"As cousins, best friends and current roommates in Taipei, Taiwan... this blog chronicles the everyday happenings of our (incredibly exciting) lives, providing us with an excuse to talk about ourselves, an opportunity to look busy when we need to, and more importantly to remind us of the jokes we keep forgetting."

Kuolai English Wilderness
"The Kuolai English Wilderness Camp is located on the lush mountainside of Kuolai, above the Peishin River, in an ideal setting for nature discovery. The Kuolai English Wilderness Camp curriculum will involve the surrounding landscape and will include walks along the Peishin River, introductory river education, hikes along local mountain trails, outdoor camping, and much more.
The Kuolai English Wilderness Camp curriculum will also include other relevant outdoors topics such as First-Aid, knot-tying, orienteering, tent assembly, and more. Also, the Kuolai English Wilderness Camp will have a Low Ropes Course which will combine the elements of team building and trust, with a physical and mental challenge, while using only English, forging an unforgettable experience for young minds.
After the fun day of learning English in interactive classes the Kuolai English Wilderness Camp staff will provide an entertaining evening variety show where staff and students will perform skits, games, and songs. Afterward, the students will be put to bed, where one of the staff will provide an evening English bedtime story. Each day will be packed full of fun and English learning, while simultaneously providing an excellent outdoor education in addition to valuable teambuilding and peer bonding exercises.
Over the course of five days, the Kuolai English Wilderness Camp students will learn more than 300 new English vocabulary words from our native English speaking staff. Lastly, on Friday morning, before returning home, the students will perform their own variety program for their friends and family, demonstrating a culmination of the numerous things that they learned during their week at the Kuolai English Wilderness Camp."
