Hello everyone! I’m @olivertomolife and I’ve studied abroad in Kaohsiung!
If you are planning to study abroad in Taiwan, I’m sure many of you have concerns about your study and luggage.
By reading this article, you will be able to solve those concerns!
Because in this article, you will learn about the language aspects and luggage that are likely to make you anxious about studying in Taiwan.
This article is based on my own study abroad experience, so I am confident that it has a certain amount of persuasive power.
Let’s get rid of your worries before you study abroad together!
I experienced a working holiday in Kaohsiung for one year from February 2020. Currently, I am writing a blog based on that experience.
Let’s take a look at what you need to know about studying in Taiwan.
What are the three points to keep in mind when studying abroad in Taiwan?
1 Is it possible to study abroad with no Chinese language experience?
Many people who go to study abroad in Taiwan are probably going there to learn Chinese.
In this context, you may have concerns about whether it is a language that even beginners can learn.
However, the quality of language schools in Taiwan is so high that even those with no experience can learn the language.
I myself was a beginner in Chinese, but after studying abroad for a year, I was able to improve to a near advanced level.
Of course, daily study is also an essential part of learning a language.
The following articles are designed to push you forward if you are worried about studying in Taiwan.
2 Do Taiwanese people not use Pinyin?
Most people who learn Chinese probably usually use Pinyin to learn it.
In fact, Taiwanese use a symbol called Taiwan zhuying.
There are a total of 37 characters in Taiwanese Pinyin, which can be a bit of a hurdle for foreigners to learn.
However, you don’t have to worry because language schools in Taiwan use Chinese Pinyin to teach you!
The following article introduces Taiwan Pinyin, so please refer to it for more information.
3 What luggage do I need in Taiwan?
The most important thing to keep in mind when studying in Taiwan is to prepare your luggage.
The climate varies depending on where you are in Taiwan.
One thing they all have in common is the hot weather throughout the year, and winters can get as cold as 15 degrees Celsius.
If you worry too much and bring a lot of luggage with you, you will be in trouble if you don’t need any of it.
In the following article, I introduce a list of things to bring to Taiwan based on my own experiences.
