Penghu Islands - Teaching Position
Feel like living on an island surrounded by fresh air and crystal clear ocean beaches? Enjoy a relaxed lifestyle in the Penghu Archipelago without the pollution, stress and daily grind of the big city. Dragon English School in Magong is seeking a Foreign English Teacher to start in June/July.
Magong is a small seaside city where you can find almost everything you need. Locals are relaxed and friendly and it's a great place to immerse yourself in Taiwanese culture & language. Penghu's pristine beaches and rocky coasts are fit for snorkeling, windsurfing, fishing, diving and more.
There are scores of beautiful islands for you to visit and explore while here and interesting local food and people to meet.
Penghu is a small somewhat isolated place where few people speak English. The summer is long sunny and very hot while the winter is very windy and chilly!
Life in Penghu suits someone who is outgoing, independent and enjoys the outdoors. There are few foreigners here and less of the conveniences of living in a big city so Penghu is not for everyone. For info and photos of the islands visit: https://vitalpenghu.wordpress.com/
