It's amazing, really, but after studying for years and pumping billions into learning English, the Taiwanese continue to drop down the league table. According to a recent report by EF, Taiwan ranks 9th in Asia and 30th in the world:

TAIPEI--Taiwan ranked ninth among 12 Asian countries rated in an English skills index published in Chinese Monday, outperforming only Vietnam, China and Thailand.
The result was reported by Education First, an international education company, that rated 1.7 million adults from 54 countries globally from 2009-11 based on tests covering English listening and reading proficiency.

Taiwan ranked ninth in Asia and 30th in the world and its global ranking was within the 26th-38th range that represents low proficiency, according to the company's English Proficiency Index.

When will the Taiwanese realise that it is the old antiquated teaching methods that impede the ability of students to get excited about learning English.
