I’m considering studying at the International Chinese Language Program (ICLU) at Tai Da this fall. But it costs a lot of money, and getting a scholarship is hardly a sure thing…
does anybody have any advice? Is it worth the cost (for 20 hrs/wk classroom instruction, half with a tutor and half w/ a max class size of 4)? What’s the best way to improve my odds of getting one of those elusive MoC scholarships? Any other advice for not being reduced to penury in my quest to gain better knowledge of Chinese?
(NB: I’m currently a high-intermediate speaker from the States who’s somewhat rusty from having not spoken much the last couple years; had four years modern and two classical in Uni. Have previously studied in Taiwan, several years ago over a summer, at NTNU CCLC.)
Any advice, if any, would be welcome.
