Add me on WeChat For FREE Daily English Lessons WeChat ID - BigTEXZZ 4/12/17 Good morning. I realize that a lot of non-native speaking English teachers will tell you that the secret to speaking English fluently is to learn to make ‘connected sounds’ between two words. They will tell you that when you see two words together like ‘next to’, that you shouldn’t say the last ’t’ in next and the first ’t’ in to. They will tell you to say the ’t ...

Share Seven Simple Things That Will Change The World
2017-5-2 09:28
One thing that I absolutely love about most Chinese people I've met is that they work at keeping peace. As in most cases, this comes from the top down. President Xi Jinping is a man who loves and works for peace. I watch him closely and believe that his character and demeanor is what we need in every world leader. But, you may not be a leader. You may not be powerful. So, what can you and I do to bring about positive change in the world? Here are seven things that I believe that we can ad ...

Join me on WeChat Free Daily English Lessons WeChat ID - BigTEXZZ 5/1/17 Good morning Today is Motivational Monday. It is also Labor Day in China. So, most people are having a day off. Happy Labor Day to everyone. I heard a quote once that said, “Go where you are celebrated; not where you are tolerated.” ‘Tolerated’ means ‘to put up with.’ It is not something that is pleasurable or desirable. I would say it this way, “Go where people like you and are ha ...

  • Avoid This Kind of English Training 2018-3-15 05:05

    Liononthehunt: A very interesting phenomenon is that most students in Eastern Asian countries, in particular, China, Japan and South Korea have all notoriously under ...
    In my experience, what holds back English education in China is that their is no foundation of learning to speak the language. Speaking is fundamental and foundation in language learning. It is rare here in China. I find it interesting that most Chinese primary and secondary schools do not teach Chinese grammar. Yet, they focus 90% or more of their time teaching English learning grammar rules. An effort in futility from my experience of teaching more than 4000 students and thousands more students.

  • Chinese Students Will Conquer English 2018-2-8 01:21

    Until the Chinese change the methods used to teach English by Chinese teachers and get rid of 99% of the poor foreign teachers. Maybe 5% of the Chinese will master English.Maybe. Taliking how and actually doing it are very different.
