[Tainan, Taiwan, June 13, 2016]
The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program, an overseas language and cultural immersion program for American undergraduate and graduate students, kicked off at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, on June 13.

A total of 20 American students are participating the 8-week program. Most of them are first time visiting Taiwan, some of them have never been to Asia before.

An opening ceremony was held at the university on the morning of June 13 to welcome all the students from the US and mark the new beginning of their journey of language and culture learning.

NCKU President Huey-Jen Jenny Su extended her warm welcome to all the students said, “Welcome you all to spend your summertime here. Let us know if there’s anything we can do to facilitate your study here, making the best out of your summertime.”

She also said, “Working closely with your study partners is highly recommended. They can be your eyes to see the college life in Taiwan.”

Min-Ling Yang, Director General of the Department of the International and Cross-Strait Education under the Ministry of Education, said in her opening remarks that the program had been conducted in China previously.

"In addition to arranging Chinese language courses, we will also offer classes on Taiwan's culture, society, politics and economy. We call it immersion learning, especially because Tainan is a city rich in culture. The students will be able to experience bonafide Taiwanese culture," Yang said.
