Mandarin On-the-Go in Taiwan: Learn a New Language While Traveling Abroad

TAIPEI, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Mandarin Chinese-language centers of Taiwan’s universities are
working together with the tourism industry to offer innovative tours
that combine local cultural adventures with language learning, in which
visitors will enjoy a trip to Taiwan that’s more than just sightseeing.
Here are some examples:

Northern Taiwan

  • Tamkang University offers a culinary tour. Participants shop for
    ingredients in a traditional market and participate in a cooking
    session, all guided by a professional language instructor. From
    exploring the real local living environment to enjoying popular snacks
    at night markets, visitors will sample the genuine tastes of New
    Taipei City’s famed Danshui District!
  • Chung Yuan Christian University offers four quite different tours. One
    is for people who love visiting historical sites; one explores the
    aesthetics of modern and historical buildings; one introduces the
    culture of indigenous groups; and another features classic cultural
    activities, such as dragon-boat rowing. From natural and humanistic
    scenery to distinctive region-specific events, there is something to
    enjoy for everyone who visits Taoyuan City.

Southern and Central Taiwan

  • Feng Chia University combines language learning with themed cultural
    tours to local attractions such as the Feng Chia Night Market.
    Instructors begin by teaching basic phrases related to destinations on
    the itinerary, which visitors can then put to practical use in
    real-life settings throughout their tour of Taichung City.
  • Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages pairs language learning with
    delectable Taiwanese cuisine. Tranquil trips to Fo Guang Shan
    encompass Buddhist heritage, architectural landmarks, and vegetarian
    food, while Hakka-themed tours feature culinary workshops, Hakka
    cultural sites, and natural wetlands. Moreover, as an ocean nation,
    Taiwan has an abundance of seafood. This is truly a Kaohsiung
    experience tailor-made for food lovers!

For those who are interested in an immersive experience of Taiwan that
will impart lifelong memories, why not try our cultural tours that are
immensely more satisfying than standard sightseeing packages — all while
learning to speak a language that is used by 1.2 billion people around
the globe.
