In August, the Huayu BEST Program at Tunghai University welcomed four students at the University of Rhode Island, USA, to our CLC for one-month study. In addition to 15 hours of language classes per week, the students also participated in cultural activities such as drama, tea ceremony, traditional Chinese painting, and sachet making. They also had the opportunity to experience the beauty of both urban Taipei and the mountains of Alishan in Taiwan.

Beyond their continuous learning and absorption of knowledge, the University of Rhode Island students also spent two weeks at Donghai Elementary School conducting an English camp. This allowed them to interact closely with local Taiwanese students, teaching while gaining a deeper understanding of Taiwan through the eyes of these children.

Before departing, the students shared that they truly enjoyed their time at Tunghai and in Taichung. They felt a sense of local warmth and hospitality here, and expressed their hopes of returning to Taiwan in the future.
