Become immersed in the rich culture and history of Taiwan while studying at National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU). This program allows participants to take Chinese language courses through the Mandarin Training Center at NTNU in addition to courses taught in English at NTNU.

Located in northern Taiwan, the nation's capital Taipei has always been the political and economic center of the country. It is also an international city with a population of over 2,600,000, the world's tallest building (Taipei 101 Tower), a fast and easy mass transit system, a bustling night-market culture, international cuisine, more shopping centers than any other major city in Asia, and host to top international entertainment acts. Apart from its modern side, Taipei has also inherited a rich traditional culture. The internationally renowned National Palace Museum is home to the largest collection of Asian antiquities in the world and boasts a resplendent display of treasures from Imperial China spanning many different dynasties. Throughout the city, many artifacts, old streets, and temples of historical value have been preserved. Just outside the city is Yangmingshan National Park with its extraordinary volcanic geological features, breathtaking flora and fauna, and a vast network of walking paths, which combine to create an exceptional natural environment and getaway for the inhabitants of Taipei.
