As a newbie, I’ve been reading and enjoying the community here for a few months. I’ve finally ended my career of lurking and joined the forum here.
I’ve taught ESL for over a year now in the U.S.A. Next year I hope to teach ESL in Taiwan and pay off student loans. Is there any chance some of you could help by giving me estimates of monthly living expenses based on your area of Taiwan (north/south, urban/suburbs)?
My wife and I have 2 small children and want to live very frugally in Taiwan. We would eat local food only and MAYBE opt out of AC if we can sweat it out.
Any guesses as to low, mid, and high estimates of monthly living expenses for a family of 4 in Taiwan? How about an informal survey here?
