Overview

English Teacher X, a legendary figure in the world of TEFL, follows up his debut book with this raw, lurid, and vivid memoir of his first five years teaching English abroad.

In 1995, after a year of aimless wandering, a young man answered an ad in a newspaper in Bangkok and inadvertently became English Teacher X, working, in the next five years, in seven different cities in five different countries.

From a tropical island paradise in Thailand to an industrial hellhole of Post-Soviet Russia, English Teacher X describes, in violent imagery, the life of an English teacher overseas, encountering dishonest and exploitative employers, prostitutes, drugs, alcohol, degenerate colleagues and English groupies, questing in vain for the Authentic Cultural Experience.

Editorial Reviews

Roosh V
This is a compilation of short stories by English Teacher X, an American guy who has taught English abroad before I even knew what travel was. His stories of traveling, teaching English, and chasing girls give a great taste of what it was like to be on the road during the 90's and 00's. It's a fun read that I knocked out in two sittings. His crisp writing wastes no words.
