Taiwan Mandarin Institute

  • Taiwan Mandarin Institute is located at a prime position in the capital city of Taiwan, to the North of the island. Taipei has a very contested history and a highlight to visit whilst in the Capital city is the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, a memorial erected for a former president, which is 20 minutes from Taiwan Mandarin Institute. In close proximity to the Memorial Hall are a number of train stations that are well connected to all major cities in Taiwan. As travelling by train has been rated as one of the best ways to visit the country, students will be able to do this with ease.

    Taiwan Manderin Institute has a subway station, Taipower Building Station, seconds from the front day meaning students are able to explore the city during their free time. Coupled with the city’s ...
    interesting past, there is also a modern twist to Taipei which should not be missed. Shi-men Ting shopping neighborhood is just 15 minutes on the subway and Taipei 101, a magnificent skyscraper, impossible to miss, can be visited in a 30 minutes metro ride.

    In order to get to grips with a new language, a great method is to combine the learning with activities that can help plant the seed of understanding. There is a great emphasis on the importance of this at Taiwan Manderine Institute and the school offers an evening social event three times a week for students to socialise with both their classmates and their teachers as well as experience the depth of the Taiwanese culture. The class content and form is of equal importance and all teachers are fully trained and with over 2 years experience of teaching Taiwanese.
