    Harvard’s Chinese language summer program relocates from Beijing to Taipei (2021/10/13)

    Harvard University's summer Chinese language program in Beijing is relocating to Taipei, amid "perceived unfriendliness" from China. Starting next year, about 60 Harvard University students will be coming to National Taiwan University for eight weeks of Chinese-language classes. And NTU and Harvard aren't the only ones. The Ministry of Education says that 10 other universities in Taiwan have similar partnerships for Chinese language instruction with 21 universities in the U.S.

    Students from Harvard University take a stroll on the ancient city streets. Every year, the university sends a group of students to China for an immersive Chinese-language course. But starting next year, the Harvard Beijing Academy will be no more, as the institution is moving to Taiwan. The program will be held in cooperation with National Taiwan University and renamed Harvard Taipei Academy. About 60 students will come to Taipei for eight weeks of language courses at NTU. International students in Taiwan say learning Chinese on this side of the strait is a good choice.

    In Taiwan you can learn traditional characters. We learn about Confucius and Mencius.

    Taiwanese people are very helpful. And there are a lot of places to travel to. The food is also great. That's why I wanted to come to Taiwan.

    Harvard's summer program is relocating. According to a U.S. media outlet, the director of the program has stated the move was motivated by a "perceived lack of friendliness" from the host university in Beijing. For instance, the students in the summer program were not allowed to hold a party or sing their national anthem to celebrate U.S. Independence Day on July 4.

    Countries in Europe and America are shutting down their Confucius institutes. They can no longer accept China's dissemination of CCP ideology under the cover of Chinese language teaching. They don't want this kind of education. So Taiwan should seize this opportunity and make space for itself in the arena of international education.

    Since 2004, Harvard Beijing Academy has been operating in China for a total of 17 years. Now, it's closing down amid changes in U.S.-China relations, presenting Taiwan a chance to fill in the gap for Chinese-language teaching.

    Education minister
    Already there are 10 universities all over Taiwan, including NTU, National Taiwan Normal University and National Chengchi University, which have Chinese-education cooperation programs with 21 universities in the U.S., including Harvard University.

    Taiwan's Chinese language programs attract more than 10,000 international students each year. Now that an additional program with Harvard University is about to start, it's only adding to Taiwan's attraction as a destination for Chinese language learning.
