Are you tired of your dead-end job? Are you feeling a bit boxed in by your tedious existence? Are you pretty sure there should be more to life than this?
Well, so is English Teacher X.
ENGLISH TEACHER X GUIDE TO TEACHING ENGLISH ABROAD is a brutally frank, often scathing, frequently profane, occasionally profound, but always insightful look at English teaching abroad in the 21st century, written by a TEFL veteran with nearly 20 years of experience.
A perfect guide for beginners and those thinking of entering the profession, it deals with a general consideration of the pros and cons of TEFL, and how to decide whether it's right for you; gives some general advice about how to find a job and choose a decent employer; and offers some advice for dealing with the most common problems experienced by newbies in the business of Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
Written with heaping doses of ETX's usual mordant humor, cutting insight, and blistering sarcasm, it also includes interviews with experienced and novice teachers of English as a foreign language, classic ETX cartoons and essays, useful activities and resources, and updated information about typical salaries and conditions.
