Established in 1973, Columbus Chinese Academy has a long history of providing traditional Mandarin language education and introduction of Taiwan’s diverse cultures to the local Taiwanese community. The school also actively works with the mainstream community to promote Mandarin learning to the general public.
Columbus Chinese Academy established the Taiwan Center for Mandarin Learning in September 2021. The purpose of the center is to publicize Taiwan’s multiculturalism, enhance the awareness of traditional characters, and establish connections among traditional cultures, highlighting the importance of traditional characters to cultural heritage. The center aims to extend the teaching scope of the school to encompass adult classes, in order to stimulate a deeper understanding of Taiwanese culture in American communities and deepen the recognition of Taiwan as an indispensable member of the global village from a cultural perspective.
The center currently offers courses three days per week - Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Each course is taught by one of the center’s three Mandarin teachers. Weekly progress of the lesson content is the same among the three classes. Participants can select which class to attend according to their individual needs. In addition, to provide increased learning opportunities, we encourage students to participate in multiple course periods. Mondays and Wednesdays are arranged for online courses, and Saturdays for concurrent in-person and online courses.
The center uses “Common Chinese Sentence Patterns” and “Let’s Learn Mandarin” as main teaching materials. The goal is to build students' ability to conduct simple conversations, including self-introduction, daily expression needs, asking basic questions, and basic listening and speaking skills. Subsequently, the center will introduce more complicated character writing, recognition, and reading. The course will also integrate Taiwanese cultures, including history, festivals, and folk activities. The experience of Taiwanese daily life and cultural activities are also arranged.
