Share Why Grammar Based English Teaching Doesn't Work
2016-12-31 22:36
Someone just sent me a link to a Chinese English teacher who is quite popular in China. The link was to his www.ximalaya.com podcast. After translating it, I see that he is telling students that they don't need to learn listening and speaking to master English. He said that grammar based teaching/learning is the best way to learn English. In fact, in China, you learned Chinese without ever being taught Chinese grammar. In America, we haven't taught any language in this way in my lifetime. I'v ...

    Ture but most Chinese return to China Plus if your have not mastered English a degree from Harvard with a 75% average means nothing. Now if you end up in the top 10% of your class then by all means it is better. But really how many Chinese end up in the top 10% in any USA university? Maybe 1 out of 10,000.If you do not want to return to China then yes Harvard Degree is better.
