This Taipei Times article yesterday has gopt me confused:
taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/ … /26/192460
Now I thought everyone knew that (for a foreigner) to teach legally in Taiwan you must have a passport and degree from one of the few western English-speaking countries.
Now this article is saying stuff like “under the Employment Services Act, the nationalities of English teachers are not profiled by law in Taiwan. Can the MOE halt the import of Filipinos and Indians to teach English in Taiwan?” and "the MOE has no grounds on which to oppose the hiring of English teachers from the Philippines and India " also “It’s not up to the MOE to decide whether private cram schools can recruit teachers from these two countries, as these teachers are subject to the Supplementary Education Law”
Then how come Dutch, Swedis, Israeli etc etc teachers with excellent English have never been allowed to teach here?
What the hell’s going on?
