|Abstract:||我的論文的目的是增加大家對於外國人在台灣與南韓生活之差異的認識。我對於在南韓與台灣的外國人做質性與量性的比較分析。這篇論文主要的研究問題是：什麼因素會影響南韓和台灣的外國人適應跨文化的生活？這些因素相互的關係，以及外國人對於南韓與台灣整體的滿意度。以往很少有針對兩國的外國人生活滿意度的正式研究。 我本身在南韓首爾生活了兩年，我在大學時當過交換學生一年 ，並且在公立小學當了一年的英文老師；而我在台灣研讀碩士兩年，也同時兼職教英文。作為一個外國人，我發現生活滿意度可以有很大的差異 ，這些差異應該被揭露，不應該被忽視。本篇論文將利用文獻以及統計資料，針對外國人如何看待他們在台灣與南韓的生活做個完整的討論。|
The purpose of my thesis is to raise more in-depth awareness of what it is like to be an expat in Taiwan and South Korea. I did a comparative analysis between expats of South Korea and Taiwan, both quantitative and some qualitative analysis were used. The main research question in this thesis is “What are the factors that affect how well an expat is able to cross-culturally adapt in Taiwan and South Korea? And What is the relationship between these factors and the overall level of satisfaction of expats in both Taiwan and South Korea?” There have been very few formal studies which focus on Expat Satisfaction Levels in these two countries. I have lived as an Expat in Seoul, South Korea for 2 years; I was an exchange student during my undergraduate studies for 1 year and an English Teacher in a public Elementary School for 1 year as well; I have lived in Taiwan for 2 years as a Master’s Degree student while also teaching English part-time. During my time as an Expat I have seen that overall expat satisfaction levels can vary dramatically and these variations need to be revealed and not ignored. This thesis will provide a thorough and well-rounded discussion on how Expats perceive the quality of their lives in Taiwan and South Korea using both literature and statistical information.
