Teacher perceptions of the primary English language program in Taiwan: From the outside looking in
Crawford, Jane C. (2001) Teacher perceptions of the primary English language program in Taiwan: From the outside looking in. In Applied Linguistic Association of Australia Annual Conference, Canberra University, Australia.
This article compares the attitudes to foreign language education in primary schools in Taiwan and Australia and explores the impact the global status of English has on attitudes in Taiwan. Despite these differences, however, many of the issues reported by classroom teachers in the new Taiwanese program are similar to those reported by Australian teachers where languages other than English have a much more contested place in the curriculum.
