Teaching English in Taiwan 101

Asia's English teaching market is one of the largest in the world, and Taiwan is one of the oldest and most established markets among Asian nations. Taiwan is a fantastic option for those interested in learning Mandarin but seeking a place a bit smaller than China.

English teachers in Taiwan can expect to find jobs primarily after the Lunar New Year (this varies each year, but typically falls in late January or early February) and again in July - August. Interviews are conducted well in advance, both over the phone and via e-mail. If teachers prefer, positions can also be found on the ground in-person. Instructors are responsible for airfare and housing expenses. Most teachers live in apartments recently vacated by previous teachers, and many room with coworkers.  Teaching positions are with either children or adults, though the market for teaching children is particularly outstanding.

A generous salary affords English teachers a comfortable lifestyle, with the possibility to save up to $500 USD per month. Schools typically offer 20 to 25 hours of work per week, leaving teachers plenty of time to travel and explore while they are employed. English teachers need an AA or bachelor’s degree to teach in Taiwan, and TEFL certification is required. Most English teaching jobs are found in the major cities such as Taipei, Kaohsiung, Taichung, Taoyuan, and Tainan.
