  • NSLI-Y Week 8  In their eighth week in Taiwan, the NSLI-Y students have more or less settled into their daily routines at Wenzao University.  On October 24th and 25th, however, the students took a very special trip to San Hua High School in Tainan. There, they spent an action-packed two days with a group of 20 exceptional San Hua students and were able to experience life in Taiwan as a teenager, which was a nice break from their university lives!After being greeted by the enthusiastic San Hua students, everyone made their way to the library, where the NSLI-Y and San Hua students took turns giving presentations on special foods from their respective countries.  They then worked together to complete ...

  • NSLI-Y Week 7 文藻華語中心演講比賽 On October 15, 2014, two NSLI-Y students, Molly and Ryan, participated in Wenzao University's Speech Contest.  In Molly's speech, she explained how she hoped to experience the heart of Chinese culture during her time here in Taiwan in addition to improving her Chinese language skills.  Ryan's speech described a time when he got on the wrong bus going home; although he was nervous at first because of his mistake and was unsure of his surroundings, he was able to make it into a cultural learning experience.Although Molly and Ryan did not place in the contest, their efforts were highly impressive and commendable!  The NSLI-Y and iEARN staff are all very proud that these two ...

  • NSLI-Y Week 6 拜訪當地廟宇 On Wednesday, October 8, all ten NSLIY students visited Sanfong Temple and the Sanfong Zhong Street market for a taste of traditional Taiwanese culture.  The previous Friday, the students took a special cultural enrichment class where they learned about temple and folk culture in Taiwan.  Teacher Gong taught the students about Taiwan’s three main religions (Confucianism, Buddhism, and Daoism) as well as folk beliefs and superstitions (e.g. the goddess Mazu, lucky and unlucky numbers, what gifts to not give in certain social situations).  On Wednesday’s trip, the students could see for themselves all the curious and decidedly “foreign” things Teacher Gong told them about.   When the students arrived at Sanfong Temple, they were immediately struck by the ...

  • Molly's Wenzao Speech Contest speech At Wenzao Ursuline University College of Languages where I study Chinese they recently had a speech contest for the international students. I decided to participate because it was a good chance to improve my Chinese and have some fun. Here is a video of my speech! I was so nervous but tried my best! Below is the transcript in Chinese and English!  大家好!我的名字是茉莉。茉莉花的茉莉。今天我要說的題目是'為什麼我喜歡來台灣學中文"。我來自美國,由美國媽媽扶養我長大。媽媽在我小的時候,從中國領養我到美國生活。因為我看起來就像一個台灣人或是大陸人,一般人看到我都以為我會說國語,可是當我一開口說話,大家就覺得很驚訝! 我來台灣的第一個目標是把中文學好,希望我能夠說流利的國語。第二個目標則是希望學習傳統的台灣文化和語言。我覺得跟別的國家比較起來,台灣能夠提供一個適合學習中文的環境,是個比較理想的地方。台灣人都非常友善也很誠實,很能夠接受外來的人。在這裡,生活的環境跟氣氛讓人感到輕鬆自在。 最近我的美國妈妈問了我一個問題。他問我"簡體字跟繁體字有什麼差別"我舉了一個例子給妈妈聽。我說,以"愛" 這個字來說,簡體字的愛跟繁體字的愛就很不一樣。簡體字的愛沒有'心'可是繁體字的愛有心。這讓我感覺到台灣是華語文化的中心。 台灣人保留傳統的繁體字,也得以保存傳統的花語文化。簡體字有時候可能會破壞文字的美感,也可能減少了傳承中國傳統文化的機會。 對世界上每一個國家而言,最重要的知識就是文字。透過文字,一個國家得以對全世界傳達自己的文化,語言,和傳統。我很高興我能有這個機會到台灣學習,我期許自己能在台灣學好中文,文字和華語文化。這是我這一年的目標。謝謝!Hello everyone! My name is Molly. My ...
