Bilingual education has been increasingly popular in Taiwanese education system. After some city governments started promoting bilingual education in primary and secondary schools, the Executive Yuan announced the 'Blueprint for Developing Taiwan into a Bilingual Nation by 2030'. This policy reinforced the importance and feasibility of bilingual education in formal schooling. This study explores the practices of three junior high schools in Taipei City that are pioneers in implementing bilingual education. The aims of this study are: 1. analysing the bilingual policies at central and local government level to explicate the ideas, concepts and approaches of bilingual education in Taiwanese context, 2. exploring the implementation of bilingual education in Taipei City. It is highly expected to develop local model of practicing bilingual education. The findings of this study could offer feedback to the current bilingual policies.
