So I am thinking about moving to Taiwan to hopefully teach corporate/adult ESL
The problem is that I’m Chinese Canadian, so I know that I will instantly be discriminated against, even though I pretty much grew up in Canada. But I do speak Mandarin, and understand Cantonese, and I’m hoping to present that as an advantage. I was contemplating between Shanghai and Taiwan.
But leaning towards Taiwan, because it’s easier to get the initial visa but I think the demand for ESL teachers, especially private tutoring is a lot lower.
So, just wondering how easy/difficult would it be to secure a decent paying ESL teaching job with good salary/benefits with not too many hours that would give me a work permit, and allow me to do other things on the side? Is bilingualism extremely common here, and where/how should I look for a well packaged job?
