Dear Parents:

The Tainan City Government is now establishing English as the second official language of Tainan City. We hope to help our children become more internationally competitive in this time of intensifying globalization.
This year the world celebrates the 150th birthday of Beatrix Potter, author of The Tale of Peter Rabbit. To join this global celebration and to encourage people to learn English, this summer the City Government is holding the 2016 Tainan English Reading Festival.
We hope to rouse children's interest in learning English through the English Reading, Sing up in English, and Peter Rabbit's Story Time activities. Encourage your children to join these events, take up our missions, and earn prizes!
The family is the best place for learning English. To help you put this to best effect, we are also arranging for celebrities and experts to deliver a series of talks on making it fun to learn English. These talks can help you understand how to best use picture book and online resources to nurture your children's English ability in daily life. You can visit the 2016 Tainan English Reading Festival website to find more information about these activities, and learn about some of the e-learning resources we recommend. Make the most of online resources to take your children through a fun-filled world of English learning!
In addition, Tainan's 43 public libraries have purchased the full set of Peter Rabbit books and the newest children's readers published by Ladybird Books. Our libraries' rich collection of English books is a treasure trove for English learning, so please help your children to make good use of it.
We earnestly invite you to join us and put our best efforts together for the future of the next generation.

Sincerely,
Office of English as the Second Official Language,
Tainan City Government
