Goodbye to all you unqualified, drunken, tattoo-faced, cant-speak-a-lick-of-Chinese suburban punks on a lark!

Taiwan is happily finally casting those types out in favor of genuinely qualified teachers of a far higher caliber.

Their days are numbered and so they come to boards like this and lie to each other to try for one last breath of hope before they too get axed once and for all.

"Far higher caliber?" Really? Could've fooled me. Again, it seems like the far higher calibre crowd are leaving for greener pastures, most notably China.

You seem a little "angry" in your post - been here 9 years and can't speak-a-lick of Chinese other than ordering at subway and starbucks.

Really? Point me in the direction of this high-caliber you speak of....

Stop being an asshat and get out of the house more.

which unqualified foreigners work in Taiwan? Those who don't have a degree? Or two year diploma? Those who never went to college or university at all? High school dropouts? Those are the only people I can imagine being unqualified to teach.

But they cracked down on that a long time ago. Many years ago you could teach on a tourist visa with little fear of being caught. But no longer do those days exist cause the police do checkups on all the schools once in a while. Getting the proper visa and resident permit to work in Taiwan requires real qualifications. Not some cheap bogus online degree mills where you get your unaccredited life experience degree in 5 days. Sorry. This isn't China.

Tattoo faced foreigners? Um.... Regardless of how qualified they are, wouldn't that scare the kids?
