A basic skill in understanding and speaking a foreign language is important. As English seems to be  ...

Fully agree with you!
Your vision is correct!
Students should be trained to learn English as a very useful and economically valuable language.
More than two-thirds of the world understands and transact business in English.
Make No Mistake, English has driven science and technology to their apexes!

Yes, You are correct.

English could not be replaced!
Most people do not agree with me for that.
Mark my words, the codes in computers are in English!
If you want in Chinese, you need the cross assembler. Costs more!

It is important to test the English proficiency of students during gaokao with only multiple choices.
For those who are brighter, they could opt for written examinations but with choices.
At the same time, oral and comprehension will be incorporate to raise their proficieny and help lay firm foundaiton for good command of English!

Yes, English should be cancelled at GaoKao because it is not needed in CHINESE universities where CHINESE is the medium of instruction.


The problem with English teaching in China is that too many Chinese students learn English but don't speak, read or write English well enough to warrant studying English in the first place. If China wants to produce English-literate citizens, then that would be harmful to its national culture because English is a FOREIGN language. There is no need for China to become a bilingual society, proficient in a FOREIGN language such as English. What China needs are PROFESSIONALS in select industries involved in foreign trade or internatioal affairs who understand FOREIGN languages well enough to be able to speak, read or write them in a PROFESSIONAL capacity. In such cases, a FOREIGN language requirement for Chinese students is necessary before they are allowed to graduate with their academic degree.

So English should NOT be a required skill in entering CHINESE universities where CHINESE is the medium of instruction. If Chinese students want to study in English-language universitities in English-language foreign countries, then they would have to take exams to test their English-language proficiency.
