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 Easy to Predict the man of Thirty in the Future
shehemego 2019-6-18 10:36
What am I going to be when I am thirty? Looking at who I am now, I CAN predict the man I will be-- the same as I am, with only age number larger. The right thing to do is say I WILL meet the challenge And see how much and how long I can shoulder it As days slip, with normal life, normal work Being Ordinary is acceptable to me, right? Why seeing the peers find their good jobs, earn their success makes me feel misery? I look at storys of millionairs, the disabled of success, ...

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 Why I Live In China
MichaelM 2019-6-11 14:48
If you read my blog often, you know that I came to China in 2011. My intention was to stay a year, experience the culture and return to my comfortable life in America. However, once I got here and realized the desperate need for quality English education, I felt that I could do something to change the fate of many Chinese children. Now, I've been here off and on for about 7 years total. It has been quite difficult to live here as a foreigner because, well, not everyone is so nice to for ...

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 ...

Share Did China 'Steal' American Jobs?
MichaelM 2019-6-7 14:52
This is an assertion that Trump made during has campaign and now, during his presidency. To rational, intelligent people, we know that this isn't true, because, in fact, it would be impossible for Chinese to 'steal' American jobs. American companies started outsourcing manufacturering jobs to many countries like China, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh and others, many years ago. Why did they do it? The answer is simple. These countries could produce consumer goods at ...

Share Why Bill Gates Gives Away Money
MichaelM 2019-6-7 03:50
Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and most American billionaires have committed themselves to giving away 90% or more of their money in their lifetime. When asked why he would give away his money, Gates replied, "The pursuit in life is not about money. It is about making a difference in the lives of others and making an impact on humanity." This is why he travels to impoverished regions of the world and directly gets involved in the lives of the less fortunate. Charity (donating money) is a tra ...

Share Americans Don't 'Go Dutch'
MichaelM 2019-6-6 16:09
I just read a blog on here that stated that 'it is well known that Western people go Dutch.' It further stated that Western people don't entertain or invite others to meals at restauarants. I'm not sure who told someone these things, but, it isn't at all true. Americans love inviting others to restaurants for meals. In my nearly 6 decades of living, I've never once 'gone Dutch.' In fact, I've never witnessed this in America. Americans love inviting others to a meal at a restaurant and do ...
