CET Taiwan

Gold Standard for Language Learning

Teachers with a worldwide reputation for excellence. One-on-one instruction plus small group classes. If you want to challenge yourself and see unbelievable results, you couldn’t make a better choice. But don’t take our word for it. After you’ve covered a year’s worth of Chinese in one term, you’ll see why ICLP has been the gold standard for decades.

Substantive Internships

Do lab research for the Institute of Forensic Medicine. Gain experience in international marketing at Beyond Media Global. Or dive into media as an intern for The China Post. Whether you’re interested in the high-tech sector, politics, or the environment, we can land you an internship in the private, civil, or government sector. Make connections, build your résumé, and improve your language skills in the workplace.
