    Take your talent in Mandarin to the next level in the urban metropolis of Taipei.

    Accelerate your Mandarin with four weeks of language immersion in Taipei, the heart of Taiwan. After language classes, dive into Mandarin conversations out in the streets, markets, restaurants, and on expert-guided excursions. Enjoy traditional sports like martial arts; learn about the values of honor, hard work, and respect with a Kung Fu master. Try traditional cooking, like dumpling-making. In painting and calligraphy class, use various brush techniques and deepen your interest in Chinese expression.

    In this setting, your Mandarin language skills will soar. You will forge new friendships too, and improve your cultural competence in countless ways. Hit the road to the small mountain village and old gold-mining town of Jiufen. Overnight excursions take you to Tainan, Taiwan’s first and oldest city, with more than 1,000 Buddhist and Taoist temples, where you will explore the gardens at Koxinga Ancestral Shrine and visit the Tianhou Temple, the oldest temple in Taiwan. Rich experiences in and out of Taipei will steep you in Taiwanese culture: food, art, architecture, natural beauty, and history.
