ELT an Alternative to Taiwanese Boot Camp

The Taiwan government plans to extend a scheme that offers some young men an alternative to compulsory military service - teaching English. The scheme is meant to encourage those with a degree from a foreign university to return to Taiwan to teach English in remote country areas. The plan is similar to the Taiwan Youth Overseas Service, which allows men to do their compulsory military duty in volunteer work overseas. Incidentally, men between the ages of 18 and 40 who were born in Taiwan or who have ever held a Taiwan passport should be aware that they may be subject to compulsory military service in Taiwan, even if they are also foreign citizens, and even if they have entered Taiwan on, for example, a U.S. passport.
