Taiwan Experience Education Program (TEEP) is to welcome students to join different universities and colleges in Taiwan for a short term professional internship. TEEP@STUST offers an English summer camp and English teaching internship positions. The summer camp features a 3-component module of activities. The first component involves culture exchange through group discussions by the interns and local school students with TAs’ assistance. The second component transforms the content learned into on-site experiences and teaching practicum at the featured scenic or historical locations. The third component as a profound immersion measure engages the foreign students in the learning of Mandarin, Chinese calligraphy, tea making, Pottery and so on, mediating them through host families to the local lifestyle and Taiwan culture.
This is a project promoted, funded, and approved by MOE (the Ministry of Education, Taiwan), proposed by STUST (Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology), and co-organized and supported by TCG (Tainan City Government).
The English summer camp is specifically designed for foreign students to experience Taiwan in depth in a short time through cultural activities and field trips with Taiwanese students. The main theme is to explore the beauty of Tainan, the city of ancient culture, at first hand. The program highlights Taiwan cultural experience and English teaching practicum by (1) learning Chinese language and culture, (2) visiting Taiwanese historical heritage, (3) touring Tainan cultural heritage, (4) experiencing advanced transportation and High-tech facilities, and (5) tasting local cuisine and delicacies.
The English teaching internship provides hands-on EFL teaching experiences and a taste of local lifestyle through interacting with the elementary school and junior high school students, teachers and faculties, host families and the local residents. It is designed to intensify the possibilities of exploring local Taiwan culture.
Learning by experiencing, experiencing by learning. This is definitely a practical program for foreign students to experience and learn Chinese language, culture, and ideology through having fun.
