On June 14th, Dr. Randall Nadeau, FSE Executive Director, Shwu-Yih Wang , Deputy Director-General of Education Bureau, Taichung City Government, Dr. Xiang-Ping Ma, Curator of National Library of Public Information, as well as Ms. Sharon Wu, American Spaces Senior Manager, jointly planted a Madagascar Almond tree together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the “Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Program in Taichung,” symbolizing the long-term collaboration between FSE and the Taichung City Government. This event marks a new milestone of Central Taiwan’s bilingual education.
Since 2013, FSE has collaborated with Taichung City Government to promote the ETA program. Each year, there are 10 to 13 U.S. English teaching assistants will join local schools, assisting local English teachers’ English instructions. The program allows both the ETAs and the local students to gain cultural exchange experiences. Furthermore, they also promote the trend of English learning throughout the Taichung city by organizing camping events and conducting “English Learning and Reading Van.”
