On August 28, 2014, ten of the United States’ best and brightest high school students arrived in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, to begin their nine-month long study abroad adventure.  These students, hailing from all around the United States, were chosen to participate in the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) scholarship program; they will be living with host families and studying Mandarin at Wenzao University until the end of May.  The students’ names are: Brendan Ryan (Mississippi); Ryan Lee (Oregon); Ryan Struss (Texas); Antonio Santa Cruz (Texas); Molly Breuger (Virginia); Haleigh Copley-Cunningham (Ohio); Morgan Brackett (Idaho); Freya Quist (Colorado); Anel Torres (California); and Elizabeth Stewart (Maine).

The students met their host families in a fun and jovial ceremony.  The students and their host families played a little puzzle game to get to know each other before going to their new homes.  These ten students are sure to improve their Mandarin skills, and they will undoubtedly have an enriching and unforgettable experience in Taiwan!


2014/08/28 經過長途的飛行與車程,十位美國學生總算抵達高雄展開新年度的華語文以及台灣文化的學習。

10位學生分別是: Brendan (王新舜)、Ryan Lee (張宜剛)、Ryan Struss (瑞安)Antonio (安東尼)、Molly(潘蔚)、Haleigh(匡海麗)、Morgan(柏可晨)、Freya(祈聖虹)、Anel (安莉兒)以及Elizabeth (石伊麗)。


學生們和接待家庭的首次見面充滿著驚喜和喜悅,透過本計畫安排的小活動也讓大家很快的熟悉起來。在此,感謝這些高雄在地接待家庭熱情的接下照顧這十位學生的任務。我們期許,接下來的這十個月裡,學生們不僅在華語文學習上有所進步,也透過本計畫安排的活動以及與當地朋友的互動中更了解台灣在地文化同時體驗台灣人的熱情和活力。
