I’ll try not to be too general…
What if I, a 29 year old Canadian woman, want to spend 3 - 6 mos. (visitor visa) in Taichung? I want to either rent a small clean room or apartment and probably take some Mandarin classes or hire a tutor to continue teaching me Mandarin (I have been learning here at home for one year, the purpose is for me to immerse myself). I don’t have a degree so I don’t think I can work and the task of trying to find a proper school to attend from here is too overwhelming via Internet so I think I’ll begin looking when I get there.
I just want to be able to sleep in a clean/safe room and eat (not a lot) and study for three months. At a minimum, how much money do you think I should bring (CDN)? I’m not interested in night life, don’t really care about travel (as I plan to return to Taiwan at a later time to do that)…I just want to seriously go and study (cram) as much as I can into three months.
Any ideas? PM or reply here…all answers appreciated…even the snarkier ones
