Taiwan Connect Program

Teach English to Chinese-Speaking Middle-School Students in Taiwan

Truman State University’s Taiwan Connect Program is one of the innovative ways you can apply what you learn in the classroom to endeavors that prepare you for the challenges of an interconnected world. In addition, the Taiwan Connect Program gives you a unique experience to add to your resume.

When you participate in this fun video-chat program, you get a chance to interact with Chinese speakers abroad to practice your language and teaching skills without ever leaving the Truman campus. In weekly 25-minute sessions, Truman students Skype English lesson plans to elementary school students thousands of miles away in Changhua County, Taiwan.

Truman students and the elementary students discuss the lesson and share information about their cultures which translates into valuable learning opportunities for both groups.

We get the opportunity to learn a different side of a culture that we may not have seen before. It really is neat to see the impact that we are making and how much that means to students in Taiwan.
