I am in the process of making the move to Italy (my goal is for April of next year) and am having trouble deciding on what would be the appropriate (and most successful) route to take.
Basically, these are my options:
*6 months of language school and then find employment
*Au Pair- this would be through an agency like Interxchange. Has anyone had any experience with them?
*Pay 3 months on an apartment up front, find a job while I'm there and get a work visa
*Teaching English (I have TEFL ceritifcate)
I realize that it is not an easy thing to accomplish- but I HAVE to do it, in order to keep my sanity. Any ideas or websites (or books, anything!) you could point me to would be wonderful. I do speak Italian, not fluently but well enough.
I am also looking into Amsterdam or Paris if Italy does not work.
