The MLC short term study abroad camps are for foreigners that want to come to Taiwan to study Mandarin or to deepen their understanding of Chinese culture and art. Our program is tailored towards people of all nationalities and has been designed for groups of 15 people or more. These camps have been lauded by people from all backgrounds as programs with a truly international perspective. In our camps you'll learn about the Chinese language as well as art, folk crafts and popular tourist destinations. This is just the beginning; there's really no limit to what you might encounter in our classes!  Groups and individuals are welcome to contact us if they are interested in taking this course.  Please tell us your available study dates and learning needs and we will respond ASAP!

Q7:What will the students do besides study Chinese? Are there other types of classes and activities?
A:There is a lot that we do besides studying Chinese in the classroom.  Our teaching staff also lead many courses that verse students in different aspects of Chinese culture such as martial arts, diabolo, Chinese knot tying, art, etc., which allow students to understand more traditional aspects of Chinese life. We also take students outside the classroom on field trips. For example, in the past we've gone to see the Yingge pottery exhibitions, the National Palace Museum and Jiufen, the mining village. You can also make special requests to where you'd like to go as well and we'll do our best to organize a trip.
