○○ Training Overview ○○




This program is conducted as part of the “Go Global Japan” project that has been funded by MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) since 2012. Through intensive English language training conducted by native English instructors, the three-week program focuses on four skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. It aims to enhance students’ ability to communicate in English.



The program is designed to improve students’ practical English language proficiency. About 20 students chosen from an internal University selection process are dispatched to Ming Chuan University, Taiwan.  They attend English courses offered by Ming Chuan University.


[Program description]

The program boasts of an excellent curriculum, which is the first of its kind to be accredited by Middle Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) among Asian Universities.  All lectures are conducted in English by native English instructors.

Students are divided into 2 groups; A and B based placement tests, and then appropriate training provided.

Ming Chuan University students majoring in English and Japanese language studies participate in the classes as Teaching Assistants (TA's), in order to facilitate communication-practice among students. They also accompany students during meals, after classes and on tours to the suburbs at weekends.

There are two cultural tours during the three-week language program period to allow students learn about Taiwanese history and culture. Staff from the department of Applied Japanese and TA's accompany the students.

Welcome and farewell parties are held to promote cross-cultural exchange.
