Learn Chinese and Teach English

Learn Chinese, and teach English at the same time. You will not only learn a language which is becoming more and more important every passing year, but you will also gain teaching experience.

Teaching English will take six hours per week. The schedule is flexible and will be based on what works for both you and your host family.

However, your teaching will never encroach on your Chinese classes. Other than fluent or native English level, no other qualification or experience is needed.

While teaching English you will experience the local culture, and learn Chinese at school which you will then use daily at your homestay.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I speak English with my host family?

As this is a Teach English homestay, at least one of the family members will have some understanding of English. However, normally English will not be spoken as the homestay is mainly for you to improve your Chinese.

Is there an opportunity to wash my clothes at the homestay?

Of course. All of our homestays have washing machines. Maybe the host family will even do your laundry for you!

Should I bring the family a gift from my home country?

It is not necessary, but it is welcome if you do. Taiwanese people still value relationships highly, and this can be a great way to make a good first impression.

Which family member will I be teaching?

Usually your student will be a child of the family. Less common you might teach an adult member. This however is up to the host family.

What can I expect in terms of food while staying at my homestay?

Taiwanese cuisine is varied and full of flavours. Our host families are experienced and used to cooking at home, be it for breakfast or dinner. Have an open mind, and just enjoy the food. If you have any special dietary requests, please let us know beforehand.

I heard that the summer in Taipei can get hot, will my homestay have air condition?

Yes, all of our homestays have air condition so you can stay comfortable during the warmer periods of the year.

How do you select Homestay families?

Choosing the right Homestay family is absolutely vital and something we take very seriously. We get many applicants from families in Taipei who wish to host our students but we make sure the fit is a perfect one. The accommodation must be comfortable, the support must be 24/7 and the location must be relative to our school. Families must be warm, welcoming and willing to help the student whenever possible. All our homestay families tick these boxes. For Live and Teach Homestay families there must also be a family member willing to learn English and co-operate with you for lessons. Many apply to be a homestay family with LTL, only few make the cut.
