台灣網紅曝住德文化衝擊 讚「這一點」德國大勝台灣 | Taiwanese YouTuber in Germany tells of culture shock

【看CP學英文】台灣YouTuber吳美琪 (Maggie)曾擔任過13年的雙語主持人,去年從台灣搬到德國,近期也拍了許多支影片以「外國人」的角度介紹當地的旅遊、生活型態和文化。

Taiwanese YouTuber, Maggie Wu, who has hosted a bilingual talk show for the past thirteen years, moved to Germany last year. Since then, she has filmed many videos introducing tourism and daily life in Germany. In her latest video, she talks about the German culture and what living in Germany is like.

剛到德國時,Maggie也有深刻的體驗到文化衝擊。「德國生活與文化衝擊」影片中,Maggie和同樣在德國為「外國人」友人探討台灣和德國最大的差別,以及住在國外的優缺點。

German culture shock as a Taiwanese while living in Germany” is about the many differences between Taiwan and Germany. The video features Maggie and her friends who explore the good and bad things about living in a foreign country. 

他們在影片中指出從一個國家搬到另一個國家絕非簡單事宜,途中必定帶來許多挑戰。他們表示,其中經濟上的挑戰最容易碰到因為對於許多人來說,搬一次家的金費根本是在吃盡老本。

The group pointed out that moving from one country to another is no easy task, and comes with many challenges. When you immigrate, you might face some financial challenges too, they added, as for many people, the journey would actually eat into their savings. 

他們同時也提到許多人需要放棄原有的工作,到了新地方也要快速的學習新的語言。除此之外,想要移民的人也需要適應當地的環境和文化。以上所有的事雖然具有挑戰性,但是只要有時間和耐心,他們表示都是可以被克服的。

The friends mentioned that some had given up their original job and are still struggling to learn the new language. If you wish to immigrate, you will have to learn the local culture too. All of the above can be challenging for many people, but all it takes is time and patience, they said.

同時,影片中也提到德國有著不同的文化和生活習慣。其中令他們印象深刻的就是大家可以早點下班,而孩子們也不會像在台灣一樣一放學就要去補習班。

They stressed that Germany has a different culture too. People get off of work earlier than they would in Taiwan and kids are free from cram schools unlike in Taiwan. 

他們表示這樣的現象不僅讓家長有更多時間陪孩子,小孩也可以利用自己的時間多在戶外活動,體驗「大自然的教室」。

The group acknowledged that this is a good thing about Germany because parents have more time to interact with their kids. And since kids are free right after school, they can explore nature and have fun learning from their new experiences, instead of being stuck indoors the whole day. 

搬到一個新的國家成為「外國人」一點都不容易,然而其中也有許多有趣和新鮮的事物等著你去發掘。就跟著Maggie一起體驗更多德國的文化和生活習性吧!

Moving to a new country and becoming a “foreigner” is very difficult, but there are definitely good things that come with exploring a new place! Follow Maggie’s journey as she explores more cultures and habits of Germans!
