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 40-45 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. Official certificates issued by the Ministry of Education and National Taiwan University (NTU) will be awarded to students who meet the criteria (see User Manual for details) in order to recognize their contribution (on average more than 99% of the students received the certificates).

You may join the program by simply volunteering or by taking the course 'International Companions for Learning' of two credits (curriculum number: Phys1039 for  NTU;  AAU1072 for NTNU;  3T2257701 for  NTUST). If you are from universities other than NTU, NTNU, or NTUST, you could join the program by volunteering.

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.
