I've been in Taldykorgan, Kazakhstan for almost two years now teaching English in a public school. Taldykorgan is great, and I've been able to learn Russian whilst here, but there aren't any other expats! haha.
If anyone would be interested in meeting up one of these weekends in Almaty let me know, maybe we can all go to a pub or restaurant together sometime. I'm 26 years old by the way.
