An affectionally irreverent window into the cultural adjustments that await the unsuspecting ‘Western’ university graduate who thinks a year or so teaching English in South Korea would be a novel way to travel, make some money and have a bit of an overseas adventure. Alain Howes packed all of his (South African) cultural baggage when he flew to South Korea at the age of 42. Jumping boots and all into village life in rural Korea he was alternatively puzzled, amused, amazed and even shocked but always impressed by the warmth, care and sincere friendship of his Korean students, colleagues and neighbours. This book is a useful guide to anyone considering a gap year or just seeking an adventure in South Korea as a TEFL Teacher. Packed with information and helpful hints on how and where to find TEFL jobs, the school environment, Korean culture and etiquette. It gives practical advice and tips, as well as ideas and suggestions on how to cope in your new environment. The author makes use of humorous anecdotes which help to convey to the reader the day to day working and social life of a TEFL Teacher in South Korea. The book also lists numerous websites which will allow the reader to do further research.
