关于聘请外籍教师Hiring Foreign Teachers
Hiring foreign teachers in Chinese universities is necessary
Nowadays, there are more and more foreigners come to China for teaching. The majority of Chinese show agreement about this phenomenon, though there are more or less Chinese stand on the opposite side. Maybe still some people don’t realize the advantage of having foreign teachers to instruct our English: they help us to improve our oral English, know more about culture and make different friends.
First of all, it’s a common thing that Chinese students are good at writing English exam, but can’t talk in daily life. If we have foreigners to be our English teachers, we have to use English to communicate with them. Otherwise, we can’t finish study task. Therefore, in one way, having foreign teachers help us open our mouth to speak, this is the best way to practice our oral English. In addition, talking face-to-face is the most effective way to correct speaking mistakes and recorrect them.
Secondly, when talking with our foreign teachers, we easily refer to our own country’s culture and theirs’. In order to make the conversation continue, we have to do some research to make sure that whether we know about own culture is correct and what else we don’t know and also have to do some preparation about their culture. Moreover, when we talk, we can easily and impressively learn others custom and culture. Thus, in this way, we are not only having a deep impress on our own country, but also learn overseas’ culture in a relax way.
Last but not least, before we have foreign teachers, it’s possible that we just see foreigners on TV, not to speak of talking with them. So it’s certain that all our friends are Chinese. Many things are different when we have foreign instructors. They are not only teachers but also friends of us. During the communication in class or after class, it’s easily for us to make friends with them. Then we are not only having Chinese friends but also foreign friends.
General speaking, maybe foreign teachers can’t help us too much on Chinese university exam, but they can help our spoken English and open our eyes. Being college students, we need is not only having a high mark on the exam, but also some skills and abilities that have real effects after we graduate. Improving spoken English, knowing more cultural things and making different friends are of great use. So, I think Chinese universities hire foreign teachers are absolutely necessary.
