i'm an american moving to taiwan for a year to teach english
not sure where i'm stationed yet, but does anyone have any tips or experiences living there?
>avoid people who aren't from there, it's actually a nice country
got it haha
would you happen to know if there are any japanese styled arcades?
also, do they import hollywood movies or am i stuck with whatever is locally produced?
and i guess more to the interests of this board:
does anyone know the general atmosphere is toward americans? like if i happened to ask someone for directions in english would they be offended or too shy to say anything?
what are some places worth exploring when i arrive?
taiwan is great. I'm here as an exchange student and believe me, you will love this place. people are extremely nice and welcoming. even if they don't know that much english, they are still very eager to help you. plus taiwan has a beautiful countryside, mountains, beaches... modern cities with night markets everywhere, sunny weather but a little bit too humid for me. anyways, so far I can't complain about taiwan ;)
if you're exotic looking you'll have no problem getting girls....
Taiwan in general is a pretty nice place but kind of boring compared to other Asian countries. As far as Japanese style arcades, I didn't notice any when I was there but there are internet cafes around the place.

I don't understand!
that's sort of what i was expecting. probably for the best, i'm ass at fighting games.
I just went to teachaway.com and filled out an application. the qualifications differ based on the job, but a basic example would be 1) do you have a bachelor's degree? 2) if not, do you have an associate's degree and a teaching certification? 3) if no to both, we can't help you.
Every time I see I foreigner I can't help but dislike them.
It always seems to be a balding white guy nearing on middleage with a 25 year old local girl. And I imagine they probably mistook it for Thailand and realized their mistake after they got off the plane.

Sounds like Turk muh diks 16 year old; acquitted.
Whatever you do, do NOT work for Hess! You can earn more or the same at a company that doesn't treat you like a low level cult member. Hess is a really fucking weird organization, and they treat their kids like shit.
