Generally in China, majority of Chinese do not need to speak English because it is not common for them to meet foreigners on daily basis. However, English is the language for science and commerce in the world.
So, if one could learn and use it, one benefits from it. The English examination in gaokao is not English proficiency test but rather competition against time - SPEED.

Glad to have your response. Perhaps, there should be a discussion to seek a proper access to top decision makers. Purpose is to enable Chinese become proficient in English. It is the language to science, technology and commerce. If Chinese could possess reasonably good command of English, then half the battle is won.
