1.          “Why studying English?= Why going to school?’ which points out the necessity and importance of English learning.

2.          World language= World citizen

3.          Personal capability= societal growth

The essence of English education:

Biological and Physical

Why foreign teachers

For students

1.          A natural and complete language model: That is all it takes to learn a language

2.          Example: 2nd generation immigrates

3.          More interactive and fun filled learning experience

4.          Cultural Exposure—Best input for best output( Native-like acquisition with intuitive learning ability)

For school and Chinese teachers

1.          A stimulus for English use

2.          A resource for English related activities

3.          An opportunity to interact with native speakers and keep improving oral skills

3.          To assist in administration

Challenges of the program
