北京高考改革英语降分,中国“英语热”要降温了吗?
        Is China’s love affair with Eng-lish starting to decrease or arepeople just becoming more practical about the language?Eng-lish has been one of the three pillars of the gaokao along with Chinese and math,but,beginning in2016,the English portion of the Beijing gaokao may be downgraded from 150points to100points and the Chinese portion may be upgraded to 180points from the current150.High school students may also be al-lowed to take the English test more than once.
  Li Yi of the Beijing Municipal Commission of Education(北京市教委)says,“The change highlights the fundamental importance of the mother tongue in the curriculum.”And Sang Jinlong of the Beijing A-cademy of Educational Sciences(北京教育科学研究院)says,“The gen-eral public are dissatisfied with a school system that gives emphasis to English over Chinese,”and adds that students should devote more time to learning Chinese.
  Zhang Shuhua,head of the In-telligence Research Academy(中国社会科学院信息情报研究院),goes even further.She says English lan-guage studies are“destructive”to e-ducation.Zhang says good students are often blocked from higher edu-cation because of their poor perfor-mance on English tests and she says the money invested in English edu-cation has not been effective:stu-dents spend years studying English,but still can’t speak it.
  Zhang has a point.Studying grammar and passing tests does not necessarily lead to fluency in English and,for many students,English is not useful in their college majors or in their future careers.But English is still considered an essential skill by parents,teachers and employers and it’s a big business in China.
  According to the Ministry of Ed-ucation(教育部),English is a30bil-lion yuan industry with50,000com-panies engaged in English training.From pre-kindergarten classes to adult education,there is a great de-sire on the part of many Chinese to learn English.Some companies,such as New Oriental(新东方),are cram schools(补习学校)meant to help students pass tests,but many others are aimed at teaching language flu-ency which is more practical.
  To know a language is to speak the language,and it is fluency,the a-bility to communicate in English,that China’s education system should focus on.Downgrading Eng-lish on the gaokao is not a big deal if it means the language taught in schools actually becomes more use-ful to the students.
