I’ve read quite a bit now on studying Chinese (Mandarin) in Taibei (No, I don’t live there… yet). So far, the more attractive options, for me, are:
CLI (Chinese Lang. Institute)
TKU (Tamkang U, Chinese language center)
MLC (Mandarin Learning Center, Chinese Culture U.)
“Why”, you may ask? Well, as far as I can tell
all these places accept students at the beginning of every month and the terms are 2-3 months long
with the standard 2 hrs a day 5 days (10/wk) schedule which meets the visa requirements.
CLI is the cheapest… only 4500 for 2 months, and the others are cheaper than TLI, Shi da, MDN or MTC.
One other question, do any of the Mandarin schools teach with Hanyu Pinyin instead of Bo-Po-Mo-Fo?
Please rate these schools for me, if you’ve gone
to any of them or have heard anything about them.
Best wishes… and thanks for all replies.
