Hi, I’m a Korean student who’s studing in Taiwan.
In Taiwan, there are 3 things that surprised me the most.
One time, I was taking a bus in Taipei.
It’s raining cats and dogs, we couldn’t even see the road.
He gave me an umbrella because I didn’t have one.
I asked how I could return it back to him.
He told me to give it to someone else when they need it.
Second is MRT, Easy Card.
If you don’t have enough money in the card, you can still use it once more.
The system will show the deficit, but you can use it one extra time.
You can’t do that in Korea.
So I find this service to be really thoughtful.
Third is traditional Chinese.
I started to learn Chinese through traditional characters in college.
My teacher told me it’s critical to know what Chinese chatacters look like.
After a few years, I realize how much it has helped me during the process.
Traditional charasctes enable you to understand the true meanings behind those Chinese chatacters.
So I suggest any foreigner who wants to learn Chinese.
Start with traditional chatacters, plus, they look beautiful too.
