【看CP學英文】到底住在台灣多久才能成為正港的台灣人呢？在台5年多的黃日鴻 (James Wong)近期拍了一支短片，細數著自己在台灣這幾年下來養成的一些「超台」習慣，其中穿藍白拖、說「嗯」、晚上洗澡、喝熱水和使用貼圖聊天都是他熟們生巧的事，然他也列出五點令他至今無法融會貫通的習慣。
What does it mean to be a “true Taiwanese”?
YouTuber James Wong recently listed his thoughts on the top 14 Taiwan habits that everyone needs to get down if they want to be called “Taiwanese,” including wearing blue and white slippers, saying “en,” taking showers at night and drinking hot water among many others.
As a child, James lived with his Hong Kongese father and British mother abroad. Despite being hard of hearing, his parents never gave up and encouraged him to never give up.
This loving upbringing saw James heading to Taiwan five years prior to challenge himself and learn Chinese, and it was here that he found the love of his life and made a home.
Recently, he shared via YouTube some tips he learned of the habits of Taiwanese people during his five years in Taiwan.
Regarding showering at night, James explained that people in the U.K. tend to do so in the morning due to the cold climate.
Burrowing into the covers at night could sometimes lead to a very sweaty sleep, and thus, they prefer to shower after getting up.
However, as Taiwan is usually stuffy and humid, James has learned to change his habits. He now showers at night and dons clean clothes before going to bed.
In addition, James also mentioned the use of “en” (嗯) in Taiwan. He explained that though he was initially confused, he later came to realize that the word was used to express agreement or confusion, depending on the context and pitch.
Although he has lived in Taiwan for quite some time, James admitted there are some habits that he still can’t get into. Among them, James listed eating hot pot, singing Karaoke and “lining up” as some things that he’s still trying to get the hang of.
