Teach English at Shane English School Taiwan

Our aim is to provide fun and productive English lessons to our students of all ages, abilities, and levels. All Shane schools in Taiwan place a great emphasis on providing an excellent quality, excellent value, and caring service to our students. A high proportion of these students join through word-of-mouth recommendations and as a result of observing or participating in classes on a trial or demonstration basis. 

Expect a lot of hard work but also expect a lot of fun, some new friends and a host of memorable experiences. Moreover, life and work get easier the longer you stay, and many of our teachers end up staying for several years. Be open-minded and you will find the experience even more rewarding!

There are many great reasons to teach English here with us in Taiwan. Have a look at our teacher testimonials to see why these teachers chose Shane.

Here are some of the main reasons why teachers choose us:

Structured Materials

All courses have complete course guides and syllabus guides. This takes pressure off teachers, and frees them to concentrate on how to teach, rather than worrying about what to teach.


Student Variation

Teachers may teach a variety of students of all ages and abilities (from kindergartners to adults) both in group classes and one-on-one.


Classroom Support

Larger classes have teaching assistants to help with the marking of homework, monitoring of students, and classroom management.


Teacher Welfare

We understand that moving abroad and getting established in a new country can be daunting and initially a drain on your finances. So we offer a guaranteed salary for the first 5 months to ensure that teachers have enough to get by. When you arrive we will pick you up from the airport and take you to a hotel. Also, our staff will help you to find an apartment.


Professional Development

Teacher development is important for teachers, both new and experienced. This is why we provide a full week of Young Learners training to all teachers. Training is conducted by Western academic managers, although current teachers can volunteer to conduct teaching training as part of the Teacher Development Scheme. There are senior teachers and academic managers always available to offer help, advice, and ongoing training and support.


Career Development

There are always opportunities for career development at Shane, both in Taiwan and beyond. It is not uncommon for our teachers to stay with us beyond their initial contract, either electing to stay at their current school, transferring to another city or transferring to Shane schools in another country! Many of our teachers go on to become senior teachers and academic managers in Taiwan and elsewhere. If you are ambitious and want to make a career out of teaching then Shane is the perfect environment for you.


Diverse Locations

We have schools in all the major cities of Taiwan, and everywhere in between. Teachers choose the area they want to be in, so whether you are into the city life or rural idyll, no doubt we have the right location for you.
