Does anyone know of any specific Taipei schools willing to hire non-native speakers as teachers? I searched, but couldn’t find the right thread – surely there must be one, though?
I know someone whose English is good enough to teach kids English, but every time she tells them she’s from a certain European country where English is not a native language, she gets hit by the door on the way out of the interview. I was surprised to hear of her bad luck, since surely there must be some bushibans which are (unfairly) more interested in having parents see a white teacher than in what someone’s mother tongue happens to be. She’s here on a marriage visa, btw.
There are other threads for discussing why native speakers do or do not make better teachers or for how unfair it is that some bushibans are racist, turning down ABC’s or dark-skinned teachers – I agree that it’s wrong, but let’s please not rehash that here, thanks.
