About Parker in Taiwan

Hi, I'm Parker and I'll be spending this summer studying Chinese in Tainan, Taiwan! Follow my adventures on the Gilman Scholarship's vlog!

Taiwan: What’s for lunch?

One of my favorite aspects of any culture is the unique food! I’m currently studying in Tainan; a city famous for its fresh fruit, bubble milk tea, and a signature sweet taste. Delicious food is at my fingertips 24/7 in Tainan, and an average meal here costs less than $7 USD. Check out this video to see what a student might find for lunch in Taiwan!

Hello from Taiwan!

Hi! My name is Parker; I am a Gilman Scholar studying Chinese in Taiwan. I am excited to be here as part of the TUSA Global Ambassador Program at the National Cheng Kung University because I have always wanted to live and study in a Chinese speaking country! My main goal for my time abroad is to improve my Chinese language skills as much as possible. I love the opportunity to speak the language in my daily life as well as in the classroom, and I am falling in love with Taiwan!
