Gateway Chinese Institute

The language school Gateway Chinese Institute was founded in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 2014. The campus is perched on the side of a mountain overlooking a beautiful sandy beach. All just 20 minutes from the city center.


Taiwan’s second largest city, and one of the largest container ports in the world, Kaohsiung (高雄; gāoxióng) makes the ideal introduction to Taiwan. It’s a modern megacity blossoming with authentic Taiwanese culture.

Its architectural and historic sights are enhanced by the large number of lush parks, outdoor cafés and bars, art galleries and museums, two swimming beaches and 1200 sprawling acres of pristine forest within the city area– all linked by a spanking-new transport system. The older districts of Zuoying, Yancheng and Cijin Island contain plenty of historic sights along with a smattering of traditional snack stalls and multicultural cuisine, while modern Kaohsiung is best taken in with an evening stroll along the Love River or True Love Pier or perhaps a visit to soaring 85 Sky Tower close to its bustling shopping districts.



The school address is: 4F, 77 Liwen Rd,Zuoying District, Kaohsiung City (813), Taiwan (R.O.C)., 813 - Kaohsiung, Taiwan (see on map)

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The Director of Gateway Chinese Institute and his team went above and beyond! Their dedication and professionalism are forever etched in my memory as: I was a last-minute registrant, I had specific aims for this linguistic journey and some specific interests for the cultural section of the program! I appreciate all the hard work that Director Nic and this staff put into fulfilling it all ...despite the very short notice. Their thoughtfulness when from coordinating my pick-up from an out-of town area to ...working hard to see about the delivery of a special cultural component I was interested in ...and even on a Sunday!! Also the lodging was very well chosen and thus made the logistics of getting timely to and from class class very convenient.
Other comments: Continuous success and Blessings! I shall definitely recommend GCI!
