    Taipei to set up two ‘bilingual’ elementary schools (2017/04/20)

    Taipei has decided to take a new approach to boost the English language skills of the city's students. Beginning in September, two public elementary schools will be upgraded to "bilingual" status, which means that much more of the school's curriculum, including physical education, will be conducted in English.

    This is English class at Dongxin Elementary School, complete with a full-sized model of a rhinoceros.

    Students read along with the teacher and answer questions. The class desperately wants to learn English because Dongxin Elementary will become one of two "bilingual" elementary schools in Taipei starting this September.

    English Teacher
    They're very good students. They always get their work done, and they ask questions and they're very respectful to you and they're very eager to learn. They like to learn.

    Once Dongxin becomes "bilingual," first graders who only had to take two English classes a week before the change will have eight classes a week - or about a third of the total class load - in English.

    Cheng Sheng-yuan
    Dongxin Elementary School Principal
    The eight classes a week will include the original 2 English classes as well as three classes centered on specific themes. There will be two phys ed classes in English and one class where we use English picture books or practice scenarios from daily life.
    The "bilingual" schools will cost about the same to attend as other public elementary schools, a point which should make them a big draw with parents eager for their children to learn English.

    轉型雙語小學 東新.文昌兩校9月試辦

    為了提升學童英文實力,台北市首度推動公辦公立雙語學校,從9月起,選擇東新、文昌兩所國小試辦,轉型為雙語小學,每週英文課節從2節增加到8節,佔總節數的3分之1,就連體育課都用英語上課。

    這是東新國小的英文課,搬進一整隻的犀牛模型。

    學生們與外籍老師你問我答,從上課鐘響起,每個人都要說英文,因為從9月開始,東新國小和文昌國小,將是台北市唯二的雙語小學。

    [[外籍老師]]
    “他們是很好的學生,總是非常認真,積極問問題,而且他們都很尊敬我。每個人都喜歡學英文,主動去學習”

    相較其他國小,小一學生原本一週只上2節英文課,兩間升格的小學未來將增加到8節。

    [[東新國小校長 鄭盛元]]
    “這8節課包括原來的2節英文,再加上3節做主題性式的生活課程,另外還有2節的體育,還有一節課我們會做英文繪本,或是結合我們英語情境中心”

    升格雙語小學,學雜費卻和其他公立小學差不多,新學年度勢必讓不少家長搶著擠入校門。
