Thank you for improving the Chinese Teaching Center Development
To cope with the trend of the international exchange, raise the foreign awareness to our country, meet the needs from home and abroad for learning Chinese and educating Chinese teacher, we established Chinese Teaching Center on Aug.1, 2012 and pass the on-site audit of Ministry of Education on Feb.7, 2013. We have been entitled the right of international admission and launched our teaching program on accepting foreign students to come to study Chinese since then.
To create an excellent environment for studying language and culture exchange are the most important policy to achieve our goal of development. With the great help of senior colleagues and business groups, with the concept of digitalizing management and teaching, we rebuilt the former girl’s dormitory—“Feng Ya(maple beauty) Building” into the “Chinese Teaching Center—Feng Ya College” and put it into formal use on Aug.1, 2013.
In the beginning , the classes of the center are “Chinese learning”, “Summer Camp”, “Training Classes ”for teachers, etc. These classes are opened mainly for foreign students and planed according to their proper requirements. Utilizing the art and culture resources from the near by campus, using the teaching method of environmental education and diverse courses, we enhance our features of “presenting local culture, creating a Chinese teaching base over Taipei and New Taipei districts with its core in Soochow.”, “planning multiple teaching style to cope with the customized learning needs”, “inheriting the Confucian spirit and improve the moral education with setting up good examples”, etc. We plan to build facilities to improve study environment and provide abundant proper classes to attract students from Europe, America, Africa, Southeast Asia, etc. By doing these we hope to internationalized our university and develop the global Chinese teaching market to achieve the goal of rooting in Taiwan and stretching into the international world.
