[quote=“j99l88e77”]I went to Taiwan when I was 33. I was there for 2 years. I am now in Korea and I’m 36. The best age to teach is elementary as far as I’m concerned. Serious adults are also good, but good luck finding that. Kindergarten can be easy, but not really for a newcomer. But a newcomer should teach that. Given your age, you should be able to get a good amount of work. The salaries suck now. Do some research and find out what jobs you can get. The more hours, the better. Especially when you sign a contract. Beware though. You could sign for 30 hours and they could reduce it to sweet fark all and reduce your salary. That’s if you sign a contract and don’t go over the details. Many people think that everything is all and fine and sign, but they take advantage of this. You gotta make clauses. If you do this, however, they might not hire you. It’s weird.
All in all, if you just want to go to Taiwan and earn enough and maybe save a bit then do it. You could have a good time.[/quote]
Thanks for the feedback so far.
I have done enough research to see that Taiwan is sort of like the wild-west, some things are fair, others aren’t, and most things aren’t what they appear to be. Its common for people to get ripped off or put in bad situations unknowingly. I am hoping that after hearing all these stories that I will be able to dodge at least a few of them. Also having someone to live with who is fluent in Taiwanese, Chinese, and English is a big help.
I was hoping that if I learn some chinese I might even be able to get some Graphic Design work along with my gf. I’m sure they could use somebody in the field who can actually make coherant Enlgish sentences.
