Soph in the city =

Seriously city-fied girl flies to the

Other side of the world where

Possibilities she never dreamed of and

Hundreds of new friends and experiences await.

In a brand new city, country and continent

Nothing is left out as she

Takes the time every week to write

Home and tell the city people about the

Experiences she has.

Come along too, read as she writes

Info, anecdotes and photos included, Sophinthecity is a

Tale of a lifetime and one

You cannot afford to miss.

    Hi Sophie,

    I just want to say thanks so much for your blog. I just discovered it this morning when I received an email from i-to-i tefl, advertising it. I read a lot of it and it has really encouraged me to go to Taiwan. I have been sort of deliberating between south korea and taiwan and i think this blog has cinched it for me.

    Can I just ask though, who did you go through to find your job? I have been researching but always seem to find bad stories about recruiters who screw you over and put you in hideous accomodation etc. You seem to have a great little set up and I would be interested in applying to the same recruiter as you did, if you used a recruiter at all.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Jane,

    Definitely come to Taiwan over South Korea, I’m not a Seoul expert or anything but so many people have told me Taiwan is one of the friendliest places in Asia. Everyone here wants to help a lost foreigner or say hello in the supermarket! I got my job through Seriousteachers.com and I used an agent (who is amazing), the school pay for about 80% my accommodation and know different landlords in the area. It’s definitely a nice little set up, if you want the name/email of my agent drop me an email at sophie.wong@live.com.

    Glad you’re enjoying the blog 🙂
