I am from South Africa and am thinking about coming over to teach English in Taiwan. I have however a few major concerns that I am hoping someone out there can help me with. The more advice the better!!!
I am a single mother of a 11yr old and a 7yr old and I would really like them to share this experience with me. I don’t think I would be able to cope without having them with me over a long period. I am hoping for them to join me a few months after I arrive once I’ve had time to settle.
My question is what is life like for a single parent over there? Would it be possible for me as a single mother to cope financially? Would home school be possible or would I have to send them to public school?
Another question is I am not too sure as to what the best places are to live. I would like to hear about the different cities. If anybody could suggest a good website to visit that could tell me about the different cities and regions I would be most grateful.
I am dealing with a specific agency but if you know of any other good ones,please share.
I need info!!! I’ve been on the net most evenings trying to find out as much as I can but I would appreciate some first hand experiences.
