為因應我國加入WTO後國際化的政策需求,並執行行政院『挑戰二○○八:國家發展計畫-E世代人才培育計畫』,提升國家整體競爭力,邁向全球化的國際社會接軌及提升本市國民中小學之學生外語能力,塑造全民英語環境,建立E 世代終身學習的社會環境及使用外語和網路資訊能力,故藉由引進外籍英語教師,期盼透過教育,全面提升本市學生的英語能力,實現推展全民學習英語的理想,以落實政府提升英語為官方語言的目標。

新北市政府(原臺北縣政府),為了有效增加學童的未來競爭力,以及縮短因城鄉差距、經濟狀況、家庭背景所可能造成的英語程度落差,打造了具備「浸潤式」(immersion)的全英語教學與學習環境-新北市英速魔法學院(New Taipei City English Wonderland)。

有別於國內已有的情境主題式模擬英語教學和短期英語體驗營,新北市英速魔法學院的「浸潤式」(immersion)全英語教學與學習環境,提供了學童一個不用出國就能享受宛如「出國遊學」的真實體驗,並使學童有如置身於「英文海、中文島」的環境錯覺。

爲了因應為數眾多引頸期盼能參加新北市英速魔法學院的新北市學童,新北市政府於民國97年9月成立以「自然關懷」為主軸的乾華校區、99年3月成立以「營隊體驗」為代表的闊瀨校區、同年6月成立以「繽紛趣學」為主題的光復校區、100年7月以「國際遊學」為特色的興福校區,以及本次即將於101年11月加入以「人文探索」為發想的龍埔校區。

目前新北市政府成立的英速魔法學院共有五個校區,依據成立先後分別為:民國97年9月成立以「自然關懷」為主軸的乾華校區、99年3月成立以「營隊體驗」為代表的闊瀨校區、同年6月成立以「繽紛趣學」為主題的光復校區、100年7月以「國際遊學」為特色的興福校區,以及101年11月成立以「人文探索」為發想的龍埔校區,各校區自97-99學年度開始陸續加入營運,分別提供本市五年級學童到校區免費進行3天2夜的美式英語營隊體驗。

The goal of our program is to elevate the competitiveness of all of our citizens, rising to the challenges and opportunities of our country’s engagement in the WTO while simultaneously implementing the Executive Yuan’s “Challenge 2008: Country Development Project – E Generation Talent.” Our work is to foster communication between cultures across continents. To enhance the language skills of our city’s elementary school and junior high school students. Cultivate an English environment for all. To build up a social environment of life-long learning for the E Generation and hone the skills of foreign languages and internet information. To these ends we bring native speakers of English and international modes of learning to our city’s students. This way we can realize the ideal of extending learning English for every person, and implement the government’s long-term vision for English learning in our city.

The New Taipei City Government (originally the Taipei County Government), created an immersive all-English teaching & learning environment: the New Taipei City English Wonderland. The mission: to effectively strengthen children’s future competitiveness, as well as bridge the gap of English skills among urban-rural populations, multivariate financial situations & family background.

Different from situational/topical simulations and short-term English classes, the immersive all-English teaching & learning environment of New Taipei City English Wonderland provides a realistic 3-day study abroad experience for without leaving the country. Being in an English Sea while on a Chinese Island.

To realize these goals the New Taipei City English Wonderland was established at Chienhua Campus in September, 2008, with a theme of Environmental Protection; Kuo Lai Campus in March, 2010, with an ethos of “a rich and diverse, fun learning environment”; Xin Fu Campus in July, 2011, organized around “International Study Tour”; and Long Pu Campus in November 2012, which takes “Humanities” as the theme.
