Share Managing People In Your WeChat Group Successfully
MichaelM 2017-5-3 08:02
A lot of people have asked me lately how I manage so many WeChat groups and get my message out to so many people. I'll share a few of the secrets I've found in getting your message out to a lot of people. Presently, I have more than 6,200 people subscribed to my public account and at least 10,000 more in various groups. Some of the groups are my groups. Others are English language learning groups where I've been invited to share my free English lessons. I also create short videos that are viewed ...

Share Luckiest English Teacher In China
MichaelM 2017-4-28 09:14
Every day, I hear people complain about so many things. I am an optimist. I'm also a realist. Will Durant, the very famous American philosopher once said, "History has always been on the side of the optimist. Especially American history. History proved him right." I know it is very cliche to relate a positive attitude to the saying, 'glass half full' (rather than 'the glass half empty'). But, your perspective of life is predictive of what you get from life. I arrived in China on August 25 ...

A few days ago, I put out a notice to my 6,000 plus English students who follow me on WeChat. It was a story that was inspired by one of students, Jeremy Hua. Jeremy started learning English from me when he was in the 5th grade of elementary school. He started in a big class of more than 20 students at the Zhengzhou Affiliated Primary School near the old campus of Zhengzhou University. I really didn't get the chance to get to know him well until 2 years later. By that time, I had created ...

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. I'll share with you several below. 1. Wrong pronunciation of the word, 'usually'. I've heard this word pronounced wrong in Guangdong Province as well as Henan Province. ...

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 ...

Today I'm going to teach about a word that is sometimes used in English, but, is not a good word to use. I teach students who will eventually attend top 100 colleges in America.
