The annual salary Increase in a calendar year (12 months) can be easily calculated as follows: Annual Salary Increase = Increase Rate x 12 ÷ Increase Frequency

“The average salary increase in one year (12 months) in Taiwan is 2%.”

Types of Bonuses Considered

Individual Performance-Based Bonuses

The most standard form of bonus where the employee is awarded based on their exceptional performance.

Company Performance Bonuses

Occasionally, some companies like to celebrate excess earnings and profits with their staff collectively in the form of bonuses that are granted to everyone. The amount of the bonus will probably be different from person to person depending on their role within the organization.

Goal-Based Bonuses

Granted upon achieving an important goal or milestone.

Holiday / End of Year Bonuses

These types of bonuses are given without a reason and usually resemble an appreciation token.

Bonuses Are Not Commissions!

People tend to confuse bonuses with commissions. A commission is a prefixed rate at which someone gets paid for items sold or deals completed while a bonus is in most cases arbitrary and unplanned.


What makes a position worthy of good bonuses and a high salary?

The main two types of jobs

Revenue GeneratorsSupporting Cast

Employees that are directly involved in generating revenue or profit for the organization. Their field of expertise usually matches the type of business.

Employees that support and facilitate the work of revenue generators. Their expertise is usually different from that of the core business operations.

Example:
A graphics designer working for a graphics designing company.

Example:
A graphic designer in the marketing department of a hospital.


Revenue generators usually get more and higher bonuses, higher salaries, and more frequent salary increments. The reason is quite simple: it is easier to quantify your value to the company in monetary terms when you participate in revenue generation.

“Try to work for companies where your skills can generate revenue. We can't all generate revenue and that's perfectly fine.”

Bonus Comparison by Seniority Level

Top management personnel and senior employees naturally exhibit higher bonus rates and frequencies than juniors. This is very predictable due to the inherent responsibilities of being higher in the hierarchy. People in top positions can easily get double or triple bonus rates than employees down the pyramid.

Elementary School Teacher Average Hourly Wage in Taiwan


530TWD per hour

The average hourly wage (pay per hour) in Taiwan is 530 TWD. This means that the average Elementary School Teacher in Taiwan earns approximately 530 TWD for every worked hour.


Hourly Wage = Annual Salary ÷ ( 52 x 5 x 8 )


The hourly wage is the salary paid in one worked hour. Usually jobs are classified into two categories: salaried jobs and hourly jobs. Salaried jobs pay a fix amount regardless of the hours worked. Hourly jobs pay per worked hour. To convert salary into hourly wage the above formula is used (assuming 5 working days in a week and 8 working hours per day which is the standard for most jobs). The hourly wage calculation may differ slightly depending on the worked hours per week and the annual vacation allowance. The figures mentioned above are good approximations and are considered to be the standard. One major difference between salaried employees and hourly paid employees is overtime eligibility. Salaried employees are usually exempt from overtime as opposed to hourly paid staff.

How Much do English Teachers EARN in Taiwan?

Taiwan is often an underrated market for teaching English abroad when it comes to salaries. It’s usually overshadowed by the perks that teachers receive in neighboring countries like South Korea and China, such as paid airfare and housing. Even though it’s not common to see those particular perks included in your contract in Taiwan, teachers can still expect to save the same amount per month as they would in China and South Korea, which is anywhere from $700- $1,000/month depending on your spending habits.

In this article, I’ll break down a few examples of different working and saving scenarios that my friends and I were able to accomplish in Taiwan. For the sake of keeping things simple, I’ll quote everything in the US Dollar, not the New Taiwanese Dollar.

TEFL Taiwan

I’ll start with me. I worked full-time at a high school teaching English in Taipei, Taiwan. I made roughly $2200 per month working 25 teaching hours per week. I spent about 5-10 hours of prepping and planning outside of those hours, so it came out to roughly 30-35 hours per week of total work. My rent was $300 per month and I spent around $1000 per month on going out, regional travel, dinners, public transport, cell phone, and other miscellaneous bills. So at the end of the month, I was saving an average of $800-$900. I was much more interested in traveling than tucking away this money for a rainy day. So I got to see a lot of Asia during my year as a teacher. I visited South Korea, Japan, Thailand, and went all over Taiwan.

The second example is my co-worker who worked with me at the high school. She made the same salary as me, but was pretty diligent with saving her money. She also picked up private tutoring jobs to supplement her income. Private tutoring in Taiwan can land you an extra $20-$25/hour, so it’s definitely worth your time if you decide you want to work extra hours! She saved about $1300/month. She worked in Taiwan for three years, and not only did she pay off $18,000 in credit card debt, but she also backpacked for four months around SE Asia and India once she completed her three year stint in Taiwan.



The third example is my roommate. She was from Toronto and went to Taiwan with a goal of saving a substantial amount of money to put a sizable down payment on a condo back home. She was also really diligent about saving and picking up private tutoring hours to accomplish her goal. She worked around 40 teaching hours/week and made roughly $3000/month. Her portion of the rent was a little higher ($400/month) and she spent around $800/month on going out and enjoying her time in Taiwan and paying other bills. She was able to save $1800/month.After her three years of working in Taiwan, she took $65,000 back home and is currently living in that high rise condo in The Junction, Toronto.

I love sharing these stories about all that we were able to accomplish as teachers in Taiwan. And something to note as well, is that we weren’t suffering through long hours of labor to save this money. We were still traveling and enjoying life as an expat! It’s truly a win-win for people are interested in paying off debts, saving for future endeavors, or for those who simply just want to see the world.

You can't really expect any salary increases during the study period, assuming you already have a job. In most cases, a salary review is conducted once education is completed and the degree has been attained.

How to calculate the salary increment percentage?

The annual salary Increase in a calendar year (12 months) can be easily calculated as follows: Annual Salary Increase = Increase Rate x 12 ÷ Increase Frequency

“The average salary increase in one year (12 months) in Taiwan is 2%.”

How much and how often are bonuses being awarded?Annual Salary Bonus Rate Taiwan Teacher
Share This Chart  Tweet      Get Chart Link

Types of Bonuses Considered

Individual Performance-Based Bonuses

The most standard form of bonus where the employee is awarded based on their exceptional performance.

Company Performance Bonuses

Occasionally, some companies like to celebrate excess earnings and profits with their staff collectively in the form of bonuses that are granted to everyone. The amount of the bonus will probably be different from person to person depending on their role within the organization.

Goal-Based Bonuses

Granted upon achieving an important goal or milestone.

Holiday / End of Year Bonuses

These types of bonuses are given without a reason and usually resemble an appreciation token.

Bonuses Are Not Commissions!

People tend to confuse bonuses with commissions. A commission is a prefixed rate at which someone gets paid for items sold or deals completed while a bonus is in most cases arbitrary and unplanned.


What makes a position worthy of good bonuses and a high salary?

The main two types of jobs

Revenue GeneratorsSupporting Cast

Employees that are directly involved in generating revenue or profit for the organization. Their field of expertise usually matches the type of business.

Employees that support and facilitate the work of revenue generators. Their expertise is usually different from that of the core business operations.

Example:
A graphics designer working for a graphics designing company.

Example:
A graphic designer in the marketing department of a hospital.


Revenue generators usually get more and higher bonuses, higher salaries, and more frequent salary increments. The reason is quite simple: it is easier to quantify your value to the company in monetary terms when you participate in revenue generation.

“Try to work for companies where your skills can generate revenue. We can't all generate revenue and that's perfectly fine.”

Bonus Comparison by Seniority Level

Top management personnel and senior employees naturally exhibit higher bonus rates and frequencies than juniors. This is very predictable due to the inherent responsibilities of being higher in the hierarchy. People in top positions can easily get double or triple bonus rates than employees down the pyramid.

Teacher Average Hourly Wage in Taiwan


600TWD per hour

The average hourly wage (pay per hour) in Taiwan is 600 TWD. This means that the average Teacher in Taiwan earns approximately 600 TWD for every worked hour.


Hourly Wage = Annual Salary ÷ ( 52 x 5 x 8 )


The hourly wage is the salary paid in one worked hour. Usually jobs are classified into two categories: salaried jobs and hourly jobs. Salaried jobs pay a fix amount regardless of the hours worked. Hourly jobs pay per worked hour. To convert salary into hourly wage the above formula is used (assuming 5 working days in a week and 8 working hours per day which is the standard for most jobs). The hourly wage calculation may differ slightly depending on the worked hours per week and the annual vacation allowance. The figures mentioned above are good approximations and are considered to be the standard. One major difference between salaried employees and hourly paid employees is overtime eligibility. Salaried employees are usually exempt from overtime as opposed to hourly paid staff.
