A big thanks to David on Formosa and Michael Turton

As a foreigner in Taiwan information can be like currency. Often I will find myself taking the long way round the city or be at a loss due to misinformation or lack of communication on culture and language. Yesterday David on Formosa sent an email with the recommendation of a good Chinese tutor. Today I met with the tutor and he has a agreed to teach me Chinese and help with translating documents for my PhD. This is a huge weight off my shoulders and David I would like to take a moment to personally thank you.

David’s blog is expertly written and contains many helpful reports on the culture and news of Taipei and Taiwan. At the same time I would also like to thank blogger Michael Turton whose information on Taiwan has been worth its weight in gold. Over a year ago I came across Michael’s website Teaching English In Taiwan while researching the possibility of moving from Canada to Taiwan. Michael and David your reporting is invaluable and I very much appreciate your musings on the life and culture of Taiwan.

Cheers!
