  • The program is rigorous, if students wish to travel or go sightseeing, they should plan to do it either before or after the program. 

    For the last two years, Flagship students have received intensive language instruction as part of ICLP's summer program and have all found that their spoken, listening, reading and writing abilities have improved by at least one sub-level. This is because ICLP was founded for the purpose of training and developing the oral discursive ability of America's academic elite. Since ICLP was founded in 1962, 75% of its alumni serve or have served in academia and the other 25% are distributed across legal, business, and government professions, serving as high level executives. It is clear to see that advanced language ability contributes to professional success. 

    ICLP is situated on the Main Campus of Taipei's National Taiwan University. National Taiwan University is ranked the number one university in Asia and 87th on world university league tables, and is equipped with ample academic resources. By coming to ICLP to study you can not only greatly improve your Chinese oral expression, but also enjoy Taiwan's abundant, diverse, and exquisite culture. We have specially formulated a 2016 Summer Course for Flagship students to provide an even better study and living environment. It is as follows:
