I’ve taken a position with Shane School of English in Taiwan, and will arrive in Taipei for training in three weeks. It’s my first time in Taiwan, and will also be my first time teaching English, though I have a BA in English and a TEFL certificate. I’ll be teaching at three schools in Changhua City, Yuanlin and Homei. I know this is a bit much to ask, but does anyone on the forums have experience with Shane in Changhua, or happen to be teaching with them currently? If so, what are your experiences with Shane and Changhua generally? I know that’s probably very general, but any and all advice and feedback would be gratefully appreciated.
I’ve done a lot of research on Taiwan, but I’m still uncomfortably aware I don’t know as much as I’d like. I really want to make a good impression in this, my first TEFL job, and would appreciate anything people have to say, as it would be a great help. Thank you.
