Recommended books-ESL teachers crazy experiences overseas

Post by zboy1 » January 11th, 2013, 7:18 am

If anyone is interested in becoming an ESL teacher overseas, I am personally recommending these books to other members of HA--as it details the trials and tribulations and wacky stories of some ESL teachers that people will find quite intriguing.

Regardless, though, it is always prudent to go with some money in your pocket and a solid back-up plan.


I recommend you avoid going to Korea, Ghost. After reading many of the books from ESL teachers about the place, Koreans are really some of the worst people on the planet. I should know, being a Korean man myself; rude, materialistic, greedy, hateful, racist, and very Anti-American, Koreans can be the scum of the Earth....
