    Hey there,
    I'm thinking of going to Kaohsiung to learn Chinese in NSYSU, but as I see it is a bit far from city centre I would like to ask a few things:
     - how long should it take to the city centre (using public transportation)? does the MTR pass nearby? 
     - I heard air pollution is quite bad, is it the same in the university area or just at the centre?
     - Anyone who can say anything about the CLC in NSYSU here? have seen some general review saying it is OK, but can anyone detail? 

    Thanks in advance

    The pollution close to the university is not as bad as the pollution in the city, I live in a small village close to the university, it's called Chaishan and it's a lovely place to live. Kaohsiung is a big city, so it would depend on which part of the city you lived in, as to how far away it was.

    Hello Leedc,

    me and my husband are new in Kaohsiung, we live in Zuoying District. I like your family picture profile and would like to make friends with you and your family. My e-mail address is imelda.czysz1@gmx.de, mobile phone number is 0909  925 953. You might as well put up your own school, I've observed that there are quite a number of people looking for teaching positions ;). I'm just kidding! Anyway, please contact me if you are interested to get in touch. Thanks!

    Best regards,

    Hi, depending where on campus you live - it may take 10-20 minutes to reach the tunnel on foot. From there you can take a bus (the bus stop is just across a parking lot from the tunnel) or walk another 10 minutes to mrt Siziwan (Orange line start/end station). From there to let's say Central Park it takes about a 20 minutes ride. You can check it with Google maps - it's quite reliable.
