English teacher training and orientation to sharpen your skills



With an abundance of foreign English teacher recruitment experience, Teach Taiwan tailors teacher orientation, teacher training, and on the job training for every step of the way to help you adapt to a new workplace and culture.

To make our training courses more efficient and helpful, Teach Taiwan selects experienced trainers, most of which are foreign teachers that are very familiar with what it’s like to start a new position in a new country. They are also very familiar with Taiwan's educational environment and Taiwan culture. These trainers are here to provide you with everything you will need and want as you’re embarking on a new adventure.

The teacher training courses cover practical issues and potential challenges during teaching such as Taiwanese work culture, students’ characteristics, social expectations, the content of English teaching materials, skills of leading a class, the strategy of co-teaching, and basic Mandarin Chinese communication abilities.
