In this article, the author attempts to recall the evolution and influence of the language policy in Taiwan from the first stage, 38 years of the Dutch colonial period by analyzing from the emerging social linguistics perspectives and also observing colonial linguistic angles. By observing the administration and the missionary movement during the Dutch colonial movement during the Dutch period, research of the development, as well as the changes, of language policies will be conducted; the reasons underneath will be investigated, and the difficulties and conflicts will also be analyzed. From these, one will be able to summarize the impacts of language policy implementation. By analyzing the three areas of language and writing, language education, and Taiwanese-Dutch colonial experience, one can clearly state that multilingualism, language policy, and educational policy during the Dutch colonial period have formed and preserved valuable language and teaching materials. ＂Language＂ has a central position in education, and which language is used as a teaching language, in fact, is the first problem encountered in language policy. The colonists used language and education policies in order to change the language ecology. Even those in power achieve or safeguard their ruling superior position by using the same means. Through the research and analysis in this article, we expect to find references from our experience of history, which can be used for constructive discussions on policy formation in related issues nowadays.
