Taiwan is one of the many countries which caters to after school classes to enhance and strengthen students’ skills in a particular subject. As a matter of fact, this special class booster is held in cram schools, widely known as Buxiban in the country’s language. Intensely, the number of such institutions is surprisingly high.
If one visits a certain area in Taiwan, noticeably large banners are waving in front of Buxiban’s building introducing different course programs such as Math, Science and, of course, English.
Focusing on the most customary skill enhancers for English, most cram schools offers TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC, GEPT, etcetera, equipping students to be prepared for the foreign examinations. Alternatively, some special kinds of English learning methods like the Callan Method are also offered.
On the other hand, Taiwan Community Centers which are located in the many cities also welcome every interested learner to study various courses; art, dancing, yoga, playing traditional instruments, Japanese language and English as well. Such centers are a government organization which aims to accept and help diverse students regardless one’s ethnicity and race.
Apparently, foreign teachers always have a place in Taiwan’s heart whilst idle moments are seemingly discouraged.
