(10.4.2014) After reading an article from the Taipei Times about the loss of Taiwanese language ability in the younger generations, and reading an article from a history book discussing previous language politics and policies during the Martial Law period, the students listened to a speech from a teacher from Tainan First Girls High School (TNGS). Ms. Judy Huang shared her experiences about educating her two children in their mother tongue, Taiwanese. She also discussed the concept of "cultural imperialism" with the students and how it has affected Taiwan over the past 100 years.
