Taiwan universities accelerate the development of bilingual education with EnglishScore

Taiwan has been at the forefront of education’s digital innovation for many years.

The Department of Information and Technology Education, a division of the Ministry of Education (MoE) in Taiwan, is dedicated to providing digital solutions to make education accessible to everyone – regardless of location, or ethnic background.

To make students more employable in the global workplace, the government’s Bilingual Nation 2030 Plan is working with universities to help make half of graduates from participating institutions bilingual before 2030.

In line with this mission to democratise learning and improve the employability prospects of students in the global job market, EnglishScore is partnering with many universities across Taiwan to help students and staff develop and prove their English proficiency with a convenient digital solution – whether that’s for placement, graduation or for hiring new staff to the faculty. Furthermore, EnglishScore is now officially recommended by Taiwan’s MoE as a digital learning product.

In developing the Bilingual Nation 2030 Plan the MoE also collaborated with the British Council to better understand the current status of Taiwan’s bilingual education and provide a baseline for future planning and implementation strategies. In the plan, the Ministry explains the need for accelerating the development of bilingual higher education before 2030:

Students are faced with rapid globalization and digital technology, as well as intensifying competition with young people from neighboring countries. To secure good jobs and incomes after graduation, future university students in Taiwan will have to be able to keep pace with international developments in their field of expertise, communicate and collaborate with professionals from other countries, and even work in markets worldwide in line with the deployment of Taiwanese industries. All of these challenges will require a high level of English proficiency.

Here is a selection of the universities in Taiwan that have joined EnglishScore’s Approved Partner Programme.
