Share More intellectuals work in the Forum
SEARU 2019-6-17 16:32
This morning the news program on the radio told me: Recently President Ximentioned that newspaper authority should take effective measures to attract more intellectuals to make the media business get better for the public! In the forum I have met with many teacher bloggers whose articles were quite nice those could reflect the reality of the true China. But it is a pity thatmany of the talent writers had only worked here for a short period. I miss them very much ...

Share Why I Live In China
MichaelM 2019-6-11 14:48
If you read my blog often, you know that I came to China in 2011. My intention was to stay a year, experience the culture and return to my comfortable life in America. However, once I got here and realized the desperate need for quality English education, I felt that I could do something to change the fate of many Chinese children. Now, I've been here off and on for about 7 years total. It has been quite difficult to live here as a foreigner because, well, not everyone is so nice to for ...

Share Big English Mistake
MichaelM 2019-6-9 08:26
I've taught nearly 5,000 classes since I arrived in China in 2011. I've had several thousand students that range in age from 5 years old to 80 years old. I've taught numerous students who are now studying at top universities in America, Canada and Australia. I've trained 350 Chinese English teachers for 12 hours a weekend for 6 weeks in Henan and in Sichuan. I've taught many more Chinese teachers in weekly classes. I've even written a book about learning English. There are two very common mis ...

What does it take to get a high score?
I've taught English in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, off and on for the past 8 years. I came here with the intention of staying only one year. When I saw the desperate need for quality English education, I knew that I could help. So, I've stayed. Right now, we are in the season of the Gaokao. Tens of thousands of high school seniors have been cramming for months, if not years, for this once in a lifetime exam. In late August, students who desire to study abroad, will be taking the next offering ...

Share Did China 'Steal' American Jobs?
MichaelM 2019-6-7 14:52
This is an assertion that Trump made during has campaign and now, during his presidency. To rational, intelligent people, we know that this isn't true, because, in fact, it would be impossible for Chinese to 'steal' American jobs. American companies started outsourcing manufacturering jobs to many countries like China, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh and others, many years ago. Why did they do it? The answer is simple. These countries could produce consumer goods at ...

Share Why Bill Gates Gives Away Money
MichaelM 2019-6-7 03:50
Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and most American billionaires have committed themselves to giving away 90% or more of their money in their lifetime. When asked why he would give away his money, Gates replied, "The pursuit in life is not about money. It is about making a difference in the lives of others and making an impact on humanity." This is why he travels to impoverished regions of the world and directly gets involved in the lives of the less fortunate. Charity (donating money) is a tra ...

Share Americans Don't 'Go Dutch'
MichaelM 2019-6-6 16:09
I just read a blog on here that stated that 'it is well known that Western people go Dutch.' It further stated that Western people don't entertain or invite others to meals at restauarants. I'm not sure who told someone these things, but, it isn't at all true. Americans love inviting others to restaurants for meals. In my nearly 6 decades of living, I've never once 'gone Dutch.' In fact, I've never witnessed this in America. Americans love inviting others to a meal at a restaurant and do ...

American Gaokao - The Pursuit of High Scores
It is that season again when students almost go insane with anxiety as they go headlong into the most important exam they'll ever take. America has its own version of the college entrance exam, or, as I've heard many call it, the Meiguo Gaokao. In fact, there are two exams that are quite popular, but, the SAT is the one that is most well-known. As opposed to the Chinese Gaokao, it is only about a 3.5 hour exam (the length varies depending on whether a student chooses to take subject tests and ...

Share Looking Flowers around Green Spring Lake
dovexu 2019-6-3 18:39
Looking Flowers around Green Spring Lake The mountains around a valley were in deep green. The mountainous drive way contains “ three thousand ” turns. Attic bridges across a stream connect different parts of villages. It was surprised to see modern urban buildings appeared in those villages. The silk clouds in the blue sky formed long white strips. Azaleas in a hill extented far away to the sky. ...

Share Two Systems, Two Standards?
J.E.Overington 2019-5-30 19:06
Aristotle and the Han: truth without false, good without bad, because we have standards in society, and we keep the peace with the people across the river since they are useful. The western banks have unstable lands, forcing wildebeasts into the waiting crocodiles, so we build reclaimed land to interfere with nature again. The question is: How to have the good without the bad? How to keep the peace among extremists? Improving a slandered reputation by working well is easier. How to im ...
