Product Description

About the Author

Wes Weston is a nomadic individual. Upon graduating from the University of Colorado in 2002, he spent the following two years roaming about. During this time, Wes backpacked across Western Europe, traveled to Paraguay to work as a volunteer, completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, and worked seasonal jobs in Florida and Alaska to finance his wanderlust. Then, in 2004, Wes moved abroad for the first time in his life. What better place to begin an international escapade than the tropical country of Costa Rica. While living in Costa Rica, Wes worked as a volunteer coordinator for Habitat for Humanity International. He also encountered numerous people who taught English overseas. Finally, a vocation was chosen. Since 2006, Wes has taught English abroad in several different countries. His work experience reflects a unique and diverse teaching career, involving various cultures, learning institutions, and age groups. Wes has taught ESL in South Korea, working one year at a language academy and two years at a university. He has also worked at a public high school in rural Namibia, discovering what it’s like to live without comfortable amenities both in and out of the classroom. Most recently, Wes taught at a Catholic orphanage in the Dominican Republic working with at-risk children.

I can relate to Wes's TEFL adventure completely. Having travelled the world as TEFL teacher I always wished that I had taught in South Korea, but even more so after reading this book. I love the way Wes talks about his experiences in the class and also actually living in the country. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking of TEFLing around the world. A great buy for potential TEFL teachers.

People who go to live and work in another country (even the next county sometimes), usually have a different perspective of the world around them. It can sometimes be a very steep learning curve but worth it. Yes, it also quite often entails educating the locals of the 'visitor's' homeland. -Looking forward to Wes' next book.

This book contains some useful information on classroom management and making the transition to teaching ESL. It's quite well written and the narrator comes across as an engaging and nice guy. Worth a read for anyone considering whether TESL in Korea is for them.
