IIT Ropar has launched a Taiwan Education Center on its campus, in a bid to promote education and cultural relations between India and Taiwan. The center will also promote Mandarin (Chinese) language among Indian students and faculty to facilitate better understanding and cooperation between higher educational institutions of Taiwan and India. Therefore, in order to achieve the above goal, IIT Ropar in collaboration with Taiwan Education Centre has designed a ‘Basic Oral Chinese Conversation’ program.

We will demonstrate how to speak day-to-day life simple sentences and learn to have basic conversations. After learning modern conversations, we will learn simple conversations for shopping and self introduction. Also, we will learn basic grammar and sentence rules. Interactive sessions will involve Culture, Poems and Songs.
