Learning Chinese (Mandarin)

For many people, Taiwan represents a great chance to study Mandarin or many other aspects of Chinese culture. If you are really serious about learning Chinese, you should probably not teach more than 20 hours a week and expect your Chinese Learning to take 10-15 hours a week in the classroom and 10 more out of class. If you just want to get by a little more easily and impress the family when they come to visit, studying by yourself or doing a casual language exchange should do the trick.

ACI has a select list of experienced and professional Chinese Language instructors that we help pair with foreigners willing to learn Chinese (Mandarin). Contact us today for an excellent private Chinese language tutor referral.

Language Exchanges

Language exchanges (your English instruction for a Taiwanese person’s Mandarin instruction), with co-workers, university students, and other Taiwanese friends, are also popular. Besides the cost, other benefits include: the opportunity to cultivate new friendships and constant “real life” speaking opportunities. The only downside is that since you don’t pay and you don’t have a formal testing system, it is easy to be lazy with language exchanges. You can easily pick up a language exchange just about anywhere in Taiwan.
