Visiting Chinese Language Teachers Program

Taiwan Visiting Mandarin Teacher Program

I. Background Information 


Taiwan invites you to participate in an exciting international exchange: The Taiwan Visiting Mandarin Teacher Program.


Through this program, school districts are able to recruit Mandarin teachers from Taiwan to teach at the elementary, middle, high-school levels and universities. A native speaker brings an authenticity and international perspective to the classroom – from which students, parents and educators can all benefit. At a time of growing interest in Chinese language, this is an important opportunity to fill the need for high-qualified Chinese language teachers in schools, or even establish an enriching educational exchange with a school in Taiwan.
