A Welcome Lunch Party for International Students

<div>BY AN-LIN SUN</div> <div style="TEXT-JUSTIFY: inter-ideograph"></div> <div style="TEXT-JUSTIFY: inter-ideograph">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Invited by the International Affairs Office, many international students in NTNU join together to enjoy a welcome lunch party specialized for them.&nbsp;<span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div> <div style="TEXT-JUSTIFY: inter-ideograph; TEXT-INDENT: 12pt">Brian, who comes from America, has come to Taiwan for seven years.&nbsp;He says that he ever went to the Mainland China for Mandarin studying.&nbsp;However, &lsquo;the textbooks and the programs there are so bad.&rsquo;&nbsp;On the contrary, he feels that the teaching classes and materials are much more sound and complete in Taiwan.&nbsp;As a graduate student now, Brian hopes to be a teacher in the future.&nbsp;Anna, who is from Poland, says that she enjoys the party and food very much.&nbsp;During the one month she visited Taiwan, Anna is impressive of the friendliness and generosity of Taiwanese.<span>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></div> <div style="TEXT-JUSTIFY: inter-ideograph; TEXT-INDENT: 12pt">NTNU&rsquo;s President Kuo also shows up in the party and gives a short speech.&nbsp;It is more like a talk spoken by a father to his/her own children, because President Kuo in the speech obviously shows his care about the safety of these students.&nbsp;Owing to the fact that several students are injured by traffic accidents recently, Kuo reminds these students not to ride motorcycles as possible as they can, especially who are not familiar with Taiwan&rsquo;s traffic rules and conditions.&nbsp;&lsquo;The MRT is a good alternative choice for you,&rsquo; said by Kuo.&nbsp;</div> <div style="TEXT-JUSTIFY: inter-ideograph">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The party ends with a farewell show in which students, wearing their conventional costumes, say &lsquo;good bye&rsquo; in their own languages.<span>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div>
