Get ready for a culinary journey!

If you’re up for it, you will excite your palate and all your senses with the myriad of cuisines you can find in Taipei and more generally in Taiwan. You will experience diverse Taiwanese and traditional indigenous dishes to cuisines influenced by Mainland China and Japanese past occupation.

Our Chinese programs in Taipei include a full immersion with a Taiwanese family which provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Confucian culture that plays a very important role in the Taiwanese way of life.

The traditional Confucian culture is the common base of social culture in Taiwan as well as in Mainland China. It is a complex societal system that rules the individual’s’ relationships with others and their appropriate conduct.

This inspiring cultural and urban environment definitely makes Taipei an exciting destination to learn Chinese Mandarin and gain a memorable experience.
