I’ve come to decide to return to Taiwan and learn some more Mandarin. I’ll apply for the Huayu scholarship so I’ll need to chose a place to learn soon.
I’m interested in recommendations and personal experiences to help me make a decision!
I went to a school in Taichung last time. I liked the school there enough but I’d prefer trying somewhere new (and I’ll be honest the location sucked ass)
I’m not too keen on Taipei - it’s a cool place to visit but felt too busy for me (although the areas around Tamsui and 象山 seemed nice enough).
Places I’m thinking of and my reasoning include:
-the schools in Hsinchu, as I’ve heard they’re quite good - but does that translate to their chinese centres, and whats it like living there? More interested in Tsing Hua.
-National Sun Yat Sen university in Kaohsiung - I walked through there and liked the area a lot, and I like the city itself enough too.
-One of the schools in Hualian - for the location more than anything
-Chung Yuan Christian University in Taoyuan - This one stood out to me for some reason (can’t remember though). Also got a friend who lives pretty close by.
So if anyone’s been to one of those in particular, or has any other input I’d be glad to hear about it!
