  • 更新時間:2018/07/23 11:04:43

The Council of Indigenous Peoples (hereinafter referred to as the Council) today publishes the “One-Thousand Basic Common Vocabularies” of Indigenous Peoples in the official website and testimonial website for indigenous languages. People can download it for free as long as they are available through the Internet. Welcome to make more use of it.

The Council said that the Language Qualification Accreditation Test would be implemented for the first time this year, including five levels of quiz, i.e. elementary, intermediate, high-intermediate, advanced, and best-level. In order to make it easy for candidates to understand the scope of the examination and improve their indigenous language skills, the Council specially invited experts and scholars to slightly modify the “One-Thousand Basic Common Vocabularies” of the indigenous language, which was divided into four levels (including elementary, intermediate, high-intermediate, and advanced levels) covering 16 indigenous languages, 42 dialects and adding basic and high-level vocabularies. Each dialect contained 36 vocabulary categories, such as kinship terms, characters, and identities, etc. as the basic vocabulary of daily life for Indigenous Peoples. Those who are interested in applying for the test should step up to read the “One-Thousand Basic Common Vocabularies” and related indigenous language learning materials and download learning resources from the E-Land to improve the efficiency of indigenous language learning and the frequency of indigenous language use.

The Council also stated that, in order to respond to the “Indigenous Language Development Act” implemented for three years, since 2020, the indigenous people taking part in special examination for civil servants, test for Indigenous Peoples, and test for study abroad with public expenses should obtain the Indigenous Peoples Language Proficiency Certificate. Therefore, the Council encouraged the indigenous people interested in participating in the exam to test their language skills as early as possible through examinations, so that the indigenous language ability would become a competitive advantage. The indigenous language would be passed on by joint efforts to inject new vitality and opportunities to inherit the endangered indigenous languages as well.
