             From Teacher Survey 1

• Teachers hope to see more teaching
  activities (about drilling) that are:
           Real
           Interactive
           Lively
           Easy to comprehend
           Up-to-date, from best classroom
  practices of other countries
                                             25
          From Teacher Survey 2
           Specific instructions (+ classroom
language) of using these methods
           What does it mean by “effective
drilling”, and how to assess effectiveness
of drilling?
           How to motivate students to take
part in the drilling?
           How to make drilling interesting?

        http://www.englishonline.org.cn/teachers   26
          From Teacher Survey 3


         How to relate drilling to the
exams?

        How can we balance the current
exam-oriented English teaching by
providing students more opportunities to
speak English?

The moon   shines   over      hills and
The sea    stands   under     mountains
The wind   rises    from      an empty beach
A star     washes   next to   a forest of trees
A house    blows    through   a garden of
                    in        flowers
