There is a growing demand in the United States for learning the world’s second-largest language, Mandarin. To meet this demand, the Taiwan Center for Mandarin Learning (TCML) was officially opened on September 12, 2021. The enrollment targets mainstream society individuals over 18 years old who are interested in learning Mandarin and about Taiwanese culture.
At the Center, students from the Tampa community learn Mandarin using traditional character writing, and also learn about the customs and culture of Taiwan. TCML aims to promote a deeper understanding of Taiwan, along with its spirit of freedom and democracy.
美國人對於學習世界第二大語言的需求日益增長，為滿足此一需求，本學習中心於2021年9月12日正式揭牌營運，招生對象為 18 歲以上的主流社會人士。
Tampa Taiwan Center for Mandarin Learning offers a full program for adults over 18, from Beginner to Advanced level. We use not only the digital materials from “Huayu World”, but also textbooks provided by the Overseas Community Affairs Council (OCAC), “Let’s Learn Mandarin”, “Speak Mandarin in 500 Words”, and “Speak Mandarin in 1000 Words.” Our program allows students to choose from writing systems such as Bopomofo and Pinyin to learn listening, speaking, reading, and writing; we use mp3 audios to help with student pronunciation.
The Center aims to provide a lively language learning environment that values “freedom and democracy while respecting cultural diversity”; we enhance student learning with extra cultural classes. Beyond learning the language, students are encouraged to participate in our cultural courses, including calligraphy, Erhu, Ocarina, cooking, lion dance, drums, fan dance, diabolo, Go, and so on. The program is designed to keep students engaged with the language and enhance their appreciation of the beauty of cultural diversity.
