    The Taiwanese pronounce 教 in the first tone (jiao(1)) when it is used as a verb, as in 教書,教課,教學,but in the fourth tone (jiao(4)) when used in a nominal phrase like 教授,教室,教堂。

    当"教"读Jiāo时,表示<动 v.>teach;instruct;读一声时,有“传授”的意思。
    当“教”读Jiào时,表示<动 v.>instruct;ask;order;or<名 n.>religion;a surname。

    读” jiāo"的时候,一般指指导人做什么事(物)Generally refers to guide the people doing the (physical)
    读“ jiào”的时候,一般都是名词形式。Are generally the noun form.

    第一声(jiāo):是个动词,表示把知识传给别人,如:教书、教唱歌、教学生读书。
    第四声(jiào):①多用于与别的字组成一个名词(这种读音最多),如:教父、宗教、教练、教派、教条、教官、教具、教师、教科书、教案、教材、教室、教授、教义、教育等。②作为动词,如:教导、教正、管教、请教、受教、因材施教。
