Most of the ESL jobs in Taiwan offer some benefits like one way or roundtrip fare, accommodations and some paid vacations. An English teacher working in Taiwan can save a good amount of money since the cost of living is low.Renting a place to stay in some of the biggest cities in Taiwan like Taipei and Kaohsiung would only cost 150USD for rooms and around 300 to 400USD for a 2-3 bedroom apartment.

Someone with good English skills, both written and spoken and with a university degree can work as an English teacher in Taiwan. A TEFL certificate can also be very helpful, although not required. For interested teachers, an actual copy of your university diploma is needed.

English teaching jobs are plentiful in Taiwan. For someone with an M.A or Ph.D degree teaching in the universities can be a very good opportunity.

For a licensed teacher, certified to teach at home plenty of teaching positions are available in the international schools in Taiwan.

Cram schools or chain English schools are usually hunting for English teachers who can teach in the afternoon and in the evening. For online job hunting here are some sites that may prove beneficial:

My trip to Taiwan & My friend Colin

I went to Taipei and met up with my Japanese friend. Her father was a "big wig," with Sony in Taiwan and my friend, her mother and their driver took me all over Taipei. I was only there for two days but I saw a lot! It is an amazing, and vibrant city.

I ate at a very interesting Chinese restaurant. Loved the food! It is a city that never sleeps! I felt very safe there, and I have heard from friends that Taiwan is a great country to teach English in.

My friend Colin studied Chinese, taught English and somehow ended up on Taiwan national television playing guitar and singing. Colin I love ya! But how did you ever get on TV playing guitar and singing?! Colin became an overnight celebrity with marriage proposals from all over Taiwan. Heeventually went on to China for more study.
