There are almost 100,000 new immigrants in New Taipei City, and over 33,000 children of new immigrants studying in the city’s junior high and elementary schools. New Taipei City Government Department of Education has compiled multicultural teaching materials, trained language teachers, organized Southeast Asian language competitions and is teaching second generation new immigrants, with the intention of laying the foundation for the New Southbound Policy.

On Tuesday afternoon, the department held an event to launch Vietnamese audio-visual teaching materials. Huang Ching-yi, the department’s deputy director, said that children nowadays like to play on their smartphones and, based on students’ needs, the department has developed a range of online study materials to help teachers and promote multicultural education. The hope is that the audio-visual online teaching materials for Vietnamese language books 1 through 12 will be able to assist the second generation of new immigrants to discover their roots.
