We need someone in June, 2007!

Thinking of teaching in Taiwan? Here's what you need to know!

ABC American School is located in Fengyuan on the outskirts of Taichung City with a great mountain view.  It's a brand-new school (we relocated after the 921 earthquake) with modern facilities, well-designed programs and a cooperative team environment. We offer you a great work environment and excellent salary and benefits. Our basic requirements are that you are native English speaker, have an outgoing personality and interact well with children and/or adults. It is also important that you have a basic respect for the laws and culture here in Taiwan and adapt well to new experiences and lifestyles. 
You will be teaching children, teenagers and adults at a private language school. Of course, kids like teachers who are active, outgoing and energetic. Adults like patient teachers with a sense of humor and an understanding of the difficulties of language acquisition in a foreign environment. Schools like teachers that can lead kids in games and activities, keep students amused and interested, and work well with other teachers and the school. You can make English teaching your career or think of it as a chance to experience a unique and fascinating culture.

The basic requirement for legal employment in Taiwan is a University degree. Without a degree, we will not be able to apply for a work visa for you.
