Westerners Andy Dutton and Danny Cole teach English at Luxury Gardens International School in China. Despite being unqualified, they have relatively high salaries, and enjoy lives of privilege. They travel Southeast Asia, drink excessively and visit brothels.
Meanwhile, the school principal, Peter Li, is busy trying to build the school into one with an elite global reputation. His plan involves getting the school accredited by the International Diploma Organization. To meet accreditation requirements, he begins the process of replacing the likes of Andy and Danny with real professional teachers, like Glenn Whitman.
Glenn, however, turns out to be troublesome. Praise for Foreign Teachers:

"This is why people don't read books anymore" - Fake New York Times
"Ever wish you were on the Titanic? . . . Here's your chance. . . The story takes place on land yet somehow it feels like a sinking ship." - Vanity Ferris Wheel
