I visited Taipei in December and really loved it. I’m currently teaching in South Korea and am considering making the move to Taiwan. My current job will finish October 20th.
I have 3 years experience (cram schools where I was mostly treated well)
A 120-TEFL cert
Bachelors degree unrelated to teaching
- Gain a new perspective to see if I like teaching.
- Save between 21-22K NT per month
- Experience living in a new country
What’s a realistic salary for me? I know the minimum salary for new teachers is 600 NT (although I’ve seen offers for 570) I have teaching experience so I’m hoping for 650-700.
What’s the job market like around December-January? (I plan to work / live outside Taipei to save money). I prefer mid to large cities so I can meet people and do things.
I see a lot about this 18% tax rule. If I arrive in December or January will that affect me?
