Taichung's mild climate year round.
Taichung is generally regarded as having one of the most agreeable climates all throughout the year. It's not as muggy and hot as the south in summer and is entirely different from Taipei with its seemingly eternal drizzle, its bone chilling winters and oppressively hot summers. Besides that, Taichung is rarely hit by typhoons and there are comparatively few rainy days.
CNN Report also brings you more idea about Why Taichung is the most livable city in Taiwan.

It has been 45 years since the Feng Chia night market was first established alongside our beloved university. Defying all entrepreneurial predictions of doom within a decade, Feng Chia night market not only survived, but has flourished into the binge-hot spot of Taichung city. Stalls number in the hundreds and passersby throng in the thousands. As a matter of fact, according to a recent report, around 25,000 customers, mostly young adults, visit the place every night.
Feng Chia Night Market is the second best night market in Taiwan in terms of the quality of food and products sold. You'll find a spectrum of food from finger food to international cuisine and products of popular demand.

Must-try at Feng Chia night market:
Have you tried any of these? Trying everything in the night market is an adventure itself and will tell you a lot about Taiwanese culture.
Around the World
We average around 250 students a quarter. A lot of people like to inquire if we have a lot of students from their country. Most of you might be looking for a low number and that's what most language centers will tell you (don't be fooled). Our Center has a diverse student body from around the world. But regardless where they're from, they are all prepared and dedicated learners. Look on the bright side, you'll have fellow students to communicate with and help you settle down during your first quarter. Just like you, most students here would prefer not to use their own native tongue. So there's no worry.
