Around the World

We average around 150 students a quarter but in Spring 2008, our numbers jumped to 170 students. In this same quarter, we welcomed our first Italian and Latvian student! We're happy with the size of our student body, it allows us to pay more attention to each and everyone of you. If we have 1,000 students, there's no way for you to get what you want and for us to know you're around!

A lot of people like to inquire if we have a lot of students from their country. Most of you might be looking for a low number and that's what most language centers will tell you (don't be fooled). Our Center has a diverse student body from around the world. But regardless where they're from, they are all prepared and dedicated learners. Look on the bright side, you'll have fellow students to communicate with and help you settle down during your first quarter. Just like you, most students here would prefer not to use their own native tongue. So there's no worry.

Here's list of countires represented this quarter (Spring):

 – Poland – Russia – Latvia – UK – Italy – France – Belgium – Switzerland – Austria – Netherlands – Norway – Indonesia – Japan – Korea – Vietnam – Thailand – India – Philippines – South Africa – United States – Canada– Panama – Brazil – El Salvador

Ang Language Center ng Geng Chia University ay isang lugar kung saan nagkakasama- sama ang iba’t-ibang kultura at iba’t-ibang lengwahe ngunit gamit ang natutunang Chinese dito kaya naming kausapin ang isa’t-isa, ito sa aking palagay ang pinaka nakakatuwang lugar. Ang mga tauhan sa Language Center ay friendly at matulungin, para na rin silang pamilya namin.

Ang mga kurso dito ay nakakatulong upang lalong maintindihan ng mag-aaral ang kulturang Chinese, maliban sa loob ng silid aralan, mayroon ring kursong kultura at field trips, ang mga ito ay nagbibigay ng pagkakataon para sariling maunawaan ng mag-aaral ang kultura.

逢甲語言中心是一個文化融合的地方,有不同國家的同學、不同的母語。可是藉由在語言中心學的 文可跟彼此溝通,這是我一直以來覺得有趣的地方。語言中心的行政人員都很友善,熱心跟他們的感覺就像一家人。語言中心的課程會讓學生更深入了解中國文化除了教室的課程還有文化課、校外教學這些都使學生親自跟文化接觸
