What is the most relaxed Alternative Service environment?

Postby charmander » 18 Feb 2014, 15:13

Hello,

I'm considering going through with my military service in Taiwan, however I run a business that I need to spend at least 3 hours on every day.

What Alternative Services can I choose that will give me the most freedom and independence with my time?

Would teaching English in a small, rural town be feasible?

Thanks

I would guess working at a national park or scenic area tourism desk as the token english speaker.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

You can request such as posting (so I have heard from guys at such posts) but it's not guaranteed. However with your level of English you should have a good chance.

Do you know if it'll be possible to work on my business on the job? The only problem I can see happening is them assigning me grunt work (which seems like the culture here in Taiwan for entry level workers). With grunt work, I'll never be able to have the free time to work on my own business.

No idea. Sorry. Why not just go out and ask? I'm pretty sure even Yangming Shan has a guy or two doing alternate service.
