My name is Kristina and I'm seriously considering teaching in Taiwan, perhaps even next year. However, I would like to get some feedback from anyone willing to give it before I start getting my hopes up. Independent online research into the place can only get me so far. Hearing from someone who has "been there, done that," would be invaluable to me. I am currently learning Mandarin Chinese (reading and writing) purely as a hobby, but I would like to turn that seemingly meaningless hobby - because I'm currently in South Korea - into a workable skill useful in everyday life. Please offer me any advice you feel would help. Thank you.
