Time: 10:00

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.

Global Careers Month | Intercultural communication challenge!

Date: 02 March 2020
Time: 15:00

Booking and Further Information

Event is suitable for:

  • All students who want to test and develop their cultural intelligence and communication skills
  • All students who want to improve their CV and impress employers with their inter-cultural skills


Join the Global Community team for a surprising and interactive session where you can test your cultural intelligence and communication skills!




Today's workplaces are more multicultural than ever, and it's normal to work with people from many different places and backgrounds. This has opened up many new opportunities – but it's also created some challenges.

Cultural differences aren't just about nationality, ethnicity or belief. Many of us work in multigenerational organizations, alongside younger or older colleagues who have cultural references, assumptions and attitudes that are very different from our own. And cultural clashes can even emerge between departments and teams in the same organization.

By attending this session you will be able to understand what cultural intelligence is and intercultural skills are and ensure you be able to develop these during and after your studies.
