Teacher feedback is how we improve.


Shane English School Taiwan currently takes on over 100 new teachers each year, and we aim to make it a memorable experience for each and every teacher who joins our team. We routinely ask our teachers for feedback on their experience at Shane to find where we can improve to make sure you have nothing but good memories, starting from the moment you apply right up until you move on to your next exciting chapter.

- Samantha, August 2020 (SEST, Taipei)



I chose Shane due to the clarity of information and reputation.


- Nicola, August 2020 (SEST, Taipei)



The application process was extremely easy - I was hired very quickly. I had a mutual contact working at the school which gave me an advantage, and my boss helped me through the visa process.


- Lyn, August 2020 (SEST, Taipei)



My recruiter has been receptive, responsive, clear and approachable throughout the process.


- George, February 2020 (SEST, Taipei)



Our recruiters are all former teachers who have first-hand experience of what it's like to make the move to teach in Taiwan.



Teacher Training is designed to leave new teachers feeling fully prepared to start their first class.


What did our recent teachers think of Training Week?


Seems like a well organised company. Teachers are given great training and support.


- Leandra, August 2020 (SEST, Tainan)


To see how teachers teach in ‘real life’ was very useful, and to see how teachers react and handle various situations was also incredibly helpful.


- Jassie, August 2020 (SEST, Taipei)


I liked having parts of the lesson broken down and the trainers demoing scoring systems and games as part of their way of teaching us. This gave me a lot of good tools for use in the future.


- Jack, March 2020 (SEST, Zhunan)


The value of the observations was very good. I observed three teachers who were all great and had different teaching styles. Loads of exposure to games, activities, scoring setups, etc.


- George, February 2020 (SEST, Taipei)


The module I found most useful was Phonics. It’s something I’d seen in my TEFL, but having a focussed day on it really helped me understand how it should be taught and anticipate the challenges students might face.


- Katie, February 2020 (SEST, Taipei)



Teacher Training is administered by our team of Directors of Studies who all have years of classroom experience teaching at Shane English School Taiwan.



Our aim if for all teachers to look back fondly on an awesome experience teaching in Taiwan.


From a long-term teacher moving on to new things.


My time with working for Shane English and living in Taiwan has been wonderful!


This was my first experience in Asia, and while the first two weeks were overwhelming, Taipei quickly felt like home. When I arrived in Taiwan, Shane arranged my taxi from the airport, my paperwork, and a hotel, so the transition to live in Taiwan was seamless.


Within the first week, my roommate and I asked head office to assist our housing process and they helped us find and reach out to five landlords. We found the perfect apartment within a few days!


Once we began training, which was intense, but necessary, I felt equipped to handle a classroom without having had much classroom teaching experience prior.


Since my arrival a year ago, I have grown so much as a teacher with the help of my school’s faculty and head office. Teaching has become second nature and I will miss the bonds I formed with the children I taught deeply!


Beyond teaching, Taiwan is an unbelievable place to live. I feel lucky that I get to wake up here every day. The city has an incredible mix of ancient and modern, the food is astounding and inexpensive, the people are so kind, and the access to nature is unparalleled.


If you are looking for a teaching job with a great training program and a lot of assistance in terms of the content you teach and the way you teach it, Shane is a great company to work for.
