Manila, Jan. 15 (CNA) A cultural exchange program organized by Taiwan that provides Chinese language lessons to Filipino students has had positive results, according to the Taiwan Education Center Philippines.
Huang Tse-hsiang (黃澤翔), who is in charge of the program, said recently that the classes have been well received and more than 1,000 students have signed up to attend.
Operated by National Sun Yat-sen University with the backing of the Ministry of Education (MOE), the center was set up in Sept. 2017 to promote quality Chinese language education in the Southeast Asian country, while at the same time offering courses to train local Chinese language instructors.
Courses are currently being offered at Trinity University of Asia in the Philippines, which has forged partnership with the center to promote educational and cultural exchanges between the two countries. [FULL STORY]
