That's no justification for questioning their qualifications; besides, such foreign teachers teaching English in China beat the pants off Chinese English teacher when it comes to English writing skills.  In effect, most Chinese English teachers don't even have the ability to writing something clearly in English just like you, who sets store by Chinese-styled rote learning.

Such faking exercises / discoveries of bogus foreign lingo teachers in China should have been aired decades earlier; but never too late now to address such Chinese naivety among officials, teaching institutes, parents and adults. Chinese folks tend to value foreigners as English lingo teachers in several faculties ( subjects ) and such naïve inclinations have caused to be ripped-off easily.  

Funny enough one quite often read recruiting articles wanting only NATIVE English speaking teachers; but how could so many non-native English speaking foreigners like Swedish, French, Italians, Germans, etc.. ... become English lingo teachers in China?

Thank you.

Such whining by a western propagandist ghost proves my point.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The West should disband all Confucius Institutes because no Chinese Mandarin teacher there is truly qualified by Western standards. The Chinese Mandarin teachers there are spies and agents working to spread Chinese Com monist propaganda and their teaching skills reflect prehistoric professional levels.

Xiong Binqi and Robert both are aliens talking about how children acquire a second language; Xiong  because he opines that Chinese parents give foreign English teachers too much credit and Robert because he does not understand that children learn foreign languages without their teacher speaking in their mother tongue.

Both these aliens don't understand how Chinese learn how to speak Chinese before they start to learn English. Does any Chinese need a bilingual Chinese/Chinese mother to teach them their mother tongue?
