A South African friend was recently advised by his school that he’d have to get his University degree verified by the Authorities concerned in order to teach English in Taiwan.
I was surprised as I’d read, on this website, I think, that the Dept. of Education didn’t require Degrees to be accredited for English teachers.
I’ve also heard that all nationalities will have to do this- mere hearsay? So far, that’s all it is, to me.
I have some concern now, because my degree comes from a distance-learning University, and the concept of distance learning is perhaps still somewhat new, although I’ve also taken several Microsoft exams this way, and it’s a fine way to learn. But as to whether it’s accepted here in Taiwan, I don’t know, and I’m sure I don’t make the rules!! . So, if there’s anyone out there who knows something for sure, please post what you know, and thanks in advance!
