I am thankful for choices, particularly regarding employment. As I mentioned yesterday, a contact I made suggested Taiwan as a potential location for teaching English, especially since I have some (limited) ability with Mandarin. And as mentioned yesterday, one of my concerns is my health care. Taiwan is a much better option than the PRC in that regard. Probably not as good as Korea, but I’m still just now getting into the research, so I really don’t have much data to make a solid opinion yet.
I just wish I had discovered the TEFL industry earlier in life. What an awesome lifestyle!
