The Strengthening of Education for National Languages and the Establishment of National Languages Committee
The Ministry of Education has continuously implemented both the promotion of national languages and characters, and the establishment of language learning resources, for example: continuously maintaining the electronic dictionaries of the national languages, undertaking reviews of characters and orthography of the national languages, regulating and organizing the standards of character pronunciation, encouraging the review members, and implementing the Minnan language qualification affairs. The Ministry of Education has combined the resources of private organizations and other units in order to enhance the value of diverse languages, and to jointly promote activities concerning the national languages.
In addition, the Ministry of Education revised the Regulations of the Establishment of National Languages Consultation Committee, in order to fortify the resources for promoting the national languages, alter the National Languages Consultation Committee into the National Languages Committee, and strengthen its organization. Through the establishment of the National Languages Committee, the related consultations and operational suggestions of the national languages’ policies, research, and promotions can consequently be offered. The National Languages Committee is the interdepartmental communication platform, which guides and decides each item of the national languages policies.
