The 2016 AID Summer program in Taiwan is a great opportunity for all young Chinese descendants to learn about the culture, language, and to explore the beautiful land of their ancestry. It provided my son Edward the experience he always dreams about—to learn about the land and people where I was born.
This program allowed him to travel to Taiwan not only to teach English to middle school students but also to have the chance to learn the Taiwanese culture and taste the typical Chinese food, in addition to visiting Taiwan's beautiful views and landmarks. It is a very safe and well organized oversea program. I definitely recommend to young people. Thanks for this amazing and memorable lifetime experience.
