(The school newspaper club is interviewing Dylan Evans, John's father.)
Ethan: Mr. Evans, thank you for meeting us. Many students loved your article in the school newspaper. It was interesting to read.
Mr. Evans: I'm happy to hear that.
Nora: There's a saying, "East or west, home is best." Will you go back to the UK someday?
Mr. Evans: I don't think so. My family and I love Taiwan. We feel that we belong here.
Ethan: You've been here for more than 10 years. Do you have any more stories to share with us?
Mr. Evans: Sure. One time, I was walking down the stairs. A woman was going up with her son. When they got closer to me, the mother pointed at my face and said to her son, "Look! A waiguoren."
Nora: That was rude.
Mr. Evans: I don't know whether the woman knew that was rude. Many people don't have that awareness. However, I'm sure I've also done rude things in the eyes of Taiwanese people.
Ethan: So we should communicate with each other more to understand each other better. This way, we'll know what is rude and what is not.
Mr. Evans: That's right! And we are doing so right now.
