Advantages of Studying in Taiwan

Advantages of Studying in Taiwan

Apart from the world-leading schools to be found in the beautiful island of Taiwan, there are many more advantages to studying at Taiwan!

Growing Importance of the Chinese Language

With the rapid development of the Chinese economy, and the fact that China is now the largest country in the world in terms of population of the nation, the Chinese language is gradually catching up to, if not overtaking, the leading role the English language plays in the world. In fact, Mandarin Chinese is also widely spoken in many countries outside of China and Taiwan R.O.C. 

Learning Chinese at a Mandarin-Speaking Country

By studying at a Chinese-speaking country, foreign students can be exposed to the language on a daily basis, thus maximizing the amount of practice they get in actually using the language to survive. It would be much more efficient than simply signing up for a Chinese-language course at your home country. 

Different from the case in mainland China, the population of the island of Taiwan is fairly concentrated with the majority of which being Mandarin speakers. So you need not to worry about meeting people that speaks a completely foreign dialect even in the most remote areas during your stay at the beautiful Formosa. That also gives you even more chances to practice your Chinese speaking and reading!
