Are the placements paid?

Yes. As with all Pagoda Projects programmes, you will know exactly how much you will be paid, interview with the placement company and confirm your placement before committing to the programme. The salary for Taipei placements will easily cover living expenses (rent, food etc).

Do I need to speak Chinese to participate?

This usually depends on the placement company – Most of our partner companies don’t require any Chinese language skills though.
As you will be living in Taipei for a while, we do encourage you to do some self learning of the basics though to help you settle in.
