Taiwan gives offers free computer classes for immigrants

The government is trying to help immigrants adjust to Taiwan's high-tech society by offering free computer classes to the country's newest citizens.

Immigration official Huang Jao-liang spoke about the plan on Wednesday:

"Last year we held eight classes and this year we've added four more advanced classes and four practical classes. There is a lot of interesting content, including the use of Office software, mobile applications, social media, handmade robots, and 3D printing," Huang said.

The classes also cover new technology related to animation, AR, and gaming.

The government is also bringing these classes to remote areas through a mobile classroom vehicle. Interest has been high, with the classes' website already attracting 910,000 hits.
