Course Description

This is a national program under Ministry of Education. It provides an opportunity for ALL NTU international students and local students to match with kids from (mostly countryside) schools of all 22 cities in Taiwan, including the islands. The format of the program contains both weekly Skyping (40 min) via internet and fully-sponsored field trips for meetups at the schools. Each international student will be paired up with a local student who will assist with the preparation, communication, and oral translation during the Skyping. 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.

Explanations for the conditions
1. 
Attendance 
100% 
A+: Attend all the pre-arranged weekly Skype sessions. A: Miss one session. A-: Miss two sessions. Fail: Miss three or more sessions. Instead of cancellation, a re-scheduling of the session within the same week would be a solution. Participation of the final field trips for meetups is optional, though strongly encouraged, and may be treated as compensation for one missed session. Missing more than 15 minutes of any class will be considered as a miss.
