National Dong Hwa University responded to those requests from international and overseas students who have high expectations for Chinese language learning, and due to the government’s policy on the promotion of Chinese language learning, together with nurturing qualified and excellent Chinese teachers, in August 2013, NDHU established the Chinese Language Centre (hereinafter referred to as CLC). Our core goals are to enhance the knowledge of Chinese language with profound understanding of Taiwanese culture, to provide an excellent Chinese learning environment to exchange students as well as international students and to the community in general.

The Characteristics of CLC:

The rich ecology of the landscape, the cultural diversity, the genuine development of the area, and the static way of Chinese learning pairing with outdoor education makes Dong Hwa University an exceptional and unique environment for Chinese language and culture learning.
