As a follow up on our previous topic about the government's plan to have a majority of Taiwanese speak the English language fluently, we have invited Jenna Cody from the US who is well-versed with the Bilingual Nation 2030 plan, having been invited by the Taiwan government as a consultant during the plan's formulation.
In this episode, Cody corrects the wrong interpretations of the media and even of some government officials about the Bilingual Nation 2030. For starters, she said that the title of the plan is a misrepresentation of its whole goal.
Cody is a Delta-qualified teacher trainer and Business English trainer with a Master of Education (MEd) in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the University of Exeter. She has been in Taiwan for more than ten years as English Instructor, Corporate Trainer, and IELTS preparation instructor. Jenna is also a contributing writer for Ketagalan Media.
