The Modern Language School is looking for a young, energetic, creative and motivated teacher to fill a position starting on August 1, 2016. Our students range from elementary school to high school, with class sizes as small as individual, one-on-one arrangements to groups of 16 students. Our curriculum encourages teachers to use their individuality and creativity by providing an extensive supply of teaching materials, including games, handouts, reference books and other activities. Our staff has over 30 years of teaching experience, and a teacher trainer is on duty everyday to share ideas. Monthly workshops provide the teachers with the opportunity to develop professionally by exchanging views on teaching methods and techniques.
The Modern Language School has been operating in Chiayi for twenty years. Many of our students have found success beyond the classroom. Some have excelled in various speech contests, ranging from school-wide to national competitions. Many have passed the beginner and intermediate levels of the GEPT, the government-administered English test designed for junior and senior high graduates. Other students have tested into special English-language programs offered by various local junior and senior high schools. Previous students have studied at and others are currently attending high schools and universities in England, Australia and North America, while others major in language studies at Taiwan universities.
Being an American-managed language center, we feel we better understand the challenges foreign teachers face in Taiwan. We will pick you up at the airport, provide assistance in locating housing and purchasing a scooter (translating, interest-free loans, driver’s test prep). Our benefit package includes health insurance, sponsorship for a resident visa and work permit, NT$20,000 end-of-contract bonus, two weeks vacation and also paid holidays. Our monthly salary is NT$55,000 a month for 25 hours per week with a pay raise at the end of six months.
During vacation and holiday periods, teachers have traveled throughout Taiwan, from its sandy beaches in the south to its rugged central mountains to rock concerts in the capital, Taipei. Most have taken trips all across Asia, from Korea to Bali, the Philippines to Thailand. Many have gone onto education careers, while others have found opportunities within the public and private sectors. They have often pointed to their experiences in Taiwan as being important factors in gaining the positions they have applied for.
If you are a native English speaker, have a bachelor’s degree or a college diploma with a TESOL/TESL certificate and can give at least a twelve-month’s commitment, we would be very interested to hear from you. Please send a resume, a recent photo, your phone number and/or e-mail address and any questions you may have to Hugo McGlinchey, managing director of Modern Language School, to any of the contacts below:
