Positions in Taiwan rarely come with accommodation provided for you. But don’t fear, this is partly a result of how easy it is to actually find accommodation.
There’s plenty of great Facebook groups to find apartments with other teachers, and sites for finding private places for yourself. We’re happy to show our TEFL course graduates the ropes when it comes to finding apartments in Taiwan, and in some situations our team on the ground in Taipei may be able to accompany you to view apartments and help negotiate your contracts.
Apartments can be rented from NT$8,000-$20,000, with the upper scale often including a gym, and perhaps even a pool during the summer months. When you’re earning in the region of NT$50,000-$70,000 per month there’s plenty leftover after paying for your accommodation.
