Study Mandarin, Visit Taiwan: Seminar on Summer Va
Seminar on Summer Vacation Study Tours to Taiwan for Mandarin Students in the Department of East Asian Studies, 2019

“Teacher, I would like to ask you about going to Taiwan to study Mandarin during the summer vacation.” In autumn 2018, on the first day of a new semester at the University of Cambridge, a student asked this question during a briefing for new Mandarin students in the Department of East Asian Studies.  They had initially heard a little about Taiwan from higher-level students and, consequently, had been longing to learn more for quite some time.

In fact, since as early as 2014, under encouragement from the Taiwanese teacher at that time, students of Mandarin in the University of Cambridge’s Department of East Asian Studies had started going to Taiwan during the summer vacation to study the Chinese language. In 2015, the entire first-year student body attended the Mandarin Training Centre at National Taiwan Normal University; after returning to the UK, they were full of praise for their unforgettable experiences in Taiwan and actively promoted the opportunity amongst younger students. Over the four consecutive years since, almost all first-year students have been able to go to Taiwan during summer vacation. An information session is also held by second-year students for applicants of the Ministry of Education Huayu Enrichment Scholarship, covering aspects ranging from the scholarship application process, precautions and language centre selection, to eating, drinking and having fun in Taiwan. The older students have no qualms about sharing what to expect in Taiwan, while the younger students relish their guidance. This year’s briefing took place successfully on the 8th February, 2019. It is anticipated this tradition will continue in the future so that even more students can view Taiwan with their own eyes and experience the beauty of Taiwan for themselves.
