Share President Xi: The World's Leader
2017-9-13 06:37
In a recent report reflecting an interview of the former, number one advisor to the U.S.'s president, Donald Trump, Steve Bannon revealed, what I believe, the most important perspective that President Trump holds regarding other world leaders. The report said, " President Donald Trump respects Chinese President Xi Jinping more than any other foreign leader, his former chief strategist Stephen Bannon said in a speech in Hong Kong in which he also warned ...

Share English - Quote of the Day
2017-8-21 04:37
QUOTE OF THE DAY - Just do it! ~ Nike What does this quote mean? It means, 'take action now'. If you have a dream or goal in your heart and mind, get started making it come true now. Even if it is something small; take action right now. Thoughts and dreams always come first, however, nothing will come true unless you take action on those thoughts and dreams.

Share Please, Don't Embarrass Your Country
2017-8-19 16:58
We all do stupid things from time to time. I know that I've done more than my fair share in my life. If we are honest, we know that we do. Most are not willing to admit it, but, they know. We are all human. The old adage, 'to err is human; to forgive is divine' is still true in these modern times. However, we need to live by certain personal standards that reflect and reveal our own personal integrity and character. I've always said, "You can be a character (a person who purposely does things t ...

Share The Past 5 Years: China's Global Leadership
2017-8-16 19:58
In taking the China Daily survey, acknowledging China's greatest accomplishments over the past 5 years, I'm reminded of what I believe is China's greatest accomplishment. Especially as I see so many things in West unraveling and regressing, China has stepped up as the global leader for the world. China's greatest accomplishment is the global example of true leadership that it is showing, to the world. Why do I say this and why do I believe it is true? Well, I've had the chance to watch fi ...

Share China's Transformative Innovations
2017-7-7 15:45
I first came to China on August 25, 2011. I've carefully watched China transform over the past 6 years. It has been amazing to see the innovation in technology and business. With the opening up in the late 1970s due to the vision and courage of Deng Xiaoping, China turned a corner toward what it is today. I was recently in the thriving metropolis of Shanghai. After arriving there and finding my way to my hotel, I checked in just before midnight. I was exhausted and barely able ...

Share Why Foreign Teachers MUST Have Patience And Be Tough
2017-7-7 14:53
I've survived in China for the past 6 odd years. I was required to sit out 6 months last year due to a law that isn't enforced in most provinces of China. A law that says that foreigners who have worked here for 5 consecutive years, must leave for 6 months. It is rarely enforced, however, here in Henan, it is. Not a big deal. Just had a nice vacation traveling and relaxing in the USA. There are many requirements of character that a foreign teacher here must possess if they are going to have l ...

Share Learning From Life
2017-5-12 08:59
Every situation that you encounter, will teach you valuable lessons about life. You need to observe situations and not just experience them. You need to rationally reflect upon them. Last night, we had a meeting with 5 parents who had shown interest in our classes. We set the time to meet at 6 p.m. All of them except one, were on time. The late parent called 7 times. We didn't answer because we didn't want to disrupt the meeting. I gave a short, informal presentation of our classes. I tal ...

Add me on WeChat WeChat ID - BigTEXZZ 4/14/17 Good morning Another common idiom allows you to express a since of surprise or disbelief. You hear something that is quite surprising and you want to give an emotional expression about it. Using ‘emotional speech’ really makes a non-native English speaker sound more fluent and natural. Idiom ‘you've got to be kidding’ ‘you must be kidding’ Explanation : "Kidd ...

    Ture but most Chinese return to China Plus if your have not mastered English a degree from Harvard with a 75% average means nothing. Now if you end up in the top 10% of your class then by all means it is better. But really how many Chinese end up in the top 10% in any USA university? Maybe 1 out of 10,000.If you do not want to return to China then yes Harvard Degree is better.
