Cultural Bridging

When you join BM Homestay Program, you have many options to bridge the culture gap between your background and Chinese culture:

Chinese Homestay


Every weekday you have family dinner with the host family. The dining table is a perfect place where the you and the host family can share and bridge different cultures. On weekends, you are very welcome to join the family trips as well.

Chinese homestay is the best environment to indulge you into a whole Chinese speaking environment. The language barrier reduces itself much faster by living with a native Chinese-speaking family than merely registering a Chinese course. Staying with your Taiwanese host family will give you an insight of Chinese culture.



Rotaract Events


Wherever in Taiwan you choose to join our immersion program, you are entitled to join the Rotaract events. They can be cultural excursions, volunteer services or just fun parties. Most of the Rotaracts are 20s youngsters. Rotaract districts are based in Taipei, Taichung, Tainan and Hsinchu. So BM participants can choose to visit different cities every month.
