It’s English Carnival time again, which means another taxpayer-funded Chinglish website to promote what a supposedly great English environment Taiwan has.
The site is closer to that for 2006 than the FUBAR one of 2005; but that’s still not exactly good.
The 2007 English environment Theme Park will bring you our great achievements of the energetically Englsih-friendly environment. In the meantime, each outstanding organization of the year will present amazing activities and exhibitions that you don’t want to miss it.
Also, is it really too much to ask that the domain for such sites be a .tw one — or at least a .org, .com, or .info? This year’s site is on a domain for Tonga, of all places.
