Taiwanese volunteer Malambo, Arraijan. Wu Shan-Jiun

Friday, October 30th, 2015

      Taiwanese volunteer Malambo, Arraijan. Wu Shan-Jiun Panama Expat Hero from Taiwan 大家好!我叫做Kimi,從台灣來! 我在2015年的5月底抵達巴拿馬,預計停留13個月的時間。 我是透過了一個台灣的組織:國合會ICDF來到巴拿馬做志工服務。 目前在位於Arraijan的Malambo內擔任英文老師, Malambo是一所收容約150人的育幼院,院內約90%是女童。 我主要的工作是協助教授3歲~12歲的兒童英文,由於孩子們主要的語言還是西文, 所以我報名了SpanishPanama的西文課程。 我到了巴拿馬才開始學西文,在學校內西文溝通能力很重要, 所以我希望藉由SpanishPanama的西文課程讓我可以習得西文口語表達及溝通, 讓我在Malambo的教學及巴拿馬生活都可以更豐富。 在巴拿馬目前有8位ICDF的志工(其中含我就有4位在SpanishPanama上課!),大家位在不同的學校、設施及NPO進行志工服務。 另外雖然在巴拿馬每10個人就有一個是亞洲人,但其實台灣人在巴拿馬只有約300人。 台灣現在在全世界只有22個邦交國,而巴拿馬正是其中之一, 所以台灣大使館在巴拿馬有推動許多計畫,也有提供獎學金給巴拿馬人到台灣學中文! 我喜歡巴拿馬, 除了天氣炎熱(跟台灣差不多) 巴拿馬人大多熱情,但也有許多會一直對著我喊Chinita,但我明明是Taiwanesa! 這邊有許多特別的傳統食物跟小吃我很喜歡, 郊區風景也很漂亮,加勒比海岸、連綿不絕的高山與樹林我都很喜歡。 但我最不喜歡的是巴拿馬的交通,常常塞車塞很久 都市有公車跟捷運,但是到了郊區就只有紅魔鬼可以搭,到各個地方不太方便。     最後想跟大家簡單介紹台灣, 台灣位於東北亞,鄰近中國與日本,首都為「台北」 使用語言是中文跟台語,但大多數簡單的英文也可以通。 台灣最有名的觀光景點就是夜市,從晚上8點開到半夜2點的食物街, 還有許多24小時不打烊的便利商店與餐廳,非常方便。 還有許多各種亞洲的食物,保證讓你吃到開心!
