TAIPEI -- A scenario-based educational facility for English learning began operations on a trial basis at Wenguang Elementary School in southern Taiwan's Chiayi County, providing rural children with an entirely English-speaking environment.
The European castle-like Chiayi Wenguang International English Village was remodeled from a school building in 2011 at a cost totaling NT$64.6 million (US$2.15 million). The lion's share of the expenses was paid with private donations, according to the school.
