What ICLP Offers

ICLP provides a year-long language program in a Mandarin-speaking environment which upholds much of its traditional Chinese heritage and culture within the framework of a modern democratic society.

ICLP enables students to achieve broad and independent competence in spoken Chinese and to develop reading skills needed for academic research or professional use. ICLP has an audio-visual room, reference library and computer lab with full Internet access for the use of students. Situated within the campus of National Taiwan University (NTU), it enjoys the benefits of a central location in Taipei along with access to the full range of NTU's academic, extracurricular, and health resources.
ICLP History

The International Chinese Language Program (ICLP), the world's premier institution for the instruction of both modern and classical Chinese, was established in 1962 to cater to the needs of Stanford University students for Chinese Language Studies. Since then, it has offered intensive language training to thousands of students from more than 30 countries.

ICLP's earliest history begins in 1961, with Stanford University's planning of a Mandarin training center on the campus of National Taiwan University in Taipei. The original program was designed to meet the stringent research and educational needs of Stanford University students. In 1963, the Inter-University Board was created and the official name became the "Inter-University Program," commonly referred to as the "Stanford Center." Owing to the quality of the teachers and materials, as well as the intensity of instruction, this program quickly became the world's premier center for the intensive study of Mandarin Chinese, training many of the world's current diplomats, academics, and business leaders.

In 1997, NTU assumed full administration of the program, and the official name was changed to the "International Chinese Language Program," or ICLP, at National Taiwan University. The International Chinese Language Program maintains the traditions of small classes and intensive instruction that have made it the standard against which other Mandarin training programs are measured. Proud of our past, and looking towards the future, the ICLP faculty and staff warmly welcome students of all backgrounds to join us in the study of Chinese language and culture.
