I’m making preparations to move to Taiwan hopefully in June. I have a BA in English and a TEFL certificate and I’ll be seeking a teaching position.
I’ve been reading that Taipei not only has a higher cost of living, but that beginning teachers are paid less there as well. Can anyone confirm this?
After hearing those facts I had decided to try Taichung instead. However, the mass transit situation and the smaller foreigner support base in Taichung give me pause. I don’t know if higher wages are worth having to risk my life getting from place to place on a scooter!
Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated.
