I’ve discussed with a friend the other day. He’s Canadian, working in Taiwan (not in Taipei) as English teacher.
He doesn’t have a degree so his boss bought (where, big mystery, i know places for that in Thailand but not in Taiwan) a fake degree then bribed someone to get him ARC.
I’ve known a guy who was French teacher: he got is ARC thought he just gave his high school diploma.
One of my friends is a teacher. He’s Spanish, his degrees are in Spanish. They are real but since they are not in English the Taiwanese authorities are very picky, they need translations etc… So far, he’s still struggling to get his ARC/work permit… he’s struggling for two months…
