They're also international students, exchange students from the U. S. But they're on a different programme for me. It's called C i. E. And I and I thought it would be helpful for them to explain a little bit about the program. You could see how it differs from the direct exchange program that I'm here on. So what does the I e. Stand for e O K E stands for educational exchange on actually have, like hundreds of different locations. Countries Andre had to friend focuses so you could go and focus on language and cultural intensity, which is what Jesse is in for Taiwan. Then you could also go to another program, my specific programs called the Communication Business and Political economy. Essentially, what that means is that if you have a focus of those areas, if your majors in one of those areas you're allowed to come to the university and technically be like an exchange student for semester, so you get full access to everything full access to classes as much of the English ones. If you pass a test that pass the Chinese test on your into one of the intermediate Chinese levels, You were able to actually take classes in Chinese, which I think is really, really cool. You likely has a lot of really good English courses to choose from, which actually have a lot of international students, Which gives you a very interesting perspective. So the I c l c. Is the intensive? Yeah, Chinese language and culture program. So we actually aren't a normal jungle student. We have what is called the Chinese Language Center, and we take three hours of language crossed the day there, and it's pretty great, actually. I love the training's like we're center teachers are all really great. Yeah, I think three hours a day is really making me approved your house of intensive way. Have another CIA organized class and I think that is a normal class, but it's very small because it's a little Yeah, yeah. Jon Jon Stewart and but most of our international cause. It's taught in English and are in Taiwan, goes to cross it together. I have four hours of classes on Friday from three hours of classes the rest of days, and it's pretty great. It's 100% Chinese language oriented, which I love personally because I'm trying to major. If your major Chinese air I just really want to get good at Chinese short like condensed period of time. When do you have and then So it's not like a partnership for say, but they just have it on there like your credits will transfer What reason will be approved of this program? So I guess you could call it a partition, but yeah, on DSO This question, I guess, is more for a jest, because Danielle is in the classes that are offered to, like all students here. Do you ever feel isolated by the CIA program because you're not ableto have classes with, like, other exchange or international or local students on campus? So for sure, because we live in Door 10 and the Chinese language center is one flight of stairs away. So I could live my entire life within, like on the eighth of a mile if I wanted to yet, and so that's kind of on the art train across is the building next door to the Chinese language center, so literally, very contained. So that's a really good like point to bring up. So it's kind of personal responsibility, branch out and find people. All international students in the Chinese language center classes, so that's kind of nice. I've met a lot of interaction changes, and then CIA e helps Taipei in particular. They're worried about that, and they're kind of like a sign time of these friends went through. Then you can meet a lot of more a lot more time students, and I think that's the best part. I sound like I'm doing I like Honestly, I didn't know they have that here. Well, that's really great because they don't have anything on the Web site about that because it's not mandatory CIA anything, Okay? I mean, it's a really unique opportunity that not everyone gets. I think it definitely helps a lot if you're someone who is really nervous about studying abroad on kind of want, like a little like up to come Teo your study by location and at least seven. They all adieu on line like messaging that they use, and they're so welcome welcoming and so willing to help you and say, Hey, get lynched the Or, if you want to ask them, uh, they're really, really, really nice on. So this has been a very It's been a difficult transition, obviously, because setting friends always difficult transition. I think it's helped a lot Being able to be end program. Then one night Sergei wants about gender as a whole is that it's super welcoming. There are a lot, and also it's just very welcoming. Tow any a demographic person I have personally found.
