The Impact of the Advent of English in Primary Schools on the Development of College English in China
Liu, Jun; Dai, Zhongxin
Higher Education Studies, v1 n1 p105-108 Jun 2011
This article discusses the impact of the advent of primary English on the development of College English in China. The advent of English in primary schools as a teaching subject has brought about a downward shift of focus of the English education system in China. Basic English education will be accomplished in primary and secondary schools. The part of basic English education conventionally assumed by college English will be gone and in its place there will be various content-based English courses, bilingual courses and courses taught entirely in English on different disciplines relevant to the majors of college students.
