One of the long-lasting and meaningful international partnerships of Truman State University is that which it has with Zen Del High School in Changhua, Taiwan. For years, Zen Del has sent students to Truman for a four-week summer language and culture immersion program on Truman’s campus.
We call it: Taiwan at Truman. 我们称它： 台湾在杜鲁门
Students spend most of their day Monday-Friday, studying the English language in engaging exercises with one or more Truman faculty members and supporting preceptors drawn from the Truman student body. In the evening and on weekends, students are involved in exciting activities that enable them to meet everyday Americans, visit historical and cultural sites, and even do some shopping.
从星期一到星期五学生大部分的时间都花在与一到两位的杜鲁门大学的老师和杜鲁门学生组成的助教学习英语。 晚上和周末， 学生会参与非常有趣的活动，这些活动会让学生认识当地的美国老百姓，参观历史文物和文化景点， 还去逛商场。
Students visit Truman in alternating single-gender groups – male one year, female the next. A wonderful group of 11 young men visited Truman in the summer of 2018. A group of 10-15 young women is expected in 2019.
