88% of students feel intense pressure to learn English: study

“According to a recent poll, a vast majority of students feel immense pressure to learn English.

The survey, organized by the People First Party caucus in the Taipei City Council, polled 1,180 fifth and sixth graders about their reasons for learning English. Eighty-eighty percent responded that they felt intense pressure to learn the language while 84 percent studied English at cram schools outside of their regular schoolwork.”

Actually, this plays very nicely, albeit somewhat late!, into the discussion of students learning of English… and their exam performance.

Are we placing too much emphasis on ‘traditional’ learning methods, at the expense of creating a positive environment for children to learn English?
