With a high quality of life, high pay scale ( for English teachers ) and a low cost of living, Taiwan is beginning to capture the worlds attention. Great healthcare, and a super safe environment all make Taiwan a great choice for living abroad. A true Democracy that allows for freedom of religion and thought leads expats and locals to experience a high happiness rating. US grocers like Costco make the adjustment easier to handle. And setting up a comfy home base is a breeze thanks to IKEA. Possibly you could land a job with Corning or DuPont if teaching is not your thing, or you may want to finish your college degree or study Mandarin Chinese at one of the many learning institutions here. Many offer scholarships and programs to help foreigners study abroad.
