If you've ever thought about teaching English in an Asian country, then this book is for you. You'll learn what to expect when you arrive, how to pick a good school, what qualifications you'll need, how to come up with interesting ways to teach foreign kids, and much more.
But this book goes much deeper than just teaching. The writer shares some very personal information about dating and finding a deep and meaningful relationship while living abroad. What starts out as a helpful guide to help newcomers arriving in Taiwan turns into a very heartwarming love story, as marriage, children, bizarre customs, and overbearing in-laws enter the picture.
Filled with dozens of pictures, the author pulls no punches in his description of life in Taiwan. It's not always pretty, but it's always entertaining.
