  1. He worked for the same group and now he is an expert? This dude was coddled and molded to a tourist package plan. If you really want to experience living abroad and teaching English, change jobs often. Live with the natives, learn their culture, and don't take cookie cutter job offers. You don't need to know how to market yourself to recruiters or schools.

    This isn't like getting an office job back in your home country. The recruiter doesn't care about you once you are in your job. They work for the schools, not you. The person you ought to be talking with is the manager of the school you intend on going to because the owner probably doesn't speak English. Same goes with public schools, the principal usually knows no English.

    Be your own book, write it, live it.

  2. Tom did you like the certification program at Western Florida? Do you endorse the TEFL program advertised on your blog? Did you have to go back to Florida to take the state exam?

  3. Great! A book under your belt too. I miss your food videos. I was contemplating teaching over seas but I am to old so I am working on masters in stead.

  4. Does it elaborate on how much easier or hard it'll be to get hired and teach in Korea if you.. you know… dn't actually look Asian. Like if you're white, or Gods forbid Black/non-white?

  5. Hello, Tom. Tom Gates Diaries sounds better. Rather than Red Dragon. Red dragon gives communist or socialist feeling impression. Just my opinion.

  6. Best of Luck on the sales of your book. You seem to be a multi-talented individual. What's next? Perhaps a movie on the life of Tom Gates?

  7. No plans to teach in Korea, but I'd buy just to support you. I'm sure anything you've written is well worth the read, sir. :]

  8. Even though I have no desire to teach English in Korea, I still watched this video as you are a passionate and great vlogger! Good luck with it. Love your videos 🙂

  9. nice….i will recommend your book to people who want to teach english in korea….who did you get to publish your book?

  10. This book is going to be very helpful to someone out there. I am in mid-career with a large corporation. But 13 years ago, I contemplated seriously about teaching English in Korea. After thinking about all the pros and cons, I decided not to pursue. But I think it is one of the best early career move for many new graduates out there.

  11. Great idea Tom!
    I should write a book too – about teaching Australia and South Korea and soon to be China! 😀
