Bilingual education

Bilingual education is now common in Taiwan as a way of reversing the previous neglect of Chinese dialects other than the national language. Although the mainland central government acknowledges the importance of local dialects they are several steps behind bilingual education due to the continuing efforts to establish putonghua as the national language. Many of the Chinese languages are therefore disappearing at an alarming rate although small-scale efforts are done to prevent them from being lost.
