I want to know what it’s really like in the classroom at an English school in Taiwan that hires foreigners. Is there someone watching over you, how are you as the teacher, “graded”
How qualified does an applicant really have to be prior to being hired and in the classroom?
Are the rumors of “glorified babysitting” and “paid to hang out with kids who love to hear English” true, or at least to some extent?
Can someone with okay English (not the best, but can pull off good sounding English) but a love for kids and Taiwan culture (and a college degree from the states) get hired? Oh, Hess has been an idea but I get mixed responses from the posts here…
Current area possibility: XinDian.
Thanks for your responses, I’m looking to see if it’s a good idea for my boyfriend to come with me when I move to Taiwan for a bit to work for my dad, considering the economic woes in the states right now. I’ll be asking detailed questions about his qualifications later and/or other prospects of his possible move.
Please be honest, but respectful, this is a huge deal for both of us but more so for him because he’d be making a bigger move than me (he’s Vietnamese and has never had great opportunities and not sure if he should because his heart won’t be in it 100%…besides me as a good reason of course but that won’t allow him to survive haha).
