Taiwan mother-in-law helps new immigrants with computer

The National Immigration Agency has launched a new immigrant computer course, and a resident of Tainan, Hong Chu-lien, provided her house for those new immigrants to come and learn the computer. The course is being held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The 76-year-old Hong said that her son married a Vietnamese spouse eight years ago. “Many new immigrants came to Taiwan with beautiful dreams and expectations, however, due to cultural differences and the financial condition of their husbands, some cross-cultural marriages tended to end up in divorce and some of them even suffer from domestic violence,” she added.

To assist the new immigrants, Hong helped her daughter-in-law open a breakfast shop and hired other three foreign spouses. Hong partnered with the NIA and Gjun computer classes to launch the computer course and offer them a place to have class. She said she was only hoping to do her best to make the new immigrants enjoy their stay in Taiwan.
