My most memorable cross-cultural experience...

d . My most memorable cross-cultural experience

My most memorable cross-cultural experience was during a wonderful summer vacation . I attended an ESL course at Columbia University , where I made friends with people from all over the world . At first , I was a little scared because I was not adapted to the new environment and there were many people from different countries . When we talked our experiences and lives , I could not share my experiences very well because my classmates did not seem to understand what I meant . However after one week , I became

more active and made friends with my classmates . My classmates were from France , Japan , Korea , Columbia , and Germany . I learned a lot about each of these individuals and a little about their cultures as well . For example , I learned that the Japanese like to share their food , and they always bow at 90 degrees .

When my friends and I felt tired or missed home , she comforted us and hugged us , just like our mothers would . She was a very kindly person

In New York , I saw many things that were different from Taiwan . For example , there were fast trains and slow trains in the subway . We must pay attention to the trains or we could take the wrong train . In addition , Americans like to listen to music in the park . They liked to enjoy wine on the grass . I remember that one day my friends and I want to imitate the Americans and listen to music in Central Park , but we did not bring or prepare anything we only brought a camera . When we arrived , we were shocked . The Americans were really enjoying the music The sun was declining and the scene was very beautiful . The Americans put cushions on the grass , and they drank with each other . My friends and I just put newss on the grass . That looked so...
