【看CP學英文】台灣抗疫經驗世界有目共睹,在這段艱困的時刻,身在海外的台灣人更能深切感受到來自家鄉的溫暖,而台裔加拿大人David Peng正是其中之一。

Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the world has recognized Taiwan’s experience in fighting the pandemic. During this challenging time, overseas Taiwanese can feel their homeland’s warmth far away, and David Peng is one of them.

台灣出生的David在加拿大長大,然而,和許多人一樣,因為疫情而回到了家鄉。

Born in Taiwan, David grew up in Canada; however, he returned to Taiwan due to the coronavirus outbreak like many others.

這段期間,David看到台灣防疫上的成就,熱愛攝影的他決定與駐溫哥華台北經濟文化辦事處合作拍攝一支影片,記錄台灣抗疫過程,並訪問到海外台人分享自身與台灣土地的連結。

David saw the achievements of Taiwan’s efforts in pandemic prevention and decided to work with the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office in Vancouver to make a video.

The video documents Taiwan’s process of fighting against the pandemic and the thoughts from overseas Taiwanese.

「我希望可以透過這支影片讓大家更進一步了解台灣這次防疫的成績。」David向The China Post說道。

“I hope that through this video, more can better understand the achievements of Taiwan’s pandemic prevention,” David told The China Post.

影片中,一位女孩的獨白貫穿5分鐘的影片,從疫情初期民眾的徬徨無助、台灣超前部屬並捐贈口罩給其他國家、再到2019同性婚姻合法,真實呈現出台灣這兩年的政策、防疫上的成果,在國際舞台上發光發熱。

A woman’s monologue runs through the five-minute film, from people’s helplessness at the beginning of the pandemic to Taiwan’s donation of masks to other countries.

The legalization of same-sex marriage in 2019 is also included in the video.

The 5-minutes clip showcases Taiwan’s policies and achievements in the past two years and making a splash on the international stage.

最後,身處在各地的三位台灣華僑分享他們對家鄉的一切美好感到念念不忘。從小住在加拿大的Grace想念台灣夜市美食;身在溫哥華的Giny擔任電台DJ,她不時會在節目中與大家分享台灣的美,還會教一些台語。

Among other highlights, three overseas Taiwanese shared that they miss everything in their hometown.

Grace, who has lived in Canada since she was little, misses the night market food in Taiwan; Ginny, a broadcaster in Vancouver, shares Taiwan’s beauty on her show and teaches Taiwanese from time to time.

目前在餐廳打工的龍二對於台灣合法同婚感到欣慰,他說:「謝謝台灣給我婚姻平權的自由。」

Long-Er, who currently works part-time in a restaurant, feels gratified by same-sex marriage in Taiwan. “Thank you, Taiwan for advocating marriage equality,” Long-Er said.
