On 27 May, 2011, 49 students in the Language Center’s English Honors Program visited the new Taichung City Hall as part of their annual field trip. The highlight of the trip was a 45-minute Q & A session with Taichung Mayor Jason Hu (胡志強). As this was part of our all-English program, the session was conducted in English as well, and our students asked the mayor some challenging questions about public safety, the Feng Chia night market, and the city’s readiness for an new influx of tourists from mainland China. Mayor Hu responded to all questions and directly, and also explained his vision for Taichung’s future and his culture-first development plan. At the conclusion of the session, the Mayor spent some time posing for pictures with our students. I’m sure all participants agreed it was rare and rewarding experience.
