TESOL Teacher Review: The Rewards of Living and Teaching English in Taiwan

Teach English in Taiwan

When I was in university, it always interested me to travel and teach abroad. After university I travelled throughout Asia and met many people teaching there. They absolutely loved it and recommended it, so I decided to pursue teaching English.

The benefits of living in another country are countless. In many of these countries, you have the ability to live very comfortably and save a lot of money. In turn, you live and experience a totally different culture and way of life!

OnTESOL Review: Teaching English in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Teach English in Taiwan

My partner and I are living and teaching English in Taiwan, in a city called Kaohsiung. There were a number of reasons that influenced our choice. The school we’re currently at, KNS Institute, is in the city and they guarantee us great working hours. The school is thriving and hiring more teachers when a lot of other smaller schools are cutting back on teaching hours.  There are many job opportunities in Taiwan so you can live comfortably and save money. The climate is quite tropical and you are close to the ocean and the tropical beaches of Kenting.

TEFL Taiwan: Finding Accommodation

TEFL Taiwan: Accommodation The first thing I recall fretting about, after making my decision to come to Taiwan, was housing. Plunging into a foreign country, head first, with no first-hand experience with local real estate, can be intimidating. A good deal of research should take place before any housing situation is formally agreed upon. Prospective renters should ideally visit their potential homes before signing any contract since any number of unforeseen problems can arise in the absence of a proper inspection.
