No 'Try' Classes For English

Viewed 2780 times 2017-10-29 18:32 |System category:News

Any professional teacher knows that a student can't 'try' a class and know what the class is about it. In English training, it takes years to develop the skills and knowledge needed to master the language. Usually, it takes 3 years for our students to become good enough at using English in order not need translation in the class. Yet, I still have people wanting to come and 'try' a free class. I don't allow it.

First, if they can know whether my system is good or not based upon attending one class, then, they must have already mastered English. They would have to already be an expert and really not even need any class. How can someone judge an English training system that requires several years by attending one class? You don't have to be too intelligent to know that it is impossible.

Second, any parent who wants to send their child to an English class should be asking one question. That question is, "What has been the results of other students who have studied with you?" They are smart enough to know that you can't ask about how fast their child is going to learn. I honestly don't know how fast a child can learn because, learning English requires more than an excellent English training system and a highly professional teacher. It requires the student and their parent to get deeply involved in the child's English education. 

A parent who understands education and is serious about their child learning has already determined what they are willing to put into their child's learning and education. You can buy a book and never read it and it will do you no good. It isn't the author's responsibility to come and read it to you and make sure you understand it. A competent and professional teacher knows their teaching brings maximum results. They are simply looking for the right student and parents to support that student to do what is required to learn. The teacher provides the instruction, platform and resources; the student must take those and learn.

Third, a teacher who has committed to education is stable. They are also highly confident of what quality of student that they can produce. They don't have the need to give a 'try' class. It disrupts the class for the other students who have already paid and committed to the class. No professional teacher will allow anything to get in their way of giving their students the very best training and instruction for every class that they give.

If you encounter a teacher or training school that allows you to 'try' their classes, then, I recommend that you should look elsewhere for a more professional and qualified teacher. Find a teacher who produces results. Find a teacher that is stable and committed to your child's success. When you do this, you will find the success that you want for your child.

    if you take the factors of sweatshops and real estate bubbles out of the  equation, china's economy is by no means that big. china's economy may appear impressive on numbers, but is of quite poor quality. on per ca pita basis china is and will remain to be one of the poorest countries on earth. it really does not make sense to say if china will dominate the world or not.
