In 2019, STUST celebrated a successful and fifth consecutive TEEP program joined by 30 international students coming from all over the world, including Australia, North America, Europe and Asia. The 2019 program featured a summer camp for bringing in more creative ways to enhance diverse international exchanges, as well as a global English language teaching internship to offer hands-on teaching experience at local elementary schools.
In the coming year, the program will focus on bolstering cultural exchanges, while drawing more students and teachers from different countries. The summer camp will facilitate full immersion in the culture and lifestyles of Tainan City, the cultural capital of Taiwan, while the internship, provided in several rounds throughout the year, will offer an intensive teaching and learning experience at the local elementary and junior high schools featuring a sound English learning environment and effective English teaching methods. Interns will be placed in elementary schools to observe and interact with local students while staying with the host families or in the university dormitory. The entire program is funded by the Ministry of Education Taiwan. Expenses like cultural and Mandarin classes, field trips, parks and museum admissions, local transportation, accidental insurance are covered. All the interns have to pay is their airfare and personal expenses.
Students or recent graduates from English speaking countries or with equivalent English proficiency are welcome to apply. We hope our TEEP program will create benefits for international participants, local schools, host families, partner universities of STUST, and all other stakeholders.
