Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language in Taiwan focused on overseas Chinese schools and Chinese education of ethnic Chinese in the past. The 21th century is witnessing an upsurge of Chinese language learning around the world. As early as in 2001, Taiwan government began to encourage Chinese teaching with several incentives as the following: providing scholarship to foreign students, helping universities to set up training center of Chinese language and teacher with subsidy fund, encouraging domestic universities to establish Chinese institutes, perfecting academic organizations and holding seminars, setting up Taiwan education center and expo, popularizing Chinese language test and so on. All these measures maybe effective in a short term. However, without a coherent policy and agency, as well as a lack of combination between publicity and local resources, the promotion of Chinese teaching came out with little result. In this paper, the author suggests to develop a specific Chinese teaching system with Taiwan style by integrating political and commercial and educational resources. It is helpful to cooperate with overseas local groups to provide global Chinese learners with a better environment.
