About Me

I graduated from National Taiwan Normal University and have been an assistant professor for 20 years. I have taught many overseas students about the history and culture of Taiwan and enjoy meeting and communicating with them.


I live with my husband and daughter in Taichung. I love to travel with my family and friends and get close to nature. I’ve travelled to more than ten countries. I spend a lot of time reading books, watching dramas, and socialising. 


If you come to stay with me, I’ll introduce you to Taiwan’s food culture, show you local sightseeing spots and teach you daily Chinese to help you make conversations. I look forward to meeting you in Taichung!

Neighbourhood and public transportation

My house is in a quiet residential area but only a 2-minute walk from the main roads in Taichung, where you can take U-bike, bus or train. It’s only 5 mins by bus to Chongde MRT Station and 30 mins by MRT to Wuri High-Speed Rail Station. The International Intercontinental Baseball Stadium, Morrison American School, and Hanshin shopping mall are nearby. As Taiwan is very safe, many foreigners live in this area. There’re four convenience stores, various restaurants, snack bars, and Chinese and Western medicine clinics within 3 mins walk.
