     To promote and facilitate Southeast Asian cultural exchanges, the School held a Southeast Asian Fair in which Vietnamese and Indonesian cuisines, dances, musical performances, and related books were presented, attracting teachers and students to participate.

     It was co-organized by the Center for Southeast Asian Languages Teaching of the College of European and Asian Languages of Wenzao and the office of the universities-without-borders project of the Ministry of Education in Wenzao. In his remarks, Vice President for Development Li-yen Chen said that Southeast Asian countries enjoy rich and diverse cultures. Taiwan is geographically close to those countries and has many new immigrants from the region, making Taiwan’s culture even richer. As there are many Southeast Asian students studying in Wenzao, it is expected that this kinds of cultural events will help local teachers and students understand the languages, lifestyles, and cultures of Indonesia and Vietnam more.

     Dean of the College of European and Asian Languages Shoou-huey Chang stated that Wenzao provides credit programs for Southeast Asian languages and industries, in which courses of Vietnamese, Indonesian, and Thai languages are provided. The School will also provide courses of Burmese and Cambodian language in the future and hold fairs irregularly. Dean Chang also expressed that Wenzao has been entrusted by the Ministry of Education to carry out the universities-without-borders project. In the future, the School will devote to designing teaching materials and training teachers of Southeast Asian languages. It will also work with the Kaohsiung City Government to develop itself into a learning base for Southeast Asian cultures and languages and build physical and virtual platforms for Southeast Asian exchanges on campus. It is expected that a network centering base in Wenzao will be created to connect the entire community and help the city government build a prosperous and integrated city without borders.

     Director of Taiwan Education Center Gui-ying Hsu said that the reaching out to Southeast Asian cultures and languages should focus on the nurturing of talents. During his visit to the Taiwan Higher Education Fair in Vietnam this March, the president of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities of Vietnam National University Hanoi, which was the host of the fair, recognized the excellent quality of Taiwan’s higher education and highly recommended local students to study in Taiwan. Director Hsu also invited local students to encourage their younger schoolmates to study in Wenzao.

     Jia-ni Wu, an Indonesian student setting up a stall in the Southeast Asian Fair, believed that the fair could help the promotion of Indonesian culture and cuisines, thus facilitating cultural exchanges between Taiwan and Indonesia. Yu-san Liu, a Taiwanese student studying in the fourth grade of the two-year college program of the Department of English, mentioned that she can speak English and Spanish and is now taking the teacher education program. Regarding that there are many children of new immigrants in elementary schools in Taiwan, she is also taking Vietnamese lessons this semester, so that she will understand and communicate with Southeast Asian students better when she becomes a teacher. 

     In the Southeast Asian Fair, there were dynamic events such as the performance of traditional Indonesian and Vietnamese dances, the playing of Indonesian musical instrument “Angklung,” the demonstration of toys, and the making of Indonesian and Vietnamese cuisines. There were also static displays of travel information, language teaching materials, books, and traditional musical instruments. Hong Yi Travel Service, Asian A-Tsiu International, Good Shepherd Social Welfare Services, TransAsia Sisters Association Taiwan, and Caves Books also set up stalls in the fair. It is hoped that through the fair, teachers and students will have the chance to experience, appreciate, and enjoy Southeast Asian cultures, thus immersing in the vivid cultural atmosphere and learning environment of Southeast Asia.
