ANOTHER TAIPEI FAQ

Q: Do they speak English?

A: Hardly. We were able to survive thanks to hubby's basic Mandarin lessons. No actual conversations but we were able to communicate, enough to get what we wanted or needed.

The train, airport, street signs are translated in English. And of course, there are maps in English.

Galing! Marunong pala mag-Mandarin si Jorge? I've been in SG for 3 years and all I know how to say are yes, no, takeaway, thank you and 1-2-3! Haha!
