ESL Jobs in Taiwan Teach English in Taiwan
As with South Korea, Japan and China, TEFL/ESL in Taiwan is a huge business. There are so many many positions for English teachers to chose from. These choices include teaching in a kindergarten, teaching at one of the many private English learning centres, teaching at a university (you will need a MA or Ph.D) , or teaching at one of the international schools that teach subjects in English (You will need to be a qualified teacher in your home country to secure this type of position).
Most of the jobs available are in the private sector. Schools are looking for teachers with a minimum of a Ba. University degree with any subject. And of course any TEFL certification or teaching experience will give you the advantage. For finding a job in Taiwan it is probably best to secure your job before you get to the country, this will give you better bargaining power over your working conditions and contract terms, and also mean you can get your flights reimbursed on completion of your contract.
In the typical school you would be teaching a week of around 25-30 teaching hours. Wages are very high, and if you are looking at learning Mandarin this would make teaching English in Taiwan a much better choice than Mainland China. You can expect your monthly slary to be in the range of 50-65,000 TWD ($1,525-2,000 USD) per month. Living expenses for a month can be a low as 10,000 TWD so it is possible to save quite a bit if you are not to extravagant in your lifestyle.
