Taiwan, with its cosmopolitan cities, is Asia’s most vibrant democracy, yet it is also a place of stunning natural beauty with mountains and hiking trails to explore and beautiful beaches to enjoy. It combines the customs and folkways of the Chinese, Hoklo, Hakka, and indigenous peoples that inhabit it. Traditional Chinese religions, arts, music, foods, and cultures are all well preserved here and are readily accessible. This program will be based in Taichung. With its pleasant climate, bustling night markets, and scenic landscapes, Taichung offers a unique balance of city life and natural beauty.
Students will take intensive Chinese classes fifteen hours per week at National Chung Hsing University. Students will also participate in an internship in June, during which they will introduce American culture in local K-12 schools, and they will receive internship course credits. This program will be a direct enrollment program so students will take a placement test with NCHU. Based on their proficiency level, they will be placed into a class where they will study with students from other countries.
In addition to the language classes, students will participate in field trips to eastern and southern Taiwan and to Hong Kong. The number of participating students is limited to 25, so apply early. Come experience and explore Taiwan with us!
