The buxiban system of education in Taiwan has a life of its own.English teachers are in high demand in Taiwan both in the public schools and in Buxibans.

I’ve dated around considerably more than I ever did in Poland, but the most dates I had with any one guy was four, and that was two too many.When comparing the quality of Expats in Poland to Taiwan, Poland wins hands down.

The subject of intercultural/interracial relationships is being discussed But I had not yet seen an attempt to give a voice to those who are directly affected by such terms – namely, Taiwanese girls dating Western guys.

Do you have to speak Chinese to date a Taiwanese girl? Do you live in Taipei or near a Taiwanese community back home?
Then chances are you won't have to speak Chinese to have a relationship with a Taiwanese woman.
