The Chinese Language Center (CLC), established more than twenty years ago, is nationally acclaimed for our teaching quality as well as excellent facilities and instructional aids. The International Building in which the CLC is located, is set on a hillside overlooking the serene river bank. It is a well-facilitated modern building with six floors worth of cozy classrooms, a computer lab and a library, all equipped with good lighting and air conditioning. Our small library contains a collection of more than 2,500 books and magazines, as well as over 500 audio/videotapes on Mandarin language and culture.
The CLC offers a substantial number of non-credit language courses for international students and overseas Chinese students. All faculty members at the CLC are highly trained professionals with years of experience in teaching Mandarin as a second language. The CLC maintains a teacher to student ration of 1 to 8 to ensure individual attention is received while learning the language.
In addition to language courses, the CLC offers a variety of cultural workshops, such as Chinese Calligraphy, Chinese knotting, paper cutting and traditional handicrafts. These interesting workshops give students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Chinese culture. In case you do have budget concerns, the CLC also offers a few classes free of charge, yet the seats for such courses are relatively limited and are reserved for regular program (full-time) students only.
The CLC encourages our students to make full use of NCCU and CLC facilities, such as the university health service center, computer center, fitness center, indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and other sports facilities, as well as the well-stocked central library. The CLC computer room with high speed Internet access and a quiet reading room are also available during the CLC office hours, which are Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm.
