Chinese Learning Center Information

Lastest release date: Nov 03, 2016







Established in 1970 as the first language center in central Taiwan, CLC was initially intended to serve the family members of Tunghai's foreign faculty. The center is located on the Tunghai campus, and is nestled amongst beautiful trees, flowers, and bird songs, making it an excellent place to learn Chinese.We at the Language Centre see the interaction of real life experience and language study as very important, and hope that our students will use the skills they acquire in their lives. The marriage of linguistic expression with linguistic activity is an extremely effective teaching strategy, thus the CLC promotes language instruction that is connected to real life language, based on communication between teacher and students, and which allows students the opportunity to express themselves in real situations. Aside from language classes, complementary culture classes allow the students to experience Chinese culture firsthand. Drama classes also allow students to engage their bodies in the Chinese language and, through role-play and dramatization, experience otherwise hidden facets of Chinese society, all while improving their language skills. We care deeply about the results of students' study, and we happily assist all of our students to achieve their academic and linguistic goals.

Most CLC students choose to rent an apartment or studio close to campus, But according to Tunghai University policy, CLC students may apply for residence after the Undergraduate student application period. If rooms are still available, they are then made available to foreign students. Therefore, students must apply for residence after they register for classes at the Chinese Language Centre. Exchange students who hold formal student status will be guaranteed a place in residence. Residence offers four or five student rooms, and the fee is NT6300 per semester for older residence buildings and NT9600 per semester for newer buildings. In the Summer semester, rooms are available for NT380 per week. Residences do not provide kitchen space, and bathrooms are shared. Small study spaces are available within residence.
