     Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages received more than 100 students and faculty members from Spain, Belgium, France, the United States, Vietnam, Thailand, and South Korea coming to learn Chinese language and experience authentic Taiwanese culture in July, 2014.  

     Wenzao Chinese Summer School(WCSS) is an annual event held by the Office of International and Cross-strait Cooperation, and this year marked the seventh straight year that WCSS accommodated 36 participants from partner institutions.  During the three-week intensive course, participants attended Chinese language lessons, tutoring sessions, and cultural classes, such as Thai Chi, Chinese chess, and calligraphy.  Furthermore, homestay arrangements were made for participants to experience more Taiwanese lifestyles on the weekends.

     One participant, Kandyce Williams, from Ursuline College, USA, stated that Chinese language is a must-learn language nowadays and that she especially loves local snacks and Taiwanese people’s hospitality, so she expected to learn more Chinese phrases that can be practiced in daily life.  Another participant, Mint, from Bangkok University, Thailand, also considered Chinese language fairly important, especially when she found out that her friends were able to speak a little Chinese, which motivated her to come to Taiwan and learn more about Chinese language and culture.

     Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages is well-known for its Chinese language teaching, so there were other groups of foreign students and faculty coming to learn Chinese language.  In July 2014, 15 participants aged 10 to 22 from Espace Culturel Franco-Asiatique, France, came to learn Chinese language and culture for 3 weeks.  The Chinese Language Center also arranged city tours and field trips for them to know more about Taiwan.

     Beside the group from France, a group composed of 26 teachers of Chinese Language from Vietnam came to learn teaching methodology to improve their Chinese teaching skills.  They all have had several years of experiences in teaching Chinese, and they were particularly interested in digital teaching in Chinese language.  During their stay, they also visited some universities and some tourist attractions in Kaohsiung, Tainan, and Taipei.
