Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Fifteen high schools students are learning about Taiwan not from a textbook, but from real life experience thanks to Alabama State University.
They're traveling to Taiwan as apart of ASU's Alabama Mandarin Language Immersion Program. The students say they're excited about the chance to visit Asia and learn more about the foreign culture.
The students will spend 6 weeks in at the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, the nation's capitol.
Three of the students are from Montgomery and they plan to blog during the entire trip.
