    I thought about teaching my native language but i have no clue would anyone want to learn Croatian/Serbian and if they would they already have teachers or parents because people that want to learn it are usually with croatian heritage


    ok, how much IS realistic to save in 3 months?

    I didn't read the whole thread; is a foreigner "work permit" an issue?

    If so then getting jobs under the table may pose difficulties if not an illegality and its repercussions.

    I don't know about the legality but if it is legal than maybe Importing an EBay business (and getting paid via PayPal debit card) setup is an option regardless.

    Check international hostels in major cities, a lot of them have a policy where they only hire foreign workers, this also gives you a place to stay.
    Whoops.

    No, it is not an issue. i would go over CCUSA and they secure a J1 visa, I am not sure what exactly it covers but I know you can work in the US up to 4 months + 30 days after you can travel. Then you need to leave the States.

    I asked because all the apartments (flats) I've seen or heard of have asked you to sign a lease contract, in which you promise to live there for 6 months, or 1 year, and if you leave before that term fully passes (for example, if you only stay there for 4 months), you have to pay a large fee of perhaps a couple hundred dollars (on top of the rent payments you were already paying). I think I have seen one place that offered 3 month lease periods, but not sure.

    I say that because you should be aware, even though I'd hate to discourage people from visiting The States... Think about it, whatever works best for you.
