I am not sure of posting the news story in Taiwan Politics or Learning Chinese, but it definitely related to Living in Taiwan.
Government Information Office provides scholarship to foreign journalists in Taiwan to learn Chinese. Each approved applicant can gain NT$25,000 per month for a three-month study.
This program stirs up some opposite opinions that some people say it is a way to buy in foreign journalists.
Today GIO especially had a public announcement to clarify the purpose of the program. It said the program is to help foreign journalists to learn Chinese and help they understand Taiwanese culture and politics and environment so that they will have correct news reports for Taiwan.
I have many ideas. But in here, I only think how much a three-month program would help in terms of learning Chinese and Taiwanese culture, politics and environment.
