Now over half a century old, our Center of Chinese Language and Culture offers students the chance to learn Chinese in small classes as well as many chances to take part in cultural activities. The campus is located in the Greater Taipei area, and the metro right at our doorstep means it takes only 20 minutes to travel right into the heart of Taipei.
