Taiwan is Stanford American Language School
Jhunan (Zhunan)
branches in Jhubei and 2 in Hsinshu.

This is the worst school to work for in Taiwan.
They can teach Hitler and his Gestapo some lessons in cruelty.
When I complained and said I got some legal advice I got fired on the spot. They took $30 000 deposit from me and gave me about 2 hours to leave the school and their dorm.After some threats from an agent I got my deposit back but they still didn't pay me what they were supposed to.
No teacher ever finished their contracts with Stanford, as far as I know. They're also advertising regularly on Tealit.
The only guy who finished his contract was one without an ARC - because he had no choice.
I was so traumatized I nearly left Taiwan after that, but fortunately, I found some good and honorable people to work for. Now I am in love with Taiwan and wish I could stay here for the rest of my life.

Institute Review
I worked at Stanford for two and a half years. I'm now teaching at Hong Kong. I do not remember my starting salary to be 2500NT for 7 hours. Your information may be incorrect. When I extended my contract, the school gave me a raise. It was pretty nice. 
The school does have high expectations for all teachers; can't deny that you'll need to be devoted and responsible. I learned a lot from the experience, and had started my love of teaching and traveling.

    Another Taiwanese plant in a comment thread to make things sound better than they are. Typical.
