Hello! I’m Matthew, an Asian-American fresh to Taiwan. I just moved to Kaohsiung, literally only been a week since I got out of quarantine.
I accepted the only job offer I received and didn’t realize how far out of the actual city I’m located in. I’m in the Linyuan District and it’s like the country side here. Haha I’m an English teacher at an Elementary and Sr High School, and I’m the only foreign teacher at both schools.
Even local Kaohsiung locals tell me I live too far out from everything lol This is a long shot but I was wondering if there were any other foreign English teachers (or foreigners in general) in the area open to connecting.
People here have been pretty nice so far, but with my very limited Chinese and not knowing anyone, things can get a bit lonesome. Getting out of Linyuan is a bit cumbersome without a car or scooter, and all I have is a beat up bike. lol if you’re in the area, please say hi!
