China: English may be canceled in college entrance exam in several years.
There is a hot topic in China these days: English may be canceled in college entrance exam.
It has been determined that English is not as important as it used to be in Entrance. Many provinces in China has proposed the policy to low the percentage English takes in the Entrance. Some of them even tends to cancel it.
For me, it's really hard to accept the policy. Cos I think nowadays, English is of great importance everywhere. It's an international language. I just cannot image how can Chinese next generation live without English. They cannot communicate with foreigners, they cannot keep up with the pace of globalization. How can China develop without English?
Reform is necessary for Entrance, but China shouldn't kill English completely. Do you have any ideas about it?
