On or before arrival in Taiwan, students initially enrol for one semester (3 months) or one year. One-semester program will provide them with basic conversation skills needed for every day living in Taiwan, and which can be developed further during continued periods of study.
Students who study Mandarin for 10 hours a week are entitled to visa extensions in order to continue their studies. These extensions will be granted up to two months at a time, for a maximum total period of 6 months.
