Since its foundation, the Language Center has provided Chinese language training to students from more than sixty different countries. LC students come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some study Chinese in order to prepare themselves for future careers in scholarship, business, mission work, and so on. Others are professionals already working in Taiwan (e.g., foreign teachers employed at the university) or China-related occupations. LC students also include overseas Chinese and foreign students planning to take Taiwan's Joint College Entrance Examination, recipients of the Taiwan Scholarship, and exchange students of Fu Jen University
