Expats in Taiwan have a distinct lifestyle, thanks to an interesting mix of western business culture and ancient Chinese traditions that permeate daily life.

If you live in one of the country’s modern cities it allows you access to first-class public transport and healthcare systems. Taiwan has one of the world’s highest population densities, although you’re never far from the peace and quiet of its beautiful mountains – so sidestepping the crowds is easy.

The central mountain range which runs the length of the main island of Taiwan, divides the east and west of the island and dominating two-thirds of the land surface. The coastal plains of the west coast are home to about 80 percent of Taiwan’s population. Overlying the tropical and subtropical zones, Taiwan sports a tropical climate with a temperate climate in the north-land and the mountainous regions. Taiwan’s location is also subject to annual typhoons, which occur between the months of July and October. These consist of strong winds and heavy rain.

Most people in Taiwan have traditional values based on Confucianism, which include the principles of good conduct, practical wisdom, and proper social relationships. Values are changing, especially in urban areas. Since industrialization, women enjoy greater freedom and a higher social status, individual creativity is regarded as equally important as social conformity. English Teachers will find working with Taiwanese children a pleasure as they are attentive and hard working.

With its diverse and adventurous landscape, rich heritage, unique traditions and infamous night market scene, Taiwan offers a plethora of things to discover for a small green island.

This is yet another helpful lesson. I appreciated the many samples of materials that were included, and the honesty about the pros and cons of using already established textbooks. Honestly, I hate how much textbooks cost when our students are already paying so much for their education, so I tend to use open source information, but I still do use smaller, less expensive textbooks as well.This unit taught me the equal importance of reading and listening. They are the receptive skills . I have learnt te different reasons for reading and listening-whether it is for purpose or for entertaintment. How complex this is and as everybody has got pre -existing knowledge we might make different conclusions-It is very important to bear this in mind while teaching receptive skills.
