K. TV through FilmOn but the feed wasn't great, so I don't want to subscribe to something that won't be stable. Any suggestions? Is it possible to get free view...

Re: Plumber needed.

Thanks for that. Have you had them do repair jobs like fixing sinks and toilets? We had another guy in some time ago. He welded our outside pipe well but didn't do a good job on inside stuff.

Plumber needed.

I wonder if somebody can recommend a good plumber in the Chania area. I live near Platanias which is 15 minutes drive west of Chania. It would help if he could speak English but I can speak Greek(but not perfectly!) if his English is not so good. Any recommendations would be gratefully received. The...

KTEO

I also forgot to ask. Where exactly is it on the Akrotiri? I think it's not far from the airport. Is it signposted?

KTEO

Thanks for that Al. Can you tell me how much it cost you there and how much the fine was? Oh, and were you able to just go there and get it done or did you have to make an appointment? My car becomes four years old on the 29th of September so I suppose I still have some time if I go there this week!

KTEO

I read some very useful information on the living in crete website about the Greeek MOT, or KTEO as they call it. I know there is a private company that does this near the Carrefour in Mournies, but can anybody tell me where the Government one is? Is it near Tavronitis? And does it make much differe...

English speakers

English speakers on Crete

A friend of mine just asked me a question about how many English speakers might be living on Crete. Anybody have any idea? Not sure if he meant ex-pats of all nationalities who can speak English or purely native speakers.

All very interesting. Now my friend is asking is there anything available on the Akrotiri? He thought he would be paying over 600 euro a month for what he wants. What are prices like on the Akrotiri? Any ideas?
