The Good, the bad, and the ugly

CIEE CBPE is an extremely rewarding program if you plan on taking easy classes while experiencing Taiwan as a foreigner. Compared to the US, classes are much easier. The downside is that most of the classes you take, especially when taught in English, are filled with exchange students so you basically get very little interaction time with local students other than a few cultural ambassadors that CIEE assigns to you, and even then they are not obligated to spend time with you. If this is the kind of study abroad you would like, Taiwan is a beautiful COUNTRY that you should seriously consider applying for.
