Exploring and experience Taiwan through Wenzao Chinese Summer School
Since 2008, Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages has hosted consecutive Chinese summer programs for foreign faculty members and students from our sister schools. Over the past few years, more than 400 international students and faculty members from more than 30 universities worldwide have come to Taiwan for the first time in their life to learn Chinese and to be exposed to Taiwanese Culture. Besides making new friends from all over the world, they have learned Chinese language, enjoyed the hospitality of local Wenzao students and Taiwanese and grown to love the extraordinary and unique culture and history of Taiwan.
CHINESE LANGUAGE CLASS
The program consists of 36 hours of intensive Mandarin classes at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Classes are scheduled in the morning and afternoon that focused on daily-life application and communication. Please visit the website of the Chinese Language Center at http://c040.wzu.edu.tw/ for more information.
CULTURAL CLASSES & FIELD TRIPS
International participants will not only study the Chinese language but also be exposed to various kinds of cultural classes such as calligraphy, tea arts, Chinese music and drama, traditional craft, Tai Chi, Chan meditation and so forth to further introduce the diverse and multi-faceted Taiwanese culture.
FINAL LEARNING PERFORMANCE
To demonstrate the learning result, each international participant is to give a final learning performance. The presentation form is not strictly regulated and is subject to discussion with Mandarin class instructors or can be collaboration between the international participants and local Wenzao students.
