Hi. Currently I teach adults and children in Japan, and I’m planning to come to Taiwan soon. Lately I’ve been wondering if there’s anything I have learned about teaching in Japan that doesn’t work well anywhere [but] Japan, and that I will have to un-learn in Taiwan. Basically, if there are any classroom management techniques I’ve become accustomed to using that work well in Japan, but will spell disaster in Taiwan, I’d like to learn about it here, on this board, before I learn it the hard way in the classroom.
I know kids are kids everywhere, but is there anything special in Taiwan that I should be on my guard for? I just want to learn is much as I can before I get there so I don’t do anything really stupid.
