I have been aggressively looking for a job in Taiwan. I have had a couple offers already. The one offer I am seriously considering is the following
The location in Tainan and the school has a pretty good reputation ( many of the teachers have been there for a long time....some as long as 12-13 years) The hours are M-F, 9-4:30. Within these hours, there are only 4.5 hours of actual classroom time a day. There is one large lunch break during the day for teachers, and 40 minutes of office time in the morning for preparation. The starting salary I have been offered is 57,000 a month. There are 4 weeks of paid vacation per year. Is this worth it for nearly 40 hours a week spent at the school? I know that Tainan is a much cheaper city to live in, so it might be expected that salaries are a little lower. Do you think I will realistically have time to study Chinese? Is this job worth it for daytime hours?
My credentials are as follows: 24 year old American male with a B.A. I have two years experience teaching children, but only one on one (never in a classroom).
I would appreciate any advice!
