February 06, 2024 Unforgettable
A wealth of memories, better language skills, and a greater appreciation for different cultures - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned so much about Taiwan, it's history, culture, and people. I got to live and adjust to a new international city. My Chinese skills improved so much. Overall I just gained confidence from being able to navigate new situations on my own. Definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I learn how to interact with Taiwanese people and the culture that exists there. It was definitely worthwhile trying new foods. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
May 31, 2023 Worthwhile
being abroad taught me to value my time and how I spend it. It taught me a lot of life skills that I don't think I would have learned otherwise. Overall it was a very worthwhile experience. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained language skills (surprisingly, mostly in the area of reading comprehension). I gained adaptability, a greater understanding of Taiwanese culture, a stronger sense of cultural relativity, and new friends. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

January 30, 2024 最好的留学经验
I got a lot more cultural insight into cross-strait relations and US-Taiwan perceptions from people my age, as well as a lot of confidence in my Mandarin speaking abilities. Totally worthwhile, if anything I wish the program was longer. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I learned how to live more independently and became more self-sufficient. I travelled by myself for the first time while abroad in Taiwan. - Colgate University View Entire Review
I gained friends, language proficiency, confidence - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My abroad experience was definitely worthwhile. I think, outside of an opportunity to immerse myself in the language, I gained a better understanding of another country's culture, language and history. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
