NTU Students Teach English to Syrian Refugee Children

Best Practices

The Refugee Network Taiwan launched under the National Taiwan University (NTU) Leadership Program is teaching English online to Syrian refugee children. The goal is to infuse the children with the courage, skills, and confidence to better their lives in an environment with few resources. The programme has drawn English teachers from Taiwan and overseas to teach basic English skills to Syrian refugee children, encouraging them with personal concern and support, thereby realizing the ideal of social responsibility. The Refugee Network Taiwan was the brain child of Yoshin Wang, a political science major. Bea Mae Estur from Syria, a participant in the course, said she hopes to improve her spoken English by taking the online course and interacting with more people. Another student, Mustafa, told the volunteers he hopes to learn about different fields through the course and give back to society in the future. Yoshin was encouraged to help refugee children find employment opportunities using online resources.
