  • About the Department

       The Department of English Instruction is dedicated to the education of elementary-level English instructors. To produce skilled instructors for that end, the department trains its students in the four most basic language skills—listening, speaking, reading, and writing. In addition to these basic abilities, the department also cultivates its students' professional knowledge of education and childhood instruction in English.

  • Department History

Under the former Taipei Municipal Teachers College, the department was known as the Department of Foreign Languages; the department changed to its current form in 2000. The department currently provides undergraduate programs and master’s degree programs (begun in 2004). Small class sizes in the undergraduate section give students and instructors a great opportunity to interact and learn; small groups are also used to teach basic English skills to students of different abilities and needs.
