Booking train tickets from Taipei to Kaohsiung

Hi,

How easy is it to book train tickets from Taipei to Kaohsiung? Will the staff at the ticket office be likely to speak English?

Thanks

    It is painfully easy. The staff may or may not speak English, but I found that at least one in the station office did if I was really in need. However both the ticket office and the automatic machines are easy. Just say where you want to go, give money and your done in less than a minute. The machines have English options.

    Thanks, DSwede. That's reassuring to know. It's also good to know that there are ticket machines that have an English option if no one is around to understand me!

    Thanks, taiwan999. Sounds like it should be pretty straight forward to buy the train tickets but appreciate your offer of further help anyway.
