This book will help you go from not knowing anything about Taiwan (or even teaching) to finding the perfect ESL job and living the dream life in Taiwan. The eBook contains practical, easy to understand guidelines on the following topics:
Believe me when I say there's even more useful information to be found in my book. From the moment you apply for your visa, to the day you'll receive your first paycheck - everything is covered! This handbook will be there to help you every step of the way. You won't have to ask yourself: "Now what am I supposed to do?"
Ugo, I found your book through your website and I bought it as soon as
I saw that it included a directory of schools in Taipei. VERY helpful,
although I wish you'd have included more places in the Banqiao area.
(That's where I've lived for the past 6 years.) Anyway, overall your
guide really lives up to its name. Congratulations on such a fine piece
of research. It's very informative and detailed. I'm just pissed off I
didn't think about writing this kind of book myself. I got some friends
from back home who are thinking about coming to Taiwan to teach
English. I'll make sure to tell them about your ebook. Don't worry, I
won't give them my copy.

Which visa do you need to look for work in Taiwan?
What are the requirements?
How can you get a one-year multiple-entry visa?

Ugo, Just wanted to say a massive thanks for all the information you've
given me about the visa for Taiwan. I wrote a letter to the people at
the embassy and everything went fine, just like you said on your
website. I got a multiple-entry 1 year visa. Your recommendations were
really valuable. The information you gave me was more than sufficient.
Thanks again for putting together such a great resource.

That's right! If you don't like this guide, or if you realize it's not for you, I'll send you a quick refund. No questions asked! The reason I can afford to give you a 100% money-back guarantee is because Teach English in Taiwan is an eBook, a PDF file.

Well, I'm going one step further, because I am so confident you won't want a refund or to make sure that you won't lose a cent if you do want your money back. If you ever want a refund, I will give you your full money back and I'll add USD$1 on top of that.
book is essential for anyone thinking about teaching English in Taiwan.
From advice strategies on getting your visa in order, to settling in
and teaching once you've arrived; Teach English in Taiwan, is
an ESL teacher's dream come true. Even for those already in Taiwan,
this book is an excellent resource guide. I highly recommend it to
anyone considering teaching in Taiwan, and to those already on the
island, who are looking to make the most out of their time here.

The most convenient way to find
Finding schools in Taiwan can be very frustrating if you can't read Chinese. But with the directory, finding them is a breeze! To know where a school is, you can simply paste the Chinese address in Google Maps. From there, you can find the exact location and even see the school and its surrounding with Google's Street View feature. You can then print the map and the address to show to a taxi driver.
This directory alone is worth the price of the eBook. One of the biggest problems with finding places to teach in Taiwan, is that most schools don't advertise online, so there's absolutely no way for you to find them if you can't read Chinese. With the directory, you'll have access to over 600 English schools in Taipei, Kaohsiung, Taichung, Tainan, Hsinchu, Taoyuan, and many, many other cities around Taiwan. It makes your life so much easier.
| Hi Ugo! I am now teaching English in Banqiao, just
wanted to thank you for the book again, it helped me a lot to get
everything organized. Everything in your guide was spot on, every
detail was helpful. I particularly liked the details about getting the
ARC and the directory. Your directory... so helpful! I'm not working at
one of the schools you listed in it but it got me started, you know, to
contact schools. Anyway it's all good what you put in there, can't
believe you sell it that cheap. Ask for more. It's worth more than 29.
I look forward to reading your book about Taipei. Let's keep in touch.
Regards, Arthur, Aurora USA
have been in Taiwan for 8 years now. I first came to visit a friend,
and I just never made it back to Canada. I'm now married to a beautiful
Taiwanese, and we're going to be parents soon. Taiwan has so much to
offer, and it's a great base to travel around Asia. This book is by far
the best resource you can find if you're planning to teach in Taiwan. Mathieu Ducharme, Canada

Here are some questions I often get about teaching English and living in Taiwan:
Q1 - I heard that the market is completely saturated and it is really hard, if not impossible, to find a job as an English teacher in Taiwan these days. What do you think?
The market is NOT saturated. It is more competitive than in the past, that's for sure. There are more foreigners who come to Taiwan to teach English than before. But the one thing that you must understand is that parents still badly want their kids to learn English and they still have the money to send them to private English schools.
The real problem will never be about competition.
You can start to seriously worry about finding teaching jobs in Taiwan the day you will read that the country's economy is in deep trouble (recession). If newspapers' headlines start announcing massive layoffs at high-tech Taiwanese companies, that's real trouble. The only tangible threat to the ESL job market in Taiwan is a recession. Period. Competition is a joke if you know how to look and act professionally.
Q2 - You make it sound too good! Do you just say these things to sell more ebooks?
Everything that I write on this website comes from first-hand experience or is directly related to stories I've heard from people I've met. I am always on the move around the island and I meet fabulous people all the time that are living the dream life in Taiwan. Most of them started their lives on Formosa as English teachers and many of them have been teachers for more than 20 years. Some of them I meet and they tell me they've only been here for a couple of months. I rarely meet people who dislike Taiwan. I have seldom encountered folks who have found it hard to get work. I am not the only one who is as optimistic about Taiwan like that. If the truth can help my sales go up - good! I am always doing my best to be as objective as possible. I'm not here to mislead anyone. The 570 pages published on this website should prove this. I am simply passionate about the place!
Q3 - I am 60 years old, can I still find work in Taiwan? Am I too old?
I have friends who are in their 70s who still teach English at kindergartens. If it's possible for them, I believe it's possible for anyone who has the energy, patience, dedication, and perseverence required.
Q4 - I am from Kenya, I have a university degree and my English is perfect. Will Taiwanese school owners hire me?
Chinese and Taiwanese people have racist attitudes. Period. They will point at people of different color and say: "Oh! Look, he's American, he's got a long nose and he's hairy like a monkey.", or "Look at the black guy, mom!" My dad would have smacked me behind the head if I would have said something like that in Canada, but things are different here...
Chinese people have a strong obsession with white skin. Taiwanese bosses prefer to hire westerners at their schools. The vast majority of English teachers in Taiwan are from Canada, the States, England, Australia, South Africa, and European countries.
That being said, I have friends who are from Ghana, Burkina Fasso, and Kenya, who live and work as English teachers in Taiwan. Everything is possible if you decide it is!
Q5 - I don't have a university degree? Can I still teach ESL in Taiwan?
You need to have a university degree to be eligible for the ARC (work permit). Teaching English in Taiwan without a work permit is illegal. You can be fined and deported for working in Taiwan without an ARC.
Q6 - I've sent my resume to lots of schools, but haven't had any response yet? What should I do?
First of all, don't just send your resume. If you are in Taiwan deliver your CV in person and try to make an outstanding first impression with whoever takes it at the school. Show that you have a lot of energy and that you are friendly. Do your best to say a compliment, such as: "Your school is very beautiful!" Smile and act enthusiastically! Don't just drop it and leave. Ask some questions, show that you're absolutely in love with English teaching and kids.
Call them back to let them know you're available if they ever need a substitute or even help with their curriculum, or marketing. One girl told me she got hired as soon as she mentioned to a school owner that she could take pictures of the students and the school and build a blog in English. Of course she got the job! Think outside of the box!
By the way, it is said that resumes are dead! The resumes of the future will be more like mini-blogs that both show personal stuff, as well as your working experience and educational background.
