A language test center in Taipei yesterday said that it is working toward offering language proficiency tests for Southeast Asian languages.
The Language Training and Testing Center said it plans to introduce authorized tests for Southeast Asian languages, as it has done for the Japanese and Korean languages.
The largest foreign language test center in the nation is collecting data and coordinating with the authorities in Southeast Asian nations to obtain accreditation to administer the tests, research and development head Jessica Wu (吳若蕙) said.
Encouraged by the government’s “new southbound policy,” the center began offering Vietnamese language classes earlier this year, but has not yet been accredited to administer proficiency tests in that language, Wu said. [FULL STORY]
