[quote=“iamchewy”]What are the requirements for Taiwanese citizens teaching ESL in Taiwan? I’ve gone through the plethora of advice for foreign nationals but I was wondering if anyone could be kind enough to expound upon the intricacies of teaching ESL as a citizen of ROC.
Although I’m a naturalized US citizen, I was born in Taiwan, and, from what I gathered, this appoints me to the status of a Type 2 or “Overseas Chinese” status citizen. I’m fluent in English and I do not yet have a bachelor’s degree. Would I be eligible to teach English in Taiwan?[/quote]
Yes and No.
Yes, you can teach English at any non-public school that will hire you. (I am not clear on the visa status for “overseas chinese”. But if you need a work permit through a visa…you cant get one without a degree to teach.)
No, you can’t teach at any public school Elementary to University without degrees, etc.
Taiwanese who teach get paid squat.
Foreigners who teach get paid a lot more. You however are Taiwanese by birth. Because you “look” like a local it will be hard for you to find a teaching job that pays what white feriners make. There are specialized schools that ask for ABC etc, you can try those. I hear the pay is just a bit below the average white feriner salary.
