Taiwan Hostfamily Program
If you, as an international student, would like to have an inside view of what life in Taiwan is, at the same time getting to know more about the politics, history, economy and other aspects of Taiwan's society, then you should certainly consider participating in the activities organized by Taiwan Hostfamily Program.
The Taiwan Hostfamily Program aims to provide an environment for overseas students so they can "Know Taiwan, Experience Taiwan", by having students stay with host families in Taiwan. This will have a positive effect on the language learning and cultural experience of overseas students in Taiwan, while also promoting understanding of Taiwan internationally. An atmosphere of multiculturalism can be formed as a result of bringing Taiwan host families and overseas students together.
