Share Air-conditioner is trouble-maker
SEARU 2019-7-7 08:07
Mr. Li is a worker in our school whose main task is to safeguard the office-building. It took me a long time to persuade him not to use air-conditioner too much specially when he is sleeping! I believe that the modern electric device maybe the bottom reason why he got the illness of facial distortion! In hot Summer the air conditioner directly blows ‘cool’ gas to the bed even in night! The coldness from the machine had got into the inside of his body when he was in wonder dream that made the ...

Share Why Foreigners Can't Teach Gaokao English
MichaelM 2019-7-4 09:22
I know that for promotional purposes, most Chinese English training centers say, 'Foreign English teachers can't teach English grammar to Chinese students.' I used to disagree with this. First, I never met a foreign English teacher who tried to teach gaokao English. And, I'm very sure that those who say that foreign teachers can't teach grammar, have also never heard a foreign teacher try to teach gaokao English. It's just an uninformed statement that promotes Chinese English training c ...

Share Why English Is So Hard
MichaelM 2019-7-3 19:28
Dr. Kato Lomb, likely, the most famous polyglot in modern times, said, "Language is not learned from grammar. Grammar is learned from language." Every day that I live here in China, I meet with many people who are struggling to learn English. Many of them have been studying English for more than ten years. What amazes me is that their level of perseverance is utterly astounding. They never give up. I've been both a student and teacher of the most popular language learning method in A ...

Summer Capital It is a world paradise of observing birds. It is the best place to see sunrise in China. There is not a bitter cold day in winter. There is not an extremely hot day in summer. The Temple of Eagle Horn stretches out to the sky. The name of Bei Dai He is floating in the sea. Here comes the summer of Bei Dai He, There are more police men for security. ...

Share Why Learn English?
MichaelM 2019-6-25 08:16
“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” - Bruce Lee English is like every other endeavor in life. If the English student does't actually take action in learning the language, then, it is useless for he/she to learn it at all. I've often wondered why English is required in China. There are few who actually master the language and become fluent. There are many who hate learning it and others who find it infinitely frustrating. ...

Share Why I Only Teach Elite Students
MichaelM 2019-6-24 17:33
I have no interest in teaching every child that I meet. I do have a deep desire to help everyone that I encounter. I'll explain. I interview parents of students before I allow the children join my class. I used to accept about 40% of them. Now, it is down to less than 30%. Why do I do this? Why do I turn away 7 out of ten students who come and whose parents want them to study with me? First, I don't need more students. I'm very happy with having no more than 150 students. I had a big scho ...

Share Creative Teaching Methods That Work
MichaelM 2019-6-24 14:22
Teaching involves far more than simply feeding facts and figures to students and telling them to 'go learn this.' Teaching effectively is the ability to know how the brain works and knowing how true learning takes place in the brain. My parents' generation were taught to, 'shut up, sit down and listen.' Today, my English teaching style is almost the opposite. I want my students to 'stand up, follow me and start talking.' As with mastering any language, the foundation in language learning mu ...

Share 5 Biggest Mistakes Parents Make In Their Child's English Education
MichaelM 2019-6-19 12:41
I've been teaching English in China for about 8 years. I've taught more than 5,000 classes. I've taught thousands of students and hundreds of teachers. During that time, I've seen some amazing students (and teachers). In fact, the reason I've stayed in China is because of the achievements I've seen with our students. I've seen my students score as high as 1580 (out of 1600) on the SAT. I've seen them score as high as 118 (out of 120) on the TOEFL exam. Our average score for our students who t ...

Share English Punctuation Is Important
MichaelM 2019-6-19 07:12
I'm often surprised how little punctuation is taught in English classes in China. To be excellent in English, you must learn punctuation and know how to use it. Here is a short lesson in using the apostrophe ( ' ) in English punctuation (from www.yourdictionary.com). Apostrophes ( ' ) Show Possession or Indicate an Omission (something that is left out (omitted)) An apostrophe is used to show possession or ownership. An apostrophe and an -s should be added to singular pos ...
