Q: Is China Holistic teaching any good?

Heard some people talk about that technique of teaching English. It sounds all great on paper with a fancy name and all, but it sounds more like "practice as much as you can" type of thing. It can't be considered a method per se, can't it? Apparently, it is used several universities.

I'm always interested by new techniques of learning but this one seems more like the obvious wrapped around a catchy name. Not that I need English lesson, but just out of curiosity. China and its interaction with its partner is completely fascination. I love the country!

Since when do Chinese school systems implement holistic learning????

Unless you're talking about expat teachers coming to China and using more communicative oriented methods...

I heard some universities implemented that methods in some of their classes. But like you said, Alva, it really sounds like a marketing scheme expat teachers are trying to sell to differentiate themselves from others.

To me, it's less preparation, more free-for-all classes where all the teacher do is make students talk about anything.

Is there many scams like that when it comes to teaching?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
