A Year in Korea: An American Journal
Just what is it like to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) in South Korea? Through this journal, the author provides a frank and candid account of the various events, commitments, tasks, relationships (at both work and play). The text is changed very little from the actual handwritten journal kept for the fifty weeks Wellens spent teaching ESOL at Chungnam Institute of Foreign Language Education (CIFLE), a state-of-the-art facility in Gongju, South Korea.
Hundreds of thousands of university degree holders and of native English speakers from the USA, New Zealand, the UK, Canada, Australia and South Africa teach English in South Korea every year as help to provide the government-mandated English language requirement in the schools. Anyone considering teaching English in South Korea (or anywhere in the world) will benefit from the reading of this book as preparation for a transformative experience.
