Share The Daunting Challenge of A Foreign Teacher In China
MichaelM 2017-3-11 04:41
I came to China in 2011. Nearly 6 years ago. I had no plans of staying here longer than a year. I was newly divorced and really had no reason not to come and experience this wonderful place. After being here only two months, I saw the huge obstacles of students trying to learn English. It was very easy to see many of the mistakes and reasons why they often spend 10 years or more and never really get past the ability of having even one simple conversation. I knew I could help. Students c ...

Share Common English Mistakes
MichaelM 2017-3-8 10:52
I'm sure I've written on this subject in the past. But, after 500 blogs and several other news outlets that I write for, I can't remember when. This past weekend, I was a judge once again for the national CCTV English competition. I was reminded of the common problems that Chinese English students make in speaking English.

This morning, I posted something on Facebook that was from a journalist in Hong Kong. I don't remember his name nor who he writes for. I really didn't take it all that seriously. However, when I posted it, there were many who got offended and started defending our President-elect, Donald Trump. I deleted the post after almost 100 comments were posted there. The op-ed piece was talking about the fact that Trump is a billionaire, flies in his own jumbo jet, wanted to put Hilary in pri ...

I came to China with plans of staying only one year. In fact, I stayed there 5 years. And, I would be there now if not for the law that requires a foreigner to leave for 6 months after remaining there for 5 consecutive years. Why am I in China? Why will I choose to come back as soon as I can? The answer is easy. I am obsessed with helping Chinese students reach their goals and realize their dreams. My part to play in their quest for success is, giving them the best English training ...
