Taiwan is located Eastern Asia, islands bordering the East China Sea, Philippine Sea, South China Sea, and Taiwan Strait, north of the Philippines, off the south-eastern coast of China. Taiwan is famous as one of East Asia’s economic “Tigers.” It is a major investor throughout Southeast Asia and so the demand for English teachers is very high in Taiwan.

It’s no longer a secret that Taiwan offers some of the best opportunities to teach English in Asia. Many choose Taiwan for its low cost of living and availability of high paying jobs (that’s a win win!). Living in Taiwan is also a great opportunity to study Chinese while immersing yourself in Taiwan’s unique combination of urban progression and traditional Chinese culture. Many teachers who have also taught in South Korea or China all agree that Taiwan offers the best standard of living for English teachers in Asia.
