As an educator in Taiwan I get to interact with a lot of friends and students from different backgrounds. Many of them go abroad for business, to sightsee or continue their education. A few of them have even decided to permanently live abroad to start a new life chapter. They obtained, both positive and negative, real-time life experiences using their second or sometimes third language to build relationships and pursue their dreams or goals.
I’m fortunate to have one of my former students, Peggy Lee, who now resides in North America, Canada to be exact, in my Taiwan studio. She's here to share with us her experiences of living overseas in a very different culture as an immigrant and how her intensive English language training and formal Taiwanese education prepared her in many expected and unexpected ways.
