This study aims to explore northern Taiwanese parents’ perceptions of NESTs and NNESTs. Two hundred and ten Taiwanese students’ parents living in Taipei or New Taipei City participated in the present study. A questionnaire survey designed by the researcher was distributed. The results show that, in general, the Taiwanese parents prefer their children’s English education being taught by NESTs, however, as for learning the areas of listening, speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, and grammar, the parents think aural, oral, and pronunciation skills are better taught by NESTs, and grammar is better taught by NNESTs; however, the parents have no preference as to who is better to teach reading and writing skills. Furthermore, the results also indicated that the Taiwanese parents think NESTs and NNESTs both have their advantages and disadvantages, thus the parents expect the English education can be collaboratively taught by NESTs and NNESTs to improve children’s English learning effectiveness. This study might provide MOE and English educational institutions some suggestions and thereby enhance local English teachers’ quality and teaching quality.
