Outside the classroom

Taiwan, the beautiful island, has stayed true to its ancient Asian roots while absorbing influences from many other countries, namely Japan, Polynesia, Holland and Portugal.

Bask in bubbling geothermal springs, launch a lantern into the stars during the Pingxi sky lantern festival, celebrate New Years Eve in Tapiei 101 blinded by 24,000 fireworks and follow the butterflies (600,000 migrate to southern Taiwan for the winter)!

During your vacation weeks why not hop on a cheap flight to nearby countries such as China, Japan and Vietnam! You and your future TEFL friends will create stories that you’ll retell for a lifetime. Teach English in Taiwan with the TEFL institute of Ireland today!
