396 Research Course

Traveling Experience in Taiwan – Part 3

For this post, I would like to talk about some interesting cultural differences I noticed when I was a volunteer English teacher and interned in Taiwan. During my orientation at the elementary school I was going to be teaching at, the director ran down the daily schedule with us (there were other volunteers).

For lunch, the children would have to drag a cart from the kitchen and then serve the food to the other children. This was another surprise.
