      Hi community,

      May I ask, how much can I earn as an English Teacher in Taiwan?

      I’ve heard it’s a lot, but how does that fair in terms in making savings?

      I’ve heard mixed stories of yes and now, obviously nothing too clear.

      Thanks for your time.

      Teaching pay in Taiwan is often considered high, around $700- $1,000/month depending on your spending habits.

      I worked full-time at a kindergarten and cram school teaching English in Taipei. I made roughly $2200 per month working 25 teaching hours per week. I spent about 5 hours of prepping of those hours, so it came out to roughly 30ish hours per week of total work. Rent was pretty much $300 per month and I spent around $1000 per month on going out, traveling, nice dinners, public transport, cell phone, and other miscellaneous bills. So at the end of the month, I was saving around $800-$900. – I definitely could have saved much more.

      All my $$$ is in USD by the way.
