Like, I honestly think that they avoid me like the plague for some reason-- it's kind of upsetting. My Chinese isn't THAT bad but it could definitely be improved. For example, there are some phrases I want to say in Chinese but I don't know the vocabulary for so I say it in English. It might just be me but I think making in friends in Taiwan is probably one of the hardest things to do-- they might not be good at English but I know my Chinese isn't that great either. What do you guys think? Any insight on how I can improve my chances in making friends in Taiwan? (so I don't have to go everywhere by myself... damn, that sounds depressing)
Just a slight language barrier. Same for me when I grew up in the USA kids at school didnt want to talk to me because I couldn't speak English when I first arrived. Don't give up and just keep trying. Treat the obstacle as a stepping stone.
