    Oh my goodness me. Could you be any more of a liberal? What makes you think that they wanted to learn English? Or did you just want to boost your ego? Хуй.
    :rofl: WHAT?

    I didn't force English onto anyone, there was a school recruiting English Native Speakers to teach people who wanted to learn English.

    A lot of people want to learn a new language it's something to be admired.

    Can't believe I answered you though, you are obviously some sort of :troll:

    Why did you teach English in SE Asia? Why didn't you make the relatively short trip to Moldova and help in the orphanages? Was that not 'worthy enough' of your time?

    Yes, people want to learn a new language. Out of interest, how many languages do you know?

    See, you lot always respond by calling someone a troll for asking legitimate questions. Why, if you are secure in your reasons, would you bother to label someone? It doesn't add up.

    I taught it to make some extra money to support myself while I was studying in China, I didn't teach it in SE Asia, I backpacked round SE Asia to see the sights and experience the culture. It was an enjoyable experience.

    I know two languages my English and Russian. I'd love to know more to be honest and probably should but the language education is disgraceful in the UK.

    I'm sure setting up an orphanage in Moldova would be very rewarding.

    I called you a troll because you know rightly you attacked a harmless statement I made and accused me of having an ego and 'forcing' English Language upon people; which was clearly not the case.

    Well obviously? The car is self explanatory and the deposit I already said? Using my own points against me and calling them your own is laughable
    I think you're missing MY point. My point is that using the money to pay off student debts (which you thought was logical..) is a daft thing to do. I'd spend the money how I said and keep the rest in a savings account for a rainy day.

    I'd pay the three years rent whilst I was at uni. I'd use loans and stuff for actual tuition and stuff. then, with the remaining, just live happily and not blow it, because I'd use the rest to start living after uni is over

    I'm in roughly the same position, I'm planning to hop on the property ladder as soon as possible (whenever I get a fixed address).

    As it stands just putting 5k a year into Isas to avoid tax and the like.

    Bit boring, but as some feel joy in exploring the world, I would feel achievement in settling down haha

    No idea which Uni you are at (with reference to getting a car) but I would go down the investment portfolio route.

    If you invest it on high risk high reward vehicles (not talking cars here) you might be able to live comfortably for life.

    Save it for things you'll actually need. Deposit for a house, pension and in case you're ever unemployed.

    I wouldn't bother investing it. £33k isn't that much.
