After living one, two, even three years in Taiwan, our teachers have a weath of knowledge and experience to share. We asked some of our veteran teachers to tell us about their experience living and teaching in Taiwan, including the best parts, the hardest things to adjust to, and what advice they have for incoming teachers.

Earlier this year, we welcomed new teacher Gillian Wall to visit us in Taiwan. In this post, Gillian shares about her personal experience living and travelling abroad, comparing her experience and impressions of different places in Asia. 

 

Considering teaching abroad? Why Taiwan? We asked some of our Canadian teachers and recent university graduates to share about their experience teaching Foresight's Ontario-based ESL program, and why they made the decision to teach in Taiwan.

Ten years later, I haven’t forgotten the packing drama of the first time I moved abroad. The night before my flight, I was up late, clothes, books, and other miscellaneous items strewn across the floor, debating what to bring and what to leave behind. My destination felt so far, a year felt so long, and two suitcases felt like so little. Item by item, I made cuts, trying to guess what I could and could not live without. My suitcases, brand new and ready for my first international flight, were packed to the max with things that I later found out I really didn’t need to bring.

Editor's note: While there are many different train, bus, and air routes for destinations around Taiwan, this article focusses on public transportation within Taipei City.

 

This past June, I was given the opportunity to visit Taiwan with Foresight I.E.C. after winning their Free Flight to Taipei Contest. I was ecstatic to learn that I had won and was eager to ask FIEC many, many questions (which they were kind enough to answer and even Skype with me multiple times before going). Although I had learned about FIEC at my school's University Career Fair earlier this year, I had very little prior knowledge about Taiwan before going. That being said, once I arrived in Taiwan, I was immediately impressed by Taipei’s extremely organized and well thought-out transportation system.

 

To all of our new teachers, welcome to the team! Congratulations on beginning this great adventure of teaching ESL abroad and joining us to make a difference in Taiwan. And to all of our returning teachers, welcome back!

During our 2019 recruitment season, while our outstanding team of recruitment principals visited university career fairs across Canada, we hosted a Free Trip to Taiwan contest for candidates who visited our booth and left us a resume. The purpose of the giveaway was to give one new teacher a sample experience of living and teaching abroad, as well as to promote teaching in Taiwan. The contest was held across over a dozen universities across Canada with over 300 applicants.
