Fu Jen Language Center is one of the oldest non-degree
Chinese language learning centers in Taiwan. It was founded in 1964, under the direction of
the then president of Fu Jen University, His excellency Paul
Cardinal Yu Pin, by the Society of the Divine Word (SVD), to address the
need for the foreign missionaries to learn Chinese. It was then
“Chinese Language Center”.
To promote exchanges between Eastern and Western
countries, to enable the foreign students in Taiwan to learn Chinese and
to allow the local students to take short term courses in foreign
languages, in 1969, with the approval of the Ministry of Education the
center was renamed as “Language Center”.
