Taiwan is a country of contrast, where cutting edge modern conveniences lie below a traditional culture that remains strong today.

The fee you pay to teach in Taiwan goes to our 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, The GeoVisions Foundation. The program donation for this experience covers our costs of local screening of potential host schools in Taiwan; assisting you with the process of compiling the documents you will need to collect for a guaranteed job and the correct visa; and assistance in Taiwan during your entire stay to make sure what you have agreed to is what really happens. This provides you a great deal of security and a social base to grow and enjoy your time in Taiwan. If you are from the US, the fee also includes your travel and medical insurance.
We provide 24/7 emergency service, supported by real people. You are supported from the moment you contact us to the time you return … and beyond, through our active Alumni Community. Be sure to speak to your tax preparer to see if any of these fees can be deducted as a charitable donation. Also, ask your tax preparer about moving costs and if you can deduct those as well.
This is teaching position in Taiwan that involves teaching English in a real classroom in a real school. You will earn a full time teaching salary.
A minimum monthly salary of $1,680 is guaranteed, even if you teach the minimum of hours. You will earn up to $2,000 USD / month and you can earn much more. For those willing to teach extra hours, the monthly salary can increase substantially.
Assistance in finding accommodation is included, but teachers pay their own rent. Rent is generally between USD $250 and $400 per month, exclusive of electricity and water (which is generally quite affordable). In some instances Internet is provided in accommodation costs, in other instances it must be purchased separately.
Teachers are awarded an accredited TEFL Certificate at the end of their first year. This encompasses initial training, branch training, 1, 3, and 6-month follow-up trainings, and a minimum of 800 hours of practicum teaching. This TEFL training is FREE.
You will receive 15 paid public holidays and another 10 paid vacation days, based on the schools’ protocol.
Over the years we have met teachers who have had horrible experiences when they think they are going into a fantastic overseas teaching job only to find out they are not going to a real school, but a corporate school and not a true International school. They have been caught in a signed contract without having visited the school or met the administrators. Where do they turn without a support team who’s only job is to look out for you?
At GeoVisions, we have pre-screened the school and the position and in most cases, we have placed teachers at that school before. We make sure you’re being paid the highest thank you gift from the school as possible. We provide a formal orientation, starting when we pick you up at the airport. You will meet other teachers just like you the day you arrive. Start enjoying the GeoVisions safety net immediately. We help you with your visa, your formal documents and we make sure your new school is ready to receive you. In fact, if your placement doesn’t work out, we work to move you to another school or another part of China.
21-45 years of age is the current limit. If you are over 45, give us a call. Sometimes we can place you … it just takes longer.
Many of the teach abroad programs GeoVisions operates pay more than enough to take care of your student loans. Some pay enough to live comfortably, but depending on your monthly loan payment, it could be close.
GeoVisions will work with you to provide official documents from your school and from GeoVisions. But ultimately, it's going to come down to the loan provider to make the final determination.
Many participants end up putting their loans on forbearance if their salary doesn't leave them enough funds to cover their loans.
