Madhav Nalapat on Taiwan issues....

I don't have time to blog today, but an Indian academic, Prof. Madhav Nalapat, who recently visited Taiwan put his thoughts on the web....

“Another corollary which needs attention is the relative neglect of the English language in Taiwan. A 21st century Anglo-sphere would include not only the Churchillian model of “white” countries but also India, certainly Singapore and hopefully in the future, Taiwan, should Taipei abandon its obsessive focus with a single regional language and embrace the international link language as enthusiastically as its interests mandate.“ (Madhav Nalapat)

Taiwan has not neglected English. It's just that ESL is mysteriously difficult.
