This is a national program under Ministry of Education. It provides an opportunity for international students and local students to match with kids from (mostly countryside) schools of all 22 cities in Taiwan, including the islands. The program activities include both weekly Skyping (about 40 minutes; fitted to the availability of the students) via internet and fully-sponsored field trips for meetups at the schools. Each international student will be paired up with a local (Mandarin-speaking) student who will assist with the preparation and communication. Two official certificates, one by Ministry of Education and the other by NTU, will be issued to students of sufficient attendance in order to recognize their contribution.

For international non-degree students (e.g. exchange or visiting students), you may join the program by simply volunteering or by taking the International Companions for Learning of two credits (curriculum number: Phys1039 for NTUAAU1072 for NTNU). For NTU degree students (e.g. most local students), you may take the compulsory course Service Learning (III) Social Service of zero credit (curriculum number: StuAct1008)

Either to volunteer or to take the course, you have to first  Register New Account  at this website, and then  Login  the account to apply for joining the program of the current semester. If you participated in this program before, please DO NOT register a new account again, and in such a case you should use your existing account to directly  Login  for the application of the current semester in order to possess higher priority for the choice of schools.
