Wherever you are in the world, there’s a rich difference between your wonderful home country and your proud host nation. Festivals, foods, traditions, superstitions, and behaviours: the world has some amazing celebrations.
The wonderful thing about teaching at an International School is that you will likely be exposed to many of them through the school year. Lunar New Year, Carnaval, Hogmanay, Diwali. An English teenager I know still fondly recounts the Vietnamese tale of the man in the moon and the tree that took him there.
Your school will have local staff working alongside you. Find out which festivals matter most to them, their families, and the country.
