Adapters are readily available, as are batteries. If you have dual voltage equipment make sure you have them set for the right voltage or damage may occur.

Why WLS?
A26.
Training, Support and Environment. Our training program is the best in Taiwan. We have regularly scheduled workshops for teacher development. All WLS teachers go through our indoctrination program (workshops, class observations and debriefings, video-training tapes, readings). We have experienced mentors on duty every day to help with lesson planning and to lend teachers a hand. We have a fully developed and proven curriculum for all types of WLS classes. Our curriculum includes lesson plans, guidelines, targets, tests, homework handouts and teacher notes specific to each class that were created, designed and tested in Taiwanese classrooms by our staff. All teachers may be considered for positions of Teacher Trainer, Head Teacher, Education Director, and Curriculum Development Advisor once they have gained experience and shown interest in and ability to handle these positions.
