The population structure of Taiwan has undergone a tremendous change in the past 20 years because of transnational marriage. According to the statistics provided by the Department of Household Registration Affairs of Interior Ministry, the foreign spouses have been increased up to 385,358 persons. Among the figures, China brides and grooms occupy 64.88% while Vietnamese takes 19.7%. For those married Taiwanese and lived in Taiwan for a long period, to accommodate themselves with Taiwan circumstances is the most urgent lesson that they have to face. The author would like to help the government draw up relevant policies of Taiwan Culture Recognition for those foreign spouses through the finding of this thesis.
This thesis has chosen the New Immigrant Learning Center in Taoyuan County as the target group. The population proportion of foreign spouse in island-wide Taiwan differs. But according to the statistics provided by Department of Household Registration Affairs of Interior Ministry, there are about 40 thousands foreign spouses in Taoyuan County and the nationality does not vary too much when comparing to island-wide Taiwan. Therefore, the thesis is said to be a more feasible study. In this research, the author do the survey to collect the data from the foreign spouses, and interviewed target foreign spouses and relevant people in order to understand current culture recognition situation of foreign spouses, and to find out the real problems or difficulties they have faced up today when learning and accepting Taiwan culture. Of course, the final purpose is to observe and conclude the present status of Taiwan culture recognition for foreign spouse, and whether they have recognized our culture.
Due to limited research on hand, the author has chosen in-depth interviews so as to collect meaningful and useful analytical information on foreign spouse culture recognition issues. By having in-depth interviews with the foreign spouses, the author can avoid any misunderstanding because of language barrier and subsequently affected the research progress.
After some analysis, the author finds that the longer period those foreign spouses stay in Taiwan, the more they learned about Taiwan. For example, they visit temples, scenic spots and make good friends with Taiwanese people, etc. All of such move makes them getting used to live in Taiwan and enhance their recognition of Taiwan culture.
In this research, the author also discovers that the language courses and courses that help accommodate Taiwan life are still the major foreign spouse policies formulated by the Government. However, the Taiwan government seldom opens up the course which will help the foreign spouses know about Taiwan culture. For long-term perspective, this will result in ignorance of Taiwan culture recognition and it will possibly reduce our Nation Power. Therefore, the author urges Taiwan government to reinforce the understanding of Taiwan culture for foreign spouses such as adding courses for Introduction of Taiwan Architecture, Art, Music and Religion, etc. In the meantime, we also need to educate those foreign spouses to recognize Taiwan as their Home, and encourage them to enjoy many activities held up by the Taiwan government. The author believes this will surely bring up the current culture recognition of foreign spouses to another level.
