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 ...

Share How China Can Dominate The World
2016-12-21 05:34
China has brought over 650 million people out of poverty over the past 40 years. A remarkable feat. Especially in light of where they'd been prior to the 1976 'opening up.' From millions starving to hundreds of millions thriving in just 4 decades. It's never been done in history. The leadership of the Communist Party, starting with Deng Xiaoping through China's most amazing present leader, President Xi Jinping and all others in between, created the greatest economic miracle in the history of the ...

Share Why Foreign Teachers Leave China
2016-12-20 23:10
I read a statistic that said that this year, 40% of the foreign teachers (native English speaking teachers) left China after the 2015-2016 school year. I happened to be one of them due to the requirement that a foreigner with a Z visa must leave for 6 months after being there for a consecutive five years. Of course, as is the case for many things in China, this law is not enforced in many places . Unfortunately, where I live, it is. Foreign teachers do not know China before they go there. The ...

Share Watch Movies and Learn English

Ken Xiao, one the most famous non-native English speaking experts in the world, gives excellent advice in his book "Talk English". Among many things that I learned, he tells his readers how he learned and nearly perfected his English in just 6 months. One way was by watching English movies. He said that he, "Repeated every word I recognized and words I didn't know that seemed to verbally grouped with ones I did know." One thing that he said which helped him the most was, learning to spot and re ...

Share 7 Ways To Get Higher Test Scores In English
2016-12-20 05:17
7 Ways To Get Higher Test Scores In English Parents and students in China will do everything that they can to get higher test scores. China’s education system it based on these scores. You will either succeed or fail in future education pursuits based on these scores. In English education, too many Chinese believe that the grammar based English lessons that are offered through special training centers, can give them the results that they want. This is the most ineffe ...

Share Westerners Are Shocked By Chinese
2016-12-20 02:03
I learned a lot by coming to China and living there for 5 years. I learned a lot of things that I hadn't ever heard about China and certainly, didn't know. Here's my list (in brief). 1. I didn't know about some of the disgusting public toilet situations. Even though I've traveled to more than 20 countries, I didn't know that it was as bad as it is in China. Most Chinese are embarrassed to talk about it. We Westerners are not. We would much prefer to deal with it rather than ignore it. 2. ...

I teach them how speak English intelligently. They should be avoided. They make you sound like you are not very intelligent (stupid). This word is definitely one ...
