Understanding the Desirability of English Language Education in Taiwan
Tseng, Chao-Ling
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v9 n1 p83-86 2008
The popularity and desirability of English language education has become somewhat unbeatable in Taiwan. This article seeks to understand the multiple threads of reasoning systems that come together to constitute and sustain the desirability of English learning. It conceptualizes that language education is more than teaching and learning a new/foreign language. Language is intertwined with the sphere of culture. Thus, it is hoped to encourage an alternative perspective for rethinking English language education in Taiwan. (Contains 5 notes.)
