Things have ben going well lately with Teaching in Asia: Tales and the Real Deal.My book about teaching in South Korea and Japan went live a few weeks ago and there has been a great response!
I plan to do some interesting things with this blog in the coming weeks and months. I will of course inform you of news about the book as well as write posts giving teacher tips and lesson ideas. I also plan to do a series where I interview teachers living both in Japan and Korea. I will also talk to educators around the world. I will ask them about their experiences inside and out of classrooms around the world. I will also ask them to share advice with aspiring ESL teachers.
Here is a video I made last year about teaching adults:
As I mentioned in my previous post, the idea for my upcoming book, “Teaching in Asia: Tales and the Real Deal” was born from videos I made about teaching on You Tube. During the past 6 years, I have made many videos. Some have had many views by people interested in the topic and others, not so much.
The book should be ready within a few weeks. It will be the perfect start for anyone interested in moving to South Korea or Japan to begin teaching. Whether you are thinking of a career in ESL or just something to do for a year after graduation, it will definitely be helpful. If you are a teacher in the U.S., Canada, NZ, Australia, England, etc., you may find it interesting as well.
The book will have tips for finding work, information about various types of teaching jobs and help for those of you who are about to become teachers, but have never taught before.
I can’t forget the “Tales” portion of the book. Many people who follow me online do so because they enjoy my storytelling videos. There are plenty of stories in “Teaching in Asia: Tales and the Real Deal” as well. Some are about teaching and others are simply about life in Asia.
Take a few minutes and watch some of my more recent videos about teaching in Asia:
