Yes China! Yes China! is a story about... tacos. You thought I was going to say China, didn't you? Well, there might be something about China in here, but this is not your ordinary travelogue.

Yes China! is a funny, self-deprecating, and brutally honest travelogue/memoir about teaching English in modern China. The author, an American fish out of water, shares a unique perspective on the Chinese classroom as well as what it's like growing up post Mormonism and how living abroad helped him overcome those insecurities. If you have a sense of humor (seriously, that part's important) and any interest in what it's like to teach English in China, then this book is for you. Nielsen describes in vivid detail moments from his elementary, middle school, and adult training school classes, warts and all. He does not shy away from including his own embarrassments, frustrations, and shortcomings, but through those trials and errors, a love is born. Nielsen first went to China in 2005 as an immature, 21-year old college dropout and newly ex-Mormon. With no prior teaching experience and no understanding of the Chinese language or China in general, he was absolutely ill-prepared. But over the next five years, he continued to make more trips to China, signing up for more teaching stints in other cities, slowly maturing and coming to appreciate what it is that China could teach him. Because, obviously, he couldn't teach China.Biographie de l'auteur :
Clark Nielsen is an American-born author and web/game developer who loves to travel as much as he loves to write. He has over two years of experience teaching English as a foreign language and has made several trips to China for that very purpose. Of course, now he visits China for other reasons; that's where his wife is from. The two of them currently live in Los Angeles, where Nielsen continues to spend his free time writing fantasy fiction.
