Feature of Curriculum

  Both language and literature are our focus. For language study, Hakka language is the core of our study, and gradually, we will include the studies of other Taiwanese dialects, other Chinese dialects and languages. Our institute encourages students to actively participate in Hakka language studies and conferences. We hope we could become the key place for Hakka language studies, and could cultivate qualified research workers. We will unite with worldwide Hakka study centers, and play decisive role in Hakka study. For literature study, we will aim at Hakka folk literature, and then traditional children’s books, traditional poetry, traditional records, etc. Presently, there is no institute of Hakka literature study domestically or overseas. We hope we could set up the direction for Hakka literature study, gather up the related materials, and become an independent Hakka study center.
