I came to Taiwan because I was offered a scholarship and I have friends here.
And the weather is nice...(and guys are cute)
I was in China before, now I’m here in Taiwan because I wanna see the difference.
Plus, the traditional characters.
I think it’s easier to switch from traditional to simplified than simplified to traditional.
I chose to study in Taiwan because when I heard that Taiwanese people speak
I thought it was different. It was a lot more friendly and soft spoken which I like.
Especially the guys, I felt that they were really cute when they speak.
I started to learn Chinese when I was about 18 years old.
Because I like China, so I decided to learn simplified Chinese and pinyin.
Then I used Chinese teaching websites to learn Chinese.
I taught myself how to write, read and speak without teachers.
One day, I saw a word “Formosa”, and I later found out it means “Taiwan”.
And then I decided to come to Taiwan because I feel Taiwan’s Chinese is the real one.
So first I saw a vedio of “Transition”. Everyone knows their song.
So after I watched the documentary about Taiwan.
Taiwan is amazing, I want to go there.
And my mom really wanted me to go to China for a year but I was like no...it’s another world.
If I am going somewhere; I am gonna to go to Taiwan so I went to Taiwan’s embassy and I got a scholarship here.
When I first came to Taiwan, I literally fell in love with this country.
Because everything is really convenient in Taiwan.
I don’t think the entire Europe has that many convenience stores.
Taiwan is very safe too. I can go out to buy stuff 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning.
Taiwan is an international place! Taiwanese are quite friendly towards foreigners.
Plus, I also got a scholarship from Taiwan as well.
I chose to study Chinese in Taiwan because I had gone to China before.
I think China is not as clean. Also Chinese are usually shy when they meet foreigners, so I can’t really practice my Chinese with them.
But Taiwanese are more interested in foreigners, so I get to use Chinese to talk to strangers or friends every single day.
