    Objectives of Plan

    The courses are intended to practice English education and, therefore, integrate the “service learning” to provide students with the chances to practice what they learned for teaching and learning going hand in hand. Meanwhile, the courses encourage the students to provide services to children, low-income family children, Taiwanese new immigrants’ children and the physically and mentally disabled, so as to experience the intent of service learning.
