Government seeks foreign language guides


#1

They want speakers of Malay, Vietnamese, Thai and Indonesian.

It does not matter whether the aspiring guides are Taiwanese, new immigrants or their children, or other foreigners, it said.

I can say no problem, let’s eat, sweetie and how much n all of those languages.


#3

There’s more, and not just New Taipei.

Tour guides who can speak any of the languages would receive NT$2,000 (US$63.12) per tourist per day, the bureau said.
Subsidies can also be given to translators that the travel agencies hire to assist the tour guides.

Down: Mainland Chinese.
Up somewhat: Hongkongese, Macanese, North Americans, Australasians, Southeast Asians, and Taiwanese.
Up significantly: Japanese and Koreans.

To meet the needs of foreign visitors, the Presidential Office Building said it is looking for volunteers with foreign language skills to provide a more comprehensive tour-guide service as it installs a multi-language audio tour system.

I think there’s a comment worth making about this, but I’m not a tour guide, so I’ll just ponder it. :ponder:
