[quote=“2Enigma”]Whoop de doo, your an old guy! Most kiddy schools wont want you because of age. Screw 'em. They don’t know what they are missing. It’s cool for students to see a young kid with cutoff, sandals and weird hair. They don’t pay the tuition. Mom and pop do. That’s the important class.
You have 2 factors so out front that most can’t even see it.
You have the “grandpa/grandma factor” and you have the a professional appearance (assuming nice clothes)
Kids don’t pay the bill. Mom and dad do. I always make sure that mom and/or dad get to view one class en situation. If they don’t pay, assuming you know your crap, I would be surprised.
Bottom line, we all get old. I am older than you and I work 7 days per week and turn down classes. Just use what you have and come to Taiwan. We need old farts like you and me.[/quote]
OP did not mention getting a retirement job. Maybe he has enough funds for retirement in Taiwan? If he is a US citizen, there are some retirement considerations such as health care cost, and FATCA.
I am a dual citizen (Taiwan & US). I am similar in age right now, and I am not retired yet mainly because of the uncertainty of US health care new law (PPACA, aka Obamacare). I plan to retire in both places with few months in each place. My estimated living expenses are quite similar between the 2 places, because I have to add the airfare to and from Taiwan, plus I plan to pay health care in two countries.
When I get passed 65 or older, I will have a decision to make in which place to stay permanently. My wife and I are thinking of staying in Taiwan because of the low cost of long-term care but my children are likely to stay in US, so we will make that decision when we get much older.
