Since 2011, New Taipei City has been encouraging local elementary schools to implement bilingual lessons for their students, by introducing foreign teachers and staff and fostering an international environment for the next generation. This initiative aims to nurture competitive talents.

The project began with five schools and gradually expanded to 38 schools by 2023. Each participating school has its own unique approach to bilingual education. 

It's crucial to understand that this project aims to create an English-learning environment for children. English language acquisition isn't confined solely to English classes but can also be practiced in other subjects and through various means such as English broadcasting, journals, or clubs. It has been observed that students in higher grades have found this approach beneficial.

New Taipei City hopes that through this project, an effective roadmap for bilingual education in the city can be established. In the future, by combining the experience gained with the right policies, a strong faculty, and teaching resources, we aim to enhance the quality of education not only for students but also for educators.
