My Experience in Taiwan

I'm Dylan Evans from the UK. Sixteen years ago, I got the chance to work in Taiwan for five months. Sixteen years have passed. I'm still here because I've fallen in love with this land.

I remember my first day in Taiwan. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, but I felt so lost. I didn't know whether it was a good idea to work in a different country or not. At the airport, I was trying to catch the bus to Taichung, but all of the signs were in Chinese. I walked to a row of shops and asked the people there for help. No one understood me. I felt helpless at that moment. Finally, after an hour, an old man showed me where to catch the bus. What a first day!

A few weeks later, I still didn't have any friends here. I thought it would be easy to meet people, but I was wrong. I was so lonely that I thought about going home. One day, however, three teenagers came up to me at a store. After some small talk, they asked if they could take a picture with me. I said, "Sure!" I made my first Taiwanese friends that day. It was the turning point of my life in Taiwan. What an experience!

After several years, I got to know this land and its people more. Taiwanese people are friendly and polite; they are just too shy to speak to foreigners. Over the years, I've learned how warm-hearted they can be. I've made the right decision. Taiwan is now my home.

我在臺灣的體驗

我是從英國來的迪倫•埃文斯。16 年前,我有機會來臺灣工作五個月。16 年過去了。我仍在這裡因為我愛上了這片土地。

我記得來到臺灣的第一天。陽光閃耀著,鳥兒歌唱著,但我卻感到相當迷惘。我不知道在不同國家工作是不是好主意。在機場,我試著要搭公車去臺中,但是所有的標誌都是中文。我走向一排的商店並尋求那裡的人幫忙。沒有人懂我在說什麼。在那瞬間我感到無助。最後,過了一小時,有位老先生指引我搭公車的地方。多麼糟的第一天!

幾週後,我在這裡仍然沒有任何朋友。我原本以為認識新朋友很簡單,但是我錯了。我感到很寂寞以致於想要回家。然而,有一天,在一家商店裡,三個年輕人走近我。在聊了些話後,他們問他們是否可以跟我一起拍照。我說,「當然好!」那天我交到了我的第 1 批臺灣朋友。這是我在臺灣生活的轉捩點。多麼令人印象深刻的經驗!

幾年後,我更瞭解這片土地和人們。臺灣人友善並且有禮貌;他們只是太害羞以致於不敢跟外國人講話。這幾年,我學到臺灣人是多麼熱情。我做了正確的決定。臺灣現在是我的家。
