Conversations With A Deaf Cat
Ever wonder what it’s like to be to work in a foreign country, experience new foods and cultures and maybe find a way to help other people while you do it? Most people who become foreign teachers imagine going off to some exotic destination to share their knowledge with people who don’t have the same advantages as them. Sounds like an exciting and noble adventure, right?
But what happens if you take the plunge and go off to another country where you don’t even speak the language and EVERYTHING GOES WRONG? How do you deal with getting stuck doing a job you never wanted to do, dealing with deceptive employers, or not getting paid on time, if at all?
Conversations With a Deaf Cat explores the true adventures experienced by Michael Durack as a foreign English teacher and/or volunteer in China, Chile and Canada. It also chronicles his experience as an assistant caregiver along with his wife for his mother-in-law’s final months in the Netherlands. In short, it provides an insight into the highs and lows of being a foreign teacher/volunteer/caregiver in a foreign environment that is a must-read for anyone contemplating a similar career or simply interested in knowing what it’s REALLY like.
