Education in Britain

In tomorrow’s class I’ll introduce the education system in Britain. Especially before university, it’s considerably different from the Chinese system. The main difference is that there’s no universal university entrance exam.

 You can download the presentation for the class here:

Blair’s Britain Class 5: Education in Britain

There’s a reading comprehension that we will work through together if there is time here:

    Hi – thanks for the comment!

    I bought this domain ( a long time ago, because I had a business idea. I never got around to making the website for the business, but I still have the domain and the company that hosts it has a good blog service that is quite simple to use.

    I’ve just come back to Beijing from a very busy week in Inner Mongolia. We’re planning to leave again tonight to have a rest in Qingdao if we can get a ticket.

    See you next week.

    hi,i am tony .may i ask sth about the personality that the majority of British people like?i mean,eg ,which one do you like better?a person who is eager to show himself or modest and disciplined?

    cause i love UK,and i want to get a further education there,so i want to learn more,especially the cultural and the people,so that i won’t behave inappropriately then.

    and i apologize for my behavior of asking your cellphone number yesterday.i didn’t realize it was an intrusion then.i am sorry.

    thank you so much for your help
