Community Compass: British exchange student expresses love for Taiwan

RESEARCHER Nitesh Khilwani said Taiwanese students are very friendly and hospitable and have helped him overcome a wide variety of obstacles



Currently a student at I-shou University, British student Nitesh Khilwani said he has fallen in love with Taiwan after being here for two months.

In October last year, Khilwani, a student at Loughborough University in the UK, came to Kaohsiung County to conduct some short-term research in the field of international business cooperation in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management at I-shou University’s College of Management.

Khilwani, who is studying for his doctoral degree at Loughborough University, said he received a grant to study outside the UK, and he chose Germany or Greece in Europe or Taiwan in Asia.

Khilwani said I-shou University was well known abroad and that many foreign students would be coming to study there. Taiwanese students are very welcoming and friendly, and they have provided him with a great deal of help, which has made it easier for him to overcome any difficulties, he said.

He said Taiwanese students’ general English knowledge was quite good, although some students were afraid to speak it.

During his research in Taiwan, Khilwani said he traveled to Tainan with a group of Chinese exchange students, and the group spent their evenings at local night markets.

Taiwanese food is so delicious that he starts salivating every time he thinks of it, Khilwani said, adding that he would also be sure to find the time to visit the popular night markets in Kaohsiung.
