Culture Clash - Teaching Chinese

Guest-Teaching Chinese, and Learning America - NY Times.


  • Hong Kong is the capital of China?
  • Chinese actually use cell phones...

Actually when I was a substitute teacher it was amazing what some students knew, and did not know. Sometimes you wondered if they were pulling your leg.

And there can be a huge culture clash. I remember one class where the majority of the class was flunking. The teacher, first year Math Teacher from Taiwan or China, had given up on the class. And the classes has given up on her. It was one of my most challenging classes I ever subbed and I learned a lot from it.
