with the closer communication between countries. you can travel across atlantic easily which you even could not think about it few years ago. working at home you could have more time to your family and friends. but working abroad can earn more and experience different lifestyle. so one question comes, what's your choice? at home or abroad?

I love traveling so much; so I would have to say I prefer working abroad. The only thing is I don't have the opportunity yet and work options seem vague right now. Perhaps when economy has picked up a bit, there will be more offers then.

hi, working abroad really has some advatages. if you are going to work abroad, you could search for information on internet or ask your friends, there are many chances to work abroad. at least you can teach your native lanugage, i think it is a good job, earn enough and have time to travel.

I have had the chance to work abroad a couple of times, and it has been very interesting. I love travelling, and living in another country for a while is a great way to learn more about that place. I have worked in two different homes for people with special needs, one of them was in Estonia and the other one was in Poland, in both cases I had to learn a new language, and that was a big challenge, but it was also very interesting and I learned a lot. I am married now and I have a home and many pets, so I can't just work abroad like I used to, I am happy about the life that I have now, but I am really grateful that I had the chance to work abroad when I was younger.

hi riyasbass. working home indeed could keep in close tough with your family and friends. if you earn more in your position now, so that would be no regret. i think love is the most important thing we should pursue in our life. no matter with falimy, friend or lover. with love, your life become colorful.

I like to work in my own country because here the money currency is high as it is in £ and there are already many and many people coming here to work to send money to their families so working here is really an advantage though.

hi, med, i think you live in a marvellous place. you are really lucky. on one hand, you can earn enough to support your family, and on the other hand, you can stay with your family as long as you like. what's more, i think there are many nationalities gathered there, you would learn more multi-culture.

I would love to work at home if I'm paid well. I work in Dubai and its for the money. I dont miss home much as I chat with my family daily and I go home once in a year. It's good here as there are more that 100 nationalities working here in Dubai and you get to know people and their culture. The experience you gain when working with people from different nationalities and styles is definitely a plus.

hi jappy. you are so lucky to work in dubai.dubai is also a marvellous for travelling. and also it is well-known for earning good there. i do not know there are more than 100 nationalities. but just going home only once in a year is not enough. your relatives could pay a visit to you sometimes i think.

hi, you are the person who pays more attention to family and friend i think. i definitly understand your feelings. when i first come to college, that was the first time far away from my families. i had not customed to the new life for a long time at that time. maybe it's called homesickness.

I would love to go abroad and work or add a degree to my existing qualification.Nothing can be more satisfying than going abroad learning new cultures and visiting new and exciting places.What scares me is whether the response of locals will be friendly or hostile.The more places you visit the broader will be your outlook instead of being confined to a single place.

hi picjim, i am almost agree with you. that going abroad learning new cultures and visiting new exciting places are very satisfied. it benefits to your work and cultivation of personality. and i think the people i went there mostly are kind and friendly. if you being friend with them, i think they would be the same attitude to you.

I go to school abroad and I've got to say its pretty nice. The environment tends to give you a randomly exciting feeling and gives you a chance for improvement. I never hated working home, but going to school abroad gives you experiences that I think everyone should experience , such as diverse cultures or new languages.

I prefer to work here in my country because I am more comfortable working here than abroad. My native country is the only nation I can call home, so I better remain here and just be contented with my life here.

I would like to work abroad for several years to earn some money. After I earn enough money, I would like to come back to my own country to find a job that is not so busy. Anyway, home is the best.
