1. Please introduce yourself.
my name is yang tzu hsuan. (楊子萱) I am 20 years old. I came to Gunsan University From Taiwan National Normal University as an exchange student.
2.You came to Gunsan University as an exchange student during the summer vacation. How was your day?
I wake up at 8 in the morning and go to the international exchange center at 9. And from 9 to 11, all Taiwan exchange students take Korean classes and have lunch from 11 to 2. After lunch time, I take Korean classes, understanding of Korea, from 2 to 4 or 5. After finishing all the classes and having dinner, I usually go to the dormitory to do my homework and spend time with other Taiwan students.
3. What impressed you most while you were an exchange student?
I am very impressed with coin singing in Korea. It's everywhere, cheaper than regular karaoke room and easier to use on your own. Taiwan is just starting to get coin karaoke room. But there are not as many coin karaoke room in Taiwan as in Korea. I used it with other Taiwan exchange student friends during the vacation and it was really fun.
4. I heard that \exchange students went on many trip together during the vacation. Where do you remain in your memory and want to recommend it to other exchange students?
The Mud Festival was held in Boryeong, and I'd like to recommend it. The reason is that it is not in Taiwan and it is a Korean festival that only takes place in the summer. Also, it would be good for other exchange students to go because there are many foreigners at the festival. There are many different games such as tail catching, ssireum (Korean wrestling), and pillow fight. I think the most memorable moment is when everyone played all day with other Taiwan friends. If you come to Korea, please visit Boryeong Festival!
5. Have you ever missed Taiwan while living in Korea?
Korean cuisine is very different from Taiwan. Korean dishes were almost spicy, salty, or sweet, so there were many restrictions on eating them. So I miss Taiwan food a lot. Also, cafe drinks are different from Taiwan. The difference between beverages in Taiwan and Korea can be felt in taste, topping, and size. You can eat a large drink with a lot more toppings more cheaply in Taiwan. The drinks in Korea were sweet and too expensive. I think I missed the part that I ate the most.
