PUT YOURSELF IN THE SHOES OF A FIRST-TIME ENGLISH TEACHER AS SOON AS YOU OPEN THE BOOK!

Humorous, informative, lighthearted and educational, Happy Time Go Fast takes you inside the classroom and standing in front of the students. Wes Weston shares amusing stories and anecdotes that illustrate his misadventures with discipline, classroom management, positive reinforcement, and even school romance. These experiences are then put into context against the serious backdrop of English education in South Korea where the English craze is uncanny.

Happy Time Go Fast also takes you outside the classroom, examining what it?s like to live in a foreign country. From learning the Korean language to learning how to use chopsticks, from discovering the fascinating world of Konglish to discovering the tranquility of Korean saunas, Wes Weston reveals some of the cultural norms and quirks of life in South Korea.

Whether you?re considering teaching English in Korea, or just intrigued by the thought of it, Happy Time Go Fast paints a vivid picture of a teacher?s life in Korea, folds it into a paper airplane, and sends you flying towards an overseas adventure.
