Languages are an essential asset of human being. A multi-languages society reflects features of multiple cultures, therefore, it is valuable to preserve languages. Nevertheless, in Taiwan, a lot of native languages suppressed by the Speaking-Mandarin policy have facing a crisis of language vanishing. Notwithstanding the government has pushing native language policy after democratization, it is still difficult to remove negative images of native languages. Consequently, this article aims to alleviate the crises of native languages. The article claims that there are some existing phenomena caused by pushing the Speaking-Mandarin policy, including language difference between elegance and vulgarity, language difference among generations, language class differentiation, language regionalization, language difference among places. That has restricting seriously the development of mother tongues. However, it seems that the native language policy so far has failed to address the crisis, so the government should review the nature of problems and consider that families, schools and communities are put in policy networks in order to construct concrete and feasible policies of native languages.
