WeChat ID - BigTEXZZ 4/21/17 Good morning One of the most difficult sounds that Chinese English learners face are words that start with the letter ‘w’ and that have an ‘r’ or ‘l’ in them. Today, I’ll teach you and let you practice one of those. That is, words which start with ‘w’ and have an ‘r’ in them. ...

Add me on WeChat and I'll connect you to my public account. You can get free English lessons including script and MP3s there. WeChat ID - BigTEXZZ 4/25/17 Good morning Today is Tongue Twister Tuesday. Sometimes, I use tongue twisters in my classes. The students love to try them. Of course, they want to compete to see who can do it the best and the fastest. The best way to say them is to start out saying them slowly and clearly. Then, after you pra ...

Add me on WeChat and I'll connect you to my public account. You can get free English lessons including script and MP3s there. WeChat ID - BigTEXZZ 4/27/17 Good morning. Today, I’ll teach you an idiom that you can use often. It is an idiom that you’ll hear in English conversation. The idiom literally refers to a stove (cooking). What we call the ‘stove top’ is where the ‘burners’ are. The stove might use gas or electric power to heat pots or ...

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 ...

Share The Daunting Challenge of A Foreign Teacher In China
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
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. ...
