The Cabinet-level Council for Hakka Affairs (CHA) announced yesterday that in an effort to promote the Hakka dialect, the government will from January offer grants for junior high school and elementary students who pass a Hakka dialect examination.
"The results of the 2009 Hakka certification exam scheduled for Nov. 28-29 will be announced Jan. 15 and those who pass the exam will be eligible for the new incentive," said Minister of Hakka Affairs Huang Yu-cheng.
Noting that only elementary and junior high school students are eligible to the awards, Huang said that NT$1,000 (US$31) will be awarded to anyone who passes the elementary level test, while NT$5,000 and NT$10,000 will be given to those who pass the intermediate and high-intermediate level tests, respectively.
