Im planning on staying in Taiwan (Taipei) for several months later this year to learn chinese (or at least to start learning it).
Can anyone recommend any good courses, or good private teachers (instead of or maybe as well as a course).
I’m more or less a beginner, except I know a few words and phrases from my Taiwanese friend, and can recognise some characters.
For a private teacher, I would be looking for proper structured lessons, rather than just “language exchange”.
As I will be in Taiwan to learn the language (not to work), I’d be wanting to do a fairly intensive course during the daytime. My main priority is learning to speak and listen to the language, though some reading/writing would be good too.
A couple of university courses have been mentioned to me: the Chinese Cultural University and the National Normal University. Does anyone know anything about these?
I am in Taiwan for a few weeks now, to check out courses and possible teachers, so any recommendations would be very much appreciated!
Many thanks for any help.
