Ideally I was hoping to find a job before arriving in Taiwan I've applied online through quite a few teaching jobs and have had no replies,
I've completed a degree and just recently finished online TEFL course, I can also speak read and write basic Chinese....I seriously don't know what else to.
I do hope the main obstacle its not the fact I'm Chinese by heritage....... as I've heard so many stories about foreign born Chinese being discriminated or undervalued whilst teaching English in Taiwan.....
Maybe I should fly to Taiwan and actually continue the job hunt there, could anyone tell me if doing this would make a difference in the job hunt?
Any advice or information would be much appreciated
Thanks in advance
I'm terribly sorry to say this but do UK people actually write like this (commas as sentence separators)?
I guess American English needs to change
