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 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 ...

Share More intellectuals work in the Forum
SEARU 2019-6-17 16:32
This morning the news program on the radio told me: Recently President Ximentioned that newspaper authority should take effective measures to attract more intellectuals to make the media business get better for the public! In the forum I have met with many teacher bloggers whose articles were quite nice those could reflect the reality of the true China. But it is a pity thatmany of the talent writers had only worked here for a short period. I miss them very much ...

Share Big English Mistake
MichaelM 2019-6-9 08:26
I've taught nearly 5,000 classes since I arrived in China in 2011. I've had several thousand students that range in age from 5 years old to 80 years old. I've taught numerous students who are now studying at top universities in America, Canada and Australia. I've trained 350 Chinese English teachers for 12 hours a weekend for 6 weeks in Henan and in Sichuan. I've taught many more Chinese teachers in weekly classes. I've even written a book about learning English. There are two very common mis ...

What does it take to get a high score?
I've taught English in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, off and on for the past 8 years. I came here with the intention of staying only one year. When I saw the desperate need for quality English education, I knew that I could help. So, I've stayed. Right now, we are in the season of the Gaokao. Tens of thousands of high school seniors have been cramming for months, if not years, for this once in a lifetime exam. In late August, students who desire to study abroad, will be taking the next offering ...

American Gaokao - The Pursuit of High Scores
It is that season again when students almost go insane with anxiety as they go headlong into the most important exam they'll ever take. America has its own version of the college entrance exam, or, as I've heard many call it, the Meiguo Gaokao. In fact, there are two exams that are quite popular, but, the SAT is the one that is most well-known. As opposed to the Chinese Gaokao, it is only about a 3.5 hour exam (the length varies depending on whether a student chooses to take subject tests and ...

Share Looking Flowers around Green Spring Lake
dovexu 2019-6-3 18:39
Looking Flowers around Green Spring Lake The mountains around a valley were in deep green. The mountainous drive way contains “ three thousand ” turns. Attic bridges across a stream connect different parts of villages. It was surprised to see modern urban buildings appeared in those villages. The silk clouds in the blue sky formed long white strips. Azaleas in a hill extented far away to the sky. ...
