Asia Options Rates MTC as the Best Language Center in Taiwan

Overall, the prestigious Mandarin Training Center of NTNU was rated 8.9 out of 10 and earned the title of the best mandarin leaning center in Taiwan.
Nowadays, many bilingual kindergartens pop up in America and claim that kids can learn English and Mandarin naturally. People around the world have begun taking the mandarin learning trend seriously. The government of Australia have launched the Asian Century white paper and encouraged the mobility of Australian youth, especially to Asian Pacific countries and learn Mandarin. Taiwan is listed as home to one of the important Mandarin Learning Center.
Affordability, location, reputation, opportunity and atmosphere are the five standards in rating these language centers. Mandarin Training Center of NTNU, Chinese Language Division (CLD) of the NTU Language Center, International Chinese Language Program at NTU and Chinese Language Center of National Cheng Kung University are rated high. Among these institutes, MTC is rated the highest due to the convenient environment, comprehensive education teaching reading, writing, speaking and listening. Also, the NTNU campus is a great place to meet new friends which is really important when adjusting to a new country.
