First Buxiban-themed Buxiban opens in Lingya District

Just six weeks after arriving in Taiwan, recent college graduate and Marine Communications major Carole Littleman welcomed the first class of students at the newly-opened “Boo! Xiban”, an after-school program to help children ages 5-12 start their own buxibans. “I’m not really sure what I’m doing here, but the curriculum is solid.”

The conveniently-located cram school is just a few blocks from Kaohsiung’s famous Dream Mall, which means that parents can enjoy a world-class shopping experience at stores like Timberland, Muji Muji, Citizen, and Poya while their children study for 3-5 hours each night, preparing them to become the next titans of Taiwan entrepreneurship.
