I participated in the "Taiwan Host Family" event with the recommendation of a fellow senior international student. I wasn't entirely sure how the event would take place and nervous along the way there thinking about how and what I would talk about, how do I interact with them, worrying if they can understand what I say when I only know limited mandarin vocabularies before finally arriving to the location, and was greeted by a really lovely couple with their 2 little children. My worrying thoughts was still there, but by time it slowly disappeared and got better the longer we talked. I got to know where the family came from, their work, why they wanted to participate in this event. It turns out that both parties were first timers in participating in this program. They were truly really kind people. They were patient in trying to understand me when I tried to speak with my broken mandarin. They also spoke to me in a slower manner occasionally with the help of google translate so that I can understand better.
20 minutes in, 2 other international student from Vietnam came. It was interesting to listen to their experience living here, getting to know them and listening to their mother tongue when they spoke to each other. Not only from Vietnam, during the tea-time, I got a chance to talk with other international students from Malaysia and other countries as well. It was nice to talk to them because a lot of us can relate to how it's like to be far away from home, and their reactions to the difference in culture. After the event was over, the family brought me to have lunch when it wasn't even compulsory. We went to a restaurant which was a regular destination for the family when they come to visit a relative at Kaohsiung (the family lives at Taichung). They offered me to bring back the leftover dim sum to the dorm, proceeded to go drink some boba, gave me more snacks, along with a cute wardrobe freshener before driving me back to my dorm. During the meal and the ride, we talked about the multiple topics from cute Maggie's favorite Japanese character Summiko, Taiwan's famous dan bing, to my own hometown. It was an amazing experience, I loved it. I'm thinking if I come back here from my country, I would return the favor by bringing them some of my favorite snacks from back home. Hopefully I get the chance. Well that is all from me. I reccomend this event to other international students at Taiwan. It is really a nice way to get to know the culture, meet precious people and also a good way to practice your speaking skills.♡

謝謝給了我這種經驗 ^^
To the family and to the Organizer .
