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 Taipei, one of the top ten foodie destinations in the world, with its museums, national monuments, night markets, theaters, and old streets.
During this program, students will take intensive intermediate or advanced Chinese classes fifteen hours per week at the Mandarin Training Center, Taiwan’s oldest, largest, and best-known language training program, based at National Taiwan Normal University. This program will be a direct enrollment program where students will take a placement test with NTNU. 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. Students will attend church meetings with a local Taiwanese congregation and attend the Taipei Taiwan Temple and young adult activities using Chinese. Come experience and explore Taiwan with us!
