二官辦簡介

The Office

組織定位

第二官方語言專案辦公室(簡稱「二官辦」)於推動第二官方語言政策任務中扮演監導、規劃與管考計畫執行成果之角色。於政策推動初期,二官辦廣泛諮詢國內外專家學者建議與積極拜會各行各業,於前置徵詢作業後,臚列可能策略及確認可行做法,擬定第二官方語言行動計畫,針對短、中、長程分別設立年度目標、期程目標與整理目標。

計畫內容以「營造英語友善環境」及「全面提升英語力」為兩大主軸,由二官辦追蹤各局處之工作進度,引進、結合內外部資源以協助各局處推動計畫,並視實際推動狀況,進行每兩個月一次之滾動式修正與檢討。除扮演監督與管考角色外,二官辦亦配合市府重大政策及活動,發想、推出及執行許多創新之專案計畫。

The Office of English as the Second Official Language of the Tainan City Government (OEASOL) serves as the chief supervisor, planner, and evaluator of the Tainan City Government’s policy to adopt English as the second official language. Since the initiation of the EASOL policy, OEASOL has been actively seeking advice from scholars in various professional fields for this matter; having consulted with experts on the prerequisite mechanisms, the office established a list of possible and achievable approaches to promoting English as the second official language. OEASOL has since drafted specific short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals for various sectors.

The EASOL policy is characterized by two main objectives: to ameliorate the English language environment within the city and to increase English proficiency levels among Tainan citizens. OEASOL is responsible for tracking the progress of all departments in utilizing and synthesizing both external and internal sources to implement the programs. OEASOL staff conduct regular amendments and reflections on the policy in accordance with the status quo. OEASOL also plays a role in significant events and policies conducted by the city government, helping to design, create, and execute multiple innovative projects.

On August 28th, 2014, the Tainan City Government set up the Directions for the Establishment of English as the Second Official Language Office that has been effective ever since. The online recruitment was open to the public in November in the same year. By March 2015, several contract employees have joined the office, which was then officially established and began operating.

OEASOL was initially composed of a director, a deputy director, 7 contract employees, and 1 foreign consultant. Currently, Tainan City Government Deputy Secretary-general and OEASOL Director Lee Hsien-wei, Deputy Director Tien Ling-Hu and 4 other contract employees work at the OEASOL office.
