nov photo challenge

What are the most beautiful, interesting, quirky sights you've seen where you live? During the month of November, we invited our teachers to participate in a photo challenge to share their favourite things about teaching in Taiwan. They were asked to share a photo and complete the prompt "The best thing about teaching in Taiwan is..." 

The photos were shared on our Facebook and Instagram, and followers were invited to support our teachers by liking their favourite photos. We were especially impressed by the stunning landscapes that were shared with us!

Taiwan is truly a beautiful place to live and teach, and we loved seeing the unique perspectives represented by our teachers. 

Thank you to the teachers who participated in this challenge, and to all those who supported by voting.

“The best thing about teaching in Taiwan is being able to enjoy the natural beauty of the island. With just a short commute out of the city (and sometimes not even that!), you can soak in breathtaking sights such as this one of the sunset kissing lush green mountains. It's a refreshing way to relax and recharge after a full week of teaching. You will also literally "soak in" sweat... but hiking up to see this surreal view is worth every drop.”

 

Honourable Mention: Daniel Alfaro

"I think the best part about teaching in Taiwan is being able to live out and experience a rich culture which blends and brings the best out of both traditional values and progressive mindsets. A place where we enjoy great food, friendly people, and the freedom to discover who we are."
