- English Teacher X Guide To Teaching English Abroad
on Sep. 02, 2011
This book was AWESOME!!! As a future TEFL teacher, I found this immensely helpful, including survival tactics, how things REALLY work, and techniques to make the classes more bearable, and how to avoid or stem pitfalls. This book has humor, academic excellence, and valuable insights abound within it. This is the dirty glorious truth about TEFL from a man who knows.
It's worth the price just for the entertainment value, but worth 100 times as much if you are considering TEFL as a vocation, or currently teach ESL, home or abroad. I also highly recommend the other book available by this author- "To Travel Hopelessly"...
I loved it, and may donate further to the author, just for the extensive value I found within his writings, musings, and advice. Thank you, English Teacher X!!!

I loved this book! Painfully honest, unassuming, and unpretentious. I read it in one sitting and couldn't stop, only wishing there was more, when I was finished! The author takes you on his trips, and runs the gamut of experiences, emotions, exasperation, and ecstasy! Absolutely hilarious, and fully sobering, which is something, given the general drunken misadventures within.
Stop jerking around and just get this book immediately.
You'll thank me.

This body of work impacted me deeply. It is the rare sort of writing that gives you chills, and reminds you of the dark recesses that we often avoid. It tells truth without apology or consideration, making it like a punch in the face that you are somehow grateful for. It is this sort of writing that first inspired me to take up the quill myself, and it is where I find the most value. There is compassion within, and a certain courage of thought, even when it is tentative. I have a deep admiration for this Author’s work, and perhaps many of his weaknesses are, in fact, his strengths. There is no lack of strength in his character or his writing. Those who read him may find that strength imparted to them. I certainly did.
