心得感想：I love my teacher. She is a great teacher who always makes us laugh but keeps our focus on learning more Mandarin. We play games, and do other interactive exercises to practice our vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. I will miss our class meetings after the term ends.
I love getting to explore the town. I have had many nice conversations with shop owners and artists around Hualien. I love meal times here in Taiwan because it means I get to practice mandarin and try new tasty food.
心得感想：I love my teacher. She has high expectation of me, but is also understanding. I love the fun games she challenges us with sometimes she has us speak in class even when we don't know all the words but she is very patient, which is good but it makes me nervous and it can be very hard. She never loses her positive energy.
I wish I know about more music, night activities, but I've really enjoyed all the weekend field-trips such as painting at the hospital and the hunter school.
心得感想：The mandarin class has been challenging since is the first time I have ever learned such a different language from mine. Laoshi has been supporting. My life here in Hualien has been interesting since I have the opportunity to explore a new culture, observe and learn from people. I have eaten delicious food and visited many temples. At the same time, it's been a bit limited since I don't speak fluent mandarin.
心得感想：The activities in class match the level for comprehension. The skills acquired are useful for everyday speaking scenarios. The biggest challenge is to remember the writing, for the rest every aspect in class is suitable and proper of a learning environment. In Hualien, my favorite place is quiet and peaceful to study. The most comfortable place for reviewing notes, reading and writing. It's often the near library or office place.
心得感想：I have greatly enjoyed this course and learned a lot of Chinese this past three months. I've immersed myself in Taiwanese culture. Living in the dormitory gives me immediate and convenient access to all of the resources and activities necessary for leading a fulfilling student life. Thank you.
