Program Overview

CIEE Intensive Language

Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, is an international city with superb restaurants, modern hotels and churches, and an active nightlife. Taipei is also internationally known for its traditional Taiwanese and neo-Chinese cuisine. The National Palace Museum, located at the northwest edge of the city, contains the greatest collection of Chinese art in the world. Nestled in a basin surrounded by the well-hiked Yangming Mountains, greater Taipei is a bustling, high-tech city with some six million residents.

Program Focus

This program is appropriate for beginning through advanced language students who have an interest in improving their Chinese while having the opportunity to take non-language courses taught in English that aid in understanding Taiwanese culture and society. The program offers a flexible and supportive environment in which to experience life at one of Taiwan’s most prestigious national universities.
