Impressing Heaven

This is a collection of short stories based on real conversations with real young adult learners of English in South Korea from 2007 to 2010. You might call it creative non-fiction. As these individuals relayed their life situations and dilemmas to me, I imagined the unfolding drama of struggling with identity, negotiating global English, and making career decisions, putting myself in their shoes.
