(i also posted this in the “salary” topics post, i hope that isnt a problem)
I’ve recently decided I’d look into the possiblility of teaching in Taiwan. a few months ago i completed my service in Peace Corps and am looking for more opportunities to work overseas. i taught English while i served in honduras and enjoyed it a lot.
the point of this post: I found an ad on another site for the “taipei oxford international school”. it’s a salaried position (NT$60,000+bonuses for approx 40 hour work week). the write-up sounded pretty good, lots of extras and a seemingly nice place to work. is this a realistic starting point for a newbie looking to teach in Taiwan? can i or should i start the ball rolling without ever having been there? am i crazy to set this kind of thing up before i visit the place?
anyone out there familiar with this school, good or bad rep? am i way off base here? as I said, I am new to this I am ready to get going. any advice you can give me would be great.
thanks for your time,
