Celebrate an Arabian Christmas with Reach to Teach at Playing Lounge Bar

Celebrate an Arabian Christmas with Reach to Teach at Playing Lounge Bar

Playing Lounge Bar is known as the best place in Taiwan for shishas, hookahs, belly dance, cocktails, and fine food. Who needs Christmas movies, candy canes, and holiday caroling? I’d rather be with you all, cozying up at this chic bar over food, cocktails, and a belly dancing show! I can’t think of a better way to get in the Christmas spirit—Taiwan style. Some of the food options include pizza, chicken wings, chicken fingers, wraps, etc. The room can only accommodate 25 of us, so RSVP early to secure your spot! Email me at mary@reachtoteachrecruiting.com or respond to the Facebook event. Hope you will all join us for a RTT night out and remember to dress to impress! Let’s have some fun.

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan October BBQ Event

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan October BBQ Event

Located among a myriad of Japanese restaurants, Hinomai Yakiniku was an awesome choice for our October Reach to Teach event! Unlike many restaurants, you have to take your shoes off before sitting down at your table. Our table was designed in traditional Japanese fashion on a raised platform with low ceilings; we had to crouch while walking to get there and sit down. The atmosphere was cozy, with seven of us sharing two BBQ’s and plate after plate of delicious beef, pork, shrimp, vegetables, and more. And of course, the all-you-can-drink keg of beer wasn’t bad either 🙂 After dinner, Carrie and John took us to a cute little iced drink stand in the Dunhua area. If you’re ever in the mood for a spiked Slurpee, this is the place you should go. After that, we walked to On Tap to meet up with more RTT friends waiting for us in the game room. I want to thank everyone who showed up;  I had a lot of fun! There will not be a November event, but we are planning a Christmas event for the beginning of December. Look out for details on Facebook! Cheers, Mary

TEFL Q&A: Do I Need a TEFL to Teach with EPIK in South Korea?

TEFL Q&A: Do I Need a TEFL to Teach with EPIK in South Korea?
Flickr Photo by cdnsue For the past two decades, South Korea has been one of the top destinations in the world for ESL teachers. In addition to offering one of the highest salaries in the business, schools in South Korea offer free housing, free flights, and insurance benefits, among other perks. Over the past year, Asian ESL destinations such as Taiwan and China have been moving towards making a TEFL certification mandatory in their hiring practices. A large number of schools in Taiwan these days are looking for teachers with experience and/or a TEFL certification. Meanwhile, the Chinese government has cracked down on requirements for teachers bound for first-tier cities like Shanghai and Beijing by requesting that teachers be 24 years of age, have a TEFL certification and two years of experience post-graduation, one of which must be formal teaching experience. While it is still possible to find employment in Shanghai and Beijing, it’s likely that teachers that do not meet these requirements are not teaching on a proper working Z visa. This fall, the Korean government made some major changes to their EPIK program, a program that hires ESL teachers for Korean public schools across the country. Teachers with [...]Read More

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan Day Trip to Wulai

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan Day Trip to Wulai

I want to give a BIG thank you to everyone who showed up to the RTT September event; I couldn’t have asked for a better turnout! The day began with over 20 of us lined up to grab the bus to Wulai. Since there were so many of us we couldn’t fit on the first bus and had to wait to get the next one. Luckily we all fit on the second bus, but had to stand the entire forty minute journey with jerky turns and winding roads.   Stepping of the bumpy bus was a relief, but I found many people asking me, “What do we do now?” I should have warned everyone that this was my first time in Wulai as well, so I was just as clueless as everyone else on where to start. I was saved by the maps and signs guiding novice travelers where to go. The town itself is quaint and charming, surrounded by beautiful mountain views. However, the main road in town is filled with tourist traps—snacks, trinkets, and goodies—but we quickly passed through trying to catch a glimpse of the famous waterfall. Once we made the twenty minute trek uphill to the […]
