ABOUT the program
Starting in 2011, Taoyuan has been trying to expose their students to the English language. To build an international environment for the next generation, native speaking teachers were hired and bilingual courses have been introduced in several Junior High Schools.
The project began with merely five schools, but gradually expanded to 24 schools in 2019. Each of the participating schools has their own system of implementing English in the courses. Some schools offer extensive English classes, other schools use English to teach certain topics like art, literature, physical education, etc.
This project aims to provide an English learning environment for the students. Learning a new language should not only happen in English class. It should be practiced in different settings and different topics.
