Date: 02 March 2020
Time: 10:00

Booking and Further Information

Event is suitable for:

  • Students and alumni interested in teaching English abroad
  • Students and alumni interested to work in Taiwan


Join us for this interactive session to learn about HESS International Educational Group and the teaching opportunities they offer in Taiwan!



If you could use the phrase “best of all worlds,” then Taiwan would be the model. More tropical than Japan, Korea or Mainland China and with a higher standard of living and more saving potential than Southeast Asia, Taiwan is the hidden gem right in the middle. This tiny island nation can only be described as diverse. With its incredible, modern cities with great infrastructure, gorgeous mountains and beaches, and an amazing transportation system that takes you across the country in 90 minutes, Taiwan is something special.

But what really makes Taiwan special is the people. "Welcoming," "friendly," and "so nice" are the words you hear again and again. For those of us who have been here for a while, there is no other place in the world where we could imagine feeling so much at home while being so far from home. Taiwan is that hidden gem that we all hope to find. Comfort and adventure are possible every day. With branches all over Taiwan, HESS can offer the most options to our teachers. In Taiwan, HESS is the leader in English education.

HESS International Educational Group have teachers from all walks of life, and they come to Taiwan for many reasons. HESS can help improve your teaching skills, interpersonal communication, professional development, and personal growth. For whatever reason that's pulling you abroad, leave it to HESS to help you find your way.
