关于我国高考英语比例的降低On Lowering the Percentage of English in Chinese College-Entrance Examination
Recently, the news that English will occupy less percentage in Chinese traditional college-entrance examination in the following years has aroused a heated discussion among the public, especially among students.
There are two different views towards the news. On the one hand, those students who consider learning English as a boring and difficult task and those who are not good at learning English sing high praise of it, because the lower percentage of English will narrow their gap with those who can get higher score in English. In other words, the lower of percentage of English makes it more possible for them to reach better colleges or universities. However, on the opposite side, those who do well in learning English will feel disappointed as their advantage will be lowered if the percentage of English is lowered.
As far as I am concerned, in a long term, the lower percentage of English in college-entrance examination is not good for the overall development of students, it is not good for improving the whole nation’s English, and is not good for communication with foreign countries. In a word, examination is a great motivation for second-language learners, and there is no doubt that the lower percentage of English in Chinese traditional college-entrance examination will bring some further negative impact to students.
