The caveat is it's more expensive to live in taiwan, so it's a trade off. I'm looking towards a major city in mainland china, I was thinking guangzhou but there's a lot of cantonese. I would never do it in singapore, I lived in singapore for a part of my life and

Taiwan is very expensive and you will be stuck on that island. Its Taipei or Bust.

At least in China you can travel around and its cheap and allows you to save money.

Guangzhou speaks mostly mandarin now. Its 2016, there is an influx of people from all over China. You won't hear that much Cantonese talk, those days are over. The communist party has push for Mandarin as the official language.

I am learning mandarin now in Guangzhou. I was initially worry about that. I found out quickly that only the older people speak Cantonese. The young one speak mostly Mandarin. A few young people speak Cantonese, but most young people speak mandarin to each other.

Taipei is perhaps slightly more expensive than the average Tier 1 city in China (though I assume cheaper than Shanghai), certainly not "very expensive". It doesn't really matter that you're on an island since you can get cross-strait flights for peanuts.

Advantage of China is you'll meet foreign guys doing something else than English teaching, which is very difficult in Taipei. Definitely more networking opportunities.

Quote:what are the price points for studying in taiwan? I checked mainland china it varies from 2-4k USD a year for some programs, which isn't really a lot. But, a lot of the lower price point universities are in the bumble fuck nowhere, like gansu.

About the same in Taiwan.
