Taoyuan Deputy Mayor Yu Chien-Hwa hosted the municipal meeting on October 23. After listening to the report of the Education Bureau's "Promotion and Prospect of Taoyuan's Innovative Bilingual Schools", he said that after Taoyuan upgraded to a municipality, it is the first city in Taiwan to promote the "Innovative Bilingual Teaching Project". Until now, there are 8 bilingual schools in Taoyuan (2 junior high schools and 6 senior high schools), employing 22 foreign teachers. The total number of foreign teachers in Taoyuan is 83 and the student–teacher ratio is the highest in Taiwan. In the future, Taoyuan will gradually promote the weekly curriculum in innovative bilingual schools, including arts, sports, and comprehensive field. At least one-third of the courses will be taught in English. Through immersive teaching, a better language learning environment will be created.
