Meet the students at NTUE
2019-2020Korean Exchange Student - Lim Jimin (智珉) Jimin is our Exchange Student from Korea, she was writing her life in Taiwan and wants to share it with us.
It was an excellent choice to become an exchange student at NTUE. I came from Korea, and have been in Taiwan for one year since September 2019.I never regret my decision to come here.
NTUE provides a buddy program, letting the exchange students adjust to life in Taiwan. My buddy and I went to attractions in Taiwan every week. Transportation is convenient around this area, so you can travel at any time, anywhere.
There is also a student club named ISCES, which is for international cultural exchange. Thanks to the club, I experienced various aspects of Taiwanese culture and had a lot of fun with friends from many different countries.
2019-2020 Korean Exchange Student - Yerin (睿璘)
Yerin is our Exchange Student from Korea, she shared her Taiwan life in living, study, and activities. “Why did you decide to become an exchange student?”, this is the most frequently asked question from people after I came to Taiwan. I thought being an exchange student is a very special opportunity for university students to live abroad, so I decided to participate in an exchange program a year ago. Now, I can say that this year is one of the most unforgettable experiences in my life. This is because, through the student exchange program, I made new friends and improved my skills.
To begin with, while living in Taiwan, I made new friends. For example, I got to know other exchange students, language exchange partners, school club members, my buddy, roommates, and classmates. They helped me a lot when I had difficulties because of the language barriers. Furthermore, by hanging out and having a talk with them, I could deepen my understanding of Taiwanese culture and broaden my perspective.
Next, taking classes in NTUE and the Language Center helped me improve my academic skills and Chinese. Even though NTUE is a university of education, it offers a variety of classes, so I could take classes that are related to my field of interest. NTUE also provides exchange students an opportunity to observe elementary school classes in Taiwan, which made me able to compare the Taiwanese education system with the Korean education system. Moreover, my Chinese has improved a lot after taking classes in the Language Center.
The time in Taiwan went by too fast. I would like to thank all the friends, teachers, and staff in the international office for all their help.
2019-2020 America Exchange Student - Anthony Marmaud (馬緣智)
2019-2020 France Exchange Student - Morgane Duflos
Morgane was our exchange student from 2019 to 2020, has studied for 1 semester in Taiwan, and she was sharing some of her experience and life here.
I probably spent my best semester studying in Taiwan, it was a rewarding and emotional experience.
I learned Chinese even though I didn't know a word before I had arrived, I matured and learned many things that I wouldn't have learned in France.
The French don't know Taiwan very well, so I left, as I was curious and very interested in the experience and I have no regrets. I hope I will inspire other people from my school to leave for Taiwan, these 6 months were an honour to develop and learn more about this country and people.
If I have one bad experience it was my return to France on the last day.
