English education has been one of main educational foci in Taiwan and the solid foundation of the country's economic development and academic improvement as well. While, the acquisition and proficiency of a language is not just referring to mastering the linguistic knowledge of the target language, but also to applying the acquired target language properly in their daily lives. Take the acquisition of our first language, Mandarin as an example. A language acquired shall serve as a tool to express needs, ideas, to communicate with interlocutors properly as well as to learn the knowledge and skills of other subject matters, such as mathematics, science, art, and natural science. In this light, the steering“Immersion English Education Project for Primary and Secondary Schools“ and “Implementation Project of Bilingual Instruction in Some Domains of Primary and Junior High School Education”was established and sponsored by the MOE , aiming to promote and supervise the development and implementation of bilingual education at primary and secondary schools. In so doing, the scope of English education is expanded and students’English fluency and proficiency is enhanced via the interdisciplinary learning contexts of arts, health and physical education, integrative activities.
