To begin the host family welcome party this year, Yilan ETAs sang and acted out a well-known warm Chinese song “Moon represents my heart”. Following up with the Chinese song, Yilan ETAs danced and led the whole host families to dance with them. That brought the beginning of the interaction between Yilan ETAs and host families.
With the arrangement by Yilan Education Bureau, ETAs and host families together made their own special food, bamboo rice and popiah, and enjoyed the traditional meal named feast after harvesting the rice. During this event, Yilan County Government presented ETAs the very special notebook compiled the poems and mini engraving artwork by the local Yilan kids. Fulbright Taiwan presented host families English Picture Books composed by previous ETAs.
Lastly, we hope Yilan ETAs and host families could share mutual cultures and create numerous memorable experiences with each other.
