1. given the nature of the experiment (not randomized, too small a sample of the teacher etc.), the opinion could be very bias and it indeed looks like that.
2. it is unimaginably difficult to teach pupils maths, chemistry and physics in a foreign language setting, esp for Chinese teachers, if you realize the morden science roots from the western world.
3. Generalization bias of Chinese teachers (it's a prolem for the whole nation):
- Not many, at most a small group of chinese pupils play with chinese ring when they are young.
- Not all Chinese behave in a disciplined way. The lady who made this comment looks like living in the 60s or 70s. It's quite unusal to teach physics / chemistry like that, so boring, even for Chinese teachers.
4. Chinese need to learn from British people how to polish and sell their ideas in an implicit manner.
5. Everything happens for a reason, true for both sides. One reason for this teaching method is China once needed a lot of engineers to drive the Chinese economy. it did work. As the country is moving up the value chain, it will require not only engineers, but more enterpreneurs with innnovative ideas to drive the force. So teaching style of this style is and will eventually lose its market, adjusting itself to the development of the society.
6. Would it make more sense if BBC invited teachers from Germany or Switzerland to help them solve the problem?
7. More thoughts and inspirations...save for myself.
