This is a forum in Taipei where people get to hand out in a fun and safe environment. We aim at building a big community with friendly people currently residing in Taipei.
You don't need to have experience overseas or be able to speak English to join this group. Every friendly person is welcome to join this group! Include local people in Taipei or Taiwan.
If you happen to be traveling to Taipei, you would be welcome to join our group and events^^ If you are a Taiwanese currently overseas, still welcome join the group!
Everyone is welcome! All events are free of charge! Members are welcome to propose meetup events for the group, as long as it's safe and fun for participating members. (E.g., any kind of social events that are of interests to members--tea/coffee, dinner, lounge, dancing, special events...)
We are facilitating "International Language Exchange" with native speakers from all over the world (through Internet) when our group has more Chinese speakers then English speakers.
Eventually, the language will not be limited to English and Chinese! In Toronto we are having "Multi-Language Exchange" among Chinese, English, French, Japanese, Spanish, Dutch, Korean, Arabian... Sometimes we even got friends from Russian,German,Italy,Portugal... over there^^
We are establishing a global network of Taiwanese communities.You get to connect to Taiwanese worldwide, as well as foreigners who like to know Taiwan or make Taiwanese friends.
* More countries/cities to come soon. Stay tuned~~
******* We are the World *******
International Friends @ Taipei
World Culture & Travel
If you are culture, language, travel, and/or fun lover, and you like to enjoy them for free, this is the group for you!!
Language is not a problem^^ Welcome to join us if you only speak Chinese, English, or another native language of yours.
(If you would like to improve your English, you can meet friendly native English speakers here! And have conversation with them for free!)
If you are a new comer or happen to be traveling to Taipei, welcome to contact this friendly group also!
We will connect to other non-profit iFriends communities worldwide. Wouldn't it be nice if you travel to Paris or Tokyo, you get to meet lots of local residents there, and they may as well show you around and do the interpretation for you free of charge? Let alone the valuable information, assistance, friendship, and security... It may even facilitate the trips that were originally impossible for many of us.
International Friends Worldwide:
We are establishing a chain of non-profit organizations so that you have friends everywhere in the world before you go! Welcome to join those groups even if you are not there yet!
We live in an ever-shrinking global village, where modern technologies connect people from any corner of the world in a way and intensity never seen before. We also have the fortune to live in a vibrant city that is home to diverse cultures and people of various ethnic backgrounds.
The goal of this Meetup group is two-fold:
(1) To promote cross-cultural dialogue and cultural/language exchange through a variety of local activities and events, as well as international trips.
(Participation in these events is always optional and the organizers are not charging for service.)
(2) To build a chain of WCT groups worldwide so that you have friends all over the world.
(You get to visit them or participate in group events if you travel there. We will also facilitate on-line events so that you can keep in touch with each other after returning to your home town or get to know people at your travel destinations while you are planning your trip...)
WCT-Taipei gives you an opportunity to experience some of the international cultures that Taipei hosts, to share your knowledge of your own cultural heritage with other event participants, and meet new friends and expand horizon while doing so.
