The site of Chris’s was a total waste of time.
I still think Michael Turton’s site has the best info.
Wish there was a site like Chris’s that really shared alot of infoa about
peoples’ experiences, good and bad, at specific schools in Taiwan, but
probably people feel it is too dangerous to put some things on the
www.bogglesworld.com for teaching material.

Convieniently located across the street from the Police station where you handle visas in Taipei on ZhongHua Road. If you are facing the police station on ZhongHua road, it’s to your left. You will see an overpass for pedestrians that goes to a school. The tax adminstration is by the school. If you see a string of stereo and security camera shops as you walk, then you are almost there.

Yes. I have been investigated once already. Someone who didn’t like some remark I made on website got his buddy inside the Council on Labor Affairs to investigate my site for “recruiting teachers without a license.” I told them bluntly that they were abusing their power and that the website is located in the US where they had no jurisdiction, and that the website expressly said that I won’t help people find jobs. They didn’t contact me after that.
Still, I have rewritten the site to make it even more removed, so that nobody could argue that I was advocating tax fraud or similar. I think in a society like this where people sue each other promiscuously, and send thugs when they lose, open criticism of real people is a really bad idea, so I don’t use any names on my website.
Here is a site that is definitely worth a look.
It has the most extensive list of schools in Taiwan that I have ever seen, as well as a school blacklist. Oh, and jobs as well.
Is there a taiwan bloglist anywhere?
This may not be exactly what you are looking for but there are a number of Taiwan based personal blogs listed here.
yeah! Thanks! That looks great!
For finding 1 on 1 jobs:
My blogroll lists around 150 Taiwan blogs, in two groups.

It is a quite new site for teachers and schools in Taiwan.
Why not check out the 2 minute and 52 second video of live teaching in Taiwan. It is really awesome, and maybe it can give you some ideas for what to do in your own classes. I almost forgot to post the web address, but here it is anyway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5IP0in1Ze0.
What happened to bogglesworld.com. It used to be this great resource for English teachers and now it is some kind of crappy directory? Any one know where the old site has gone?
It was alright a week ago. Maybe they forgot to pay their hosting fees.
It’s still gone off the radar. I’d been following a series of lesson plans they had in the writers workshop. I’d done two of five. My panic was at white heat when I went to download the next lesson plan 30 minutes before my class only to find:
The best-laid plans o’ mice an’ men
Gang aft a-gley,
An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
For promised joy.
