The same tv programme in my previous post gave me insight to the standard of our primary school teachers.
The reporters interviewed this primary school English teacher about how she dealt with the girl on her first day in school as she can neither understand nor speak an English word.
This is what the English teacher said: "When I found that this girl could not understand what I was saying, I speak to her in Chinese."
Mdm, I know that the English speaks English, the French speaks French, the Japanese speaks Japanese, but we Chinese speak Mandarin.
I really wonder what our kids are learning in school.
