Tsai Hsing school is an esteemed institution with a rich history in Taipei. The English program at the school combines content-based instruction, student-centered activities and tradition methods to promote both academic and real-world usage of the English language. All members of the Tsai Hsing community speak of the extraordinary sense of family. When Tsai Hsing alumi are asked what makes Tsai Hsing special, one of the answers frequently given is that close friendships are made and maintained after graduating. Graduates often speak of the connections they build with faculty members and with other alumni, some of whom they may not even have known while at school. 


Tsai Hsing students are accustomed to interacting with their teachers and are therefore not afraid to ask questions. The openness in the classroom promotes a culture of collaboration and a sense of community which lasts beyond graduation.


The school has been in operation for over 65 years in Taiwan, and has two new branches in Daqing, China and Kunshan, China. A separate advertisement for those positions can be found for the Kunshan campus on the Footprints job board.
