ICLP is the only program to study at if you're fully committed to learning Chinese. I believe it's the teachers that set ICLP apart from the other language programs in Taipei. They demand all of your time and attention while you're at school, and they push you to keep work harder, to constantly work at getting the tones right, memorizing the vocabulary, enunciating, using proper grammar, etc. This program is not for the weak at heart or mind -- it's an extremely exhausting and intensive process but the end result is that your Chinese will be the dramatically better for it (even if it is at the expense of your English).
