Share Best Advice For Foreigners
MichaelM 2019-7-18 16:46
If you are a foreigner in China, you need to be aware of some things. What I'm going to share with you can save you a lot of trouble if you live in China. I just read about the Serbian man who beat up a taxi driver and was held accountable even though the taxi driver was likely acting illegally. He charged the Serb a 50% return fee for taking him to a location that he wasn't likely able to find a return customer. The Serb refused to pay and punched the guy. The cabbie is laid up in the hospit ...

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 ...

Share Is Hong Kong So Special?
MichaelM 2019-7-3 08:37
I was recently in Hong Kong for 3 weeks. I'd heard about Hong Kong all of my life. This was my third trip there, but, all of the other trips were very short. This time I had the opportunity to discover this mystical, historic place. As a writer for several different publications, I can usually get access to people and places that most people can't get access to. This trip was no different. So, I took my credentials and set out to find out all I could about this place. Some people si ...

MichaelM 2019-7-2 16:56

Money - Do not ever ask a Westerner how much money they make. That is very offensive to a Westerner. It is considered very rude. Don't ask how ...

Share Happy birthday to you! (or not :-) )
J.E.Overington 2019-7-2 08:23
Is it we who buy your cake or is it you who provides your cake on your birthday? Who invented the idea of a birthday cake? Why celebrate such a day? The Germans are credited with making cakes and putting candles on it. The Germans also put candles on forest trees during the winter solstice festival... and that became the Christmas tree. The famous birthday song we sing started as "Good Morning to You". As to why we make such a big deal about birthdays: marking the event and showing ...

Share 3 Questions Parents Shouldn't Ask English Teachers
MichaelM 2019-7-1 10:03
If you are looking for an English teacher or training center for your child, this blog will help to save face when asking questions to truly professional teachers. Serious and conscientious parents are responsible for the child's education. Promptness to appointments and classes are essential if their student is going to be successful. We tell parents, 'if you are going to be late to an appointment, don't come.' I've heard every excuse under the sun. The most common excuse is, 'there w ...
