Ministry policy misguided

My letter to the Taipei Times was published!

I was dismayed to read that a Ministry of Education official said that since”English is not a native language of the Philip-pines and India, Filipinos and Indians speak English with non-native accents” (“Ministry cool to teachers from India, Philip-pines,” Jan. 21, page 1). The inference is that these countries were not suitable places from which to hire English-language teachers.”
