Share Luckiest English Teacher In China
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 ...

Share Big Problem With English In China
2017-4-26 07:25
I often read anything that I can find about English education. I especially pay close attention if I find something about English education in China or other parts of Asia. I recently ran across an article that discussed how English is taught in several different Asian countries. The article, written by a South Korean, seemed to be particularly critical of English education in China. For example, the Japanese English experts that were quoted were shocked to find out that most Chinese English ...

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 ...

  • 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.
