National Taiwan Ocean University (NTOU) , located in Keelung, a major port city situated in the northeastern part of Taiwan, is one of the leading universities in marine science and ocean technology throughout the world. Furthermore, with an impressive seascape near the campus, the beauty and tranquility makes it a perfect learning destination. Therefore, NTOU has a unique and scientific research background.


As one of sub-organizations in General Education Center at NTOU, Mandarin Learning & Education Center (MLEC) was founded in 2014. This Institute is committed to promoting English learning as a social inquiry within communities of academic and professional practice. In addition to language courses, the MLEC offers a variety of cultural workshops, such as Chinese Calligraphy, canoe experience, paper cutting and traditional handicrafts. These interesting workshops give students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Chinese culture. We also encourages our students to make full use of NTOU facilities, such as the university computer center, fitness center, swimming pool, tennis courts and other sports facilities, as well as the well-stocked library.


Adjusting to a new life in Taiwan, confronted by a foreign culture, can be a monumental task. Chinese Language Center offers various consultant services for international students.
