Question: I want to find out more about teaching English in Taiwan!
A: Hi there,
Thanks for checking out FirstStep.me!
The TEFL route seems a popular route as a way of doing a structured gap year for individuals from around the world. The requirements range from having a bachelor's degree, being a fluent English speaker or having a TEFL qualification.
We had a look and there are a lot of websites out there about teaching English as a foreign language especially in Asian specific countries. There seems to be a number of schools and organisations that actually do the placements of individuals into English teaching roles, Taiwan has several options. The key is too find a legitimate setup that offers individuals a safe and reputable job offering. One particular website and setup we found that got our attention is HESS International: http://www.hess.com.tw
Wikipedia has more on TEFL
