    Abstract: Study abroad experiences have been a widely pursued line of research in second language acquisition, but there have not been many studies qualitatively examining the experiences of Western learners of Chinese in Taiwan. Informed by the Vygotskian Sociocultural perspectives, this qualitative case study analyzed narratives and interview data in order to develop a deep understanding of how three Western learners experienced Taiwan at the beginning stages of their study abroad experience. The result shows that their challenges in terms of cross-cultural communication with Taiwanese could be attributed to the fact that both the participants and the local residents interacted in ways mediated by their own cultural backgrounds. The three learners gradually developed agentive activities in the "third place," which was between their home cultural background and their understanding of Taiwanese culture. Even though the local context remained unchanged, they know how to create better learning opportunities for themselves. The study suggests that both the students and the local residents who have chances to interact with Chinese learners from overseas need to better prepare themselves in order to create best possible cross-cultural learning opportunities.
