Share 5 Things You Must Do If You Want To Study Abroad
2016-10-24 05:26
Next year, close to 400,000 graduating high school students from China will be going to America for college. They go to America for two reasons. The first reason is that America has the highest ranked colleges and universities in the world. There are two reputable lists that people around the world trust for the ranking of colleges/universities. One list is the U.S. News and World Reports and the other is known as the Shanghai List and comes from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China. ...

Share Most Advanced Way To Learn English - Step 2 -
2016-10-11 02:25
Since coming back to America in June, I've worked on many projects. One is working with a project at a famous college in the western part of the USA. This project is the most advanced project in the USA for teaching the best methods of learning and teaching English as a second or foreign language. These methods in scientific studies have proved to help students learn English 361% faster than students who use other, more traditional methods. In addition to working with this project, I have w ...

Share Making Lemonade From Lemons
2016-9-16 23:16
A policy of the Chinese government that many foreigners know little or nothing about is, after a foreigner has worked in China for 5 years, he/she must leave for 6 months before they can come back to work in China. This policy is the reason why so many foreigners are in China on tourist visas and working illegally. In fact, most of the foreigners that I've known in China are on a tourist visa. They need to leave China once every 3-6 months and then come directly back in so that they can show ...

Share How Much Money Can You Make?
2016-9-14 04:42
Jonathan Baker was a project manager for a large construction company in Texas. He had become somewhat dissatisfied with his job and was seeking employment elsewhere. It is not that the pay wasn't good along with his 401(k) and other benefits. He just felt that he had more potential than he had the opportunity to use at his present company. He resigned his position and put out his resume on various Internet websites for career and employment placement. He got numerous offers, but, he and ...

Share Fake Foreign Teachers
2016-8-28 06:07
Right now, I'm in the midst of helping my daughter get her college diploma 'authenticated' so that she can teach in China. This is apparently a new requirement in light of the fact that I've never had to do it before. It is, I suppose, a response to make sure that foreign teachers actually have a diploma. The process begins with getting a notary public (a person officially deemed trustworthy and who is licensed by the state and bonded by an insurance company) to place their stamp and ...

Share Big Differences Between Chinese and American Schools
2016-8-23 05:36
Since coming back to America and connecting with some of America's top educators at Arizona State University, I realize more of what I already knew about the effectiveness of Western education. Why do primary and secondary school students go to class only 6 hours (on average) a day? Why do they not attend any 'training schools' to supplement their regular education? I was talking to my daughter who lives in Texas and she was telling me the schedule of all primary and secondary school students ...

Share 'Anyone Can Teach English'
2016-8-22 19:15
I'm involved in a project here in the USA in teaching English teachers how to teach the language to non-native (ESL/EFL) English speaking students. One assumption that I was asked to address and is often made (especially in China where native English speaking teachers are only required to have bachelors degree in order to teach) is that, 'anyone who can speak English can teach English.' In my opinion, this is very wrong. Let me tell you why. First, most schools teach the alphabet to new Engli ...

Share 150 Chinese Students In My Hometown
2016-8-19 17:33
I live in Texas, USA. Sherman is the name of my hometown. It is a small town with a population of less than 40,000 people. There are more people in my neighborhood at my home in China than in my hometown in Texas. Sherman is big enough to have a WalMart. But then, towns less than half the size of Sherman have WalMart. My hometown actually has two WalMarts though one of them is only a 'Neighborhood Market'. That's a grocery store. It is near my house so I go there often. If you read my blogs r ...
