I would really appreciate if any of you could help with my upcoming move to Taiwan. I had a good look through previous threads but couldn’t see anything directly relevant to my situation.
In March next 2019 I plan to move over from the UK (my fiancé is Taiwanese and she would like me to come and live for at least a year having visited previously for a month in 2017).
I’ve contacted some companies about working for them (I work in wine - I posted here recently about this) and some have said that it would be better if I can speak Mandarin. I am considering coming over and taking a Mandarin course to start with for 3-6 months and have heard that if I do this I will be eligible for a student visa. Can anyone confirm if this is the case as I’m struggling to find correct information. Has anyone here done something similar? I have also heard that it is possible to work whilst on a student visa - surely this is not the case if I am only planning to study 3-6 months?
Any tips on the visa issue, working whilst on student visa and also good places to study Mandarin would be very much appreciated.
