Maximum Occupancy: Dave's ESL Cafe
For many English instructors, Dave's ESL Cafe is a safe haven of thoughts, expressions, and information for living abroad. With over a million postings and more than 37,000 registered users - it has become the largest teaching resource for English instructors; overseas. As the numbers of readers continue to grow, there will always be expected delays. The most common delay comes from forum registration. Many who have tried bi-monthly to register for Dave's Cafe have found themselves with this or a similar message:
"New registrations will begin again in Late September."
According to Korea Wikia, the registration process requires readers to send an email with why you'd like to join, as well as some other collective personal information. Once Dave or his moderators approve of your email, you will have successfully created your account. But it seems individuals that have gotten this far into the process have been a rare find.
When emailed: asking, Dave's ESL Cafe, when these specific dates of "late September" exactly were, there was no response.
Since 2002, Dave's ESL Cafe has provided a quality of service for all abroad instructors - giving them the useful information they need; not only to teach, but to live as well. Although the process of information has been delayed for others - for many it is still a vast and vital resource. But for those who prefer a much more intimate e-community, that still provides helpful information for abroad - there may be alternatives.
