How do you feel when you take a new job? The first day of anxiety and uncertainty are eased with you blending into the system, and everyone and everything seems to adjust comfortably around you. What if you took a job on the other side of the world, where you could not understand the language, customs, currency, food, and just about everything else? YOU will be different for a whole year! This is the world of a foreign ESL teacher. A Jewel Amid the Yellow Dust--K.O.R.E.A. will explain how this works.

About the author (2003)

K. Lee Washington maintains a home at the New Jersey shore. After many years in management and sales he sought new adventures and diverse associations. He took two years to visit Korea, teach English, and to absorb its culture. When he is not writing or on the beach, he teaches in the local school system. He is pictured here (second from the left) in Samsung Plaza in Bundang, South Korea with students Jieun, Celine, and Charlie.
