Taiwan - towards bilingualism


These 2 pieces of news on consecutive days caught my eye. While the geo-political or economic intent of the move towards bilingualism could be understandable, it seems to be a tall order without a burning macro-environment ( e.g. recent-colony - HK, diverse races - Singapore, etc.). On the flip side, if it succeeds in 2030, there could a price of cultural erosion. I don’t live here anymore, but still travel to Taipei frequently. I am just imagining if i were to travel to Taiwan in 2030, a successfully bilingual nation, what would it look like ? :sweat_smile:
