ABOUT THE CHINESE COURSES FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS
As part of the International Business Administration program at Tunghai, international students are required to enroll in 8 hours/ per week of intensive foundametal Chinese language instruction during Freshman and 6 hours/ per week of intensive advanced Chinese language instruction at Tunghai’s Chinese Language Center, in both the Fall and Spring semesters. Further Chinese language study is available to international students in the junior, and senior years.
The Chinese Language and Culture Program at Tunghai University offers a wide range of language and culture courses, with an emphasis on traditional characters and classical culture. Learning traditional Chinese characters instead of simplified characters enables the student to identify lexical forms and to appreciate the aesthetic power of Chinese calligraphy. Arts and culture courses enhance language study at all levels of background and ability.
International Students can take advantage of special classes on Chinese cooking and cuisine, Holidays and festivals, and Chinese social customs, as well as sponsored field trips to Taipei 101, National Palace Museum, Sun-Moon Lake, Anping Tree House, and others.
