I come seeking advice from my wise fellow Formosa members…
m planning to teach English in Taiwan (ideally Taipei) this year and am uncertain whether to apply for jobs from the U.S. or to wait until I get to Taiwan. Ive talked to some people and done some research online. The advice that I
ve gotten is to be very wary of contracts, but I have heard about some schools that seem to be somewhat more on the up and up (like Kojen and Hess). However, I also read that its much easier to get out of a contract if I`m being mistreated now that an ARC can be transferred.
Any suggestions (or experiences) you could share would be much appreciated.
By the way, I have a master degree in TESOL and would prefer working mostly with adults if possible (e.g. at an adult language program or University of Technology).
