Single-line foreign teachers
Foreign teachers from native English-speaking countries have their unique advantages in English teaching in colleges and universities, so it is inevitable to hire foreign teachers to teach English in foreign language schools. However, the current English teaching in colleges and universities mainly focuses on books and English preparation for CET-4 and CET-6, and "Chinglish" is more common.The shortage of foreign teachers and the prevalence of test-oriented education concept have led to insufficient cultivation of students' practical English application ability and poor English language output ability. Some students who intend to study abroad take improper methods when they prepare for IELTS and other western localized English ability tests, resulting in unsatisfactory test scores.
This project aims to introduce foreign teachers, improve the role of foreign teachers in English teaching, give full play to the oral advantages of foreign teachers in English class, increase students' extracurricular English activities, provide them with opportunities to be exposed to western languages and culture, stimulate students' interest in English learning, so as to improve the effect of English teaching in our school.At the same time, IELTS and other comprehensive courses are offered to meet the students' needs of studying abroad and preparing for exams, and to promote the internationalization process of the university.

Pearson is a world leader in various disciplines of high education , providing universities with global high-quality education resources, technologies and learning tools to help teachers and students get measurable and guaranteed learning outcomes.Continuous innovation is an important factor for Pearson to maintain its position in the world. As an innovation leader of global high education, in rencent years, Pearson has been actively cooperating with educational institutions of different countries and multinational enterprises, focusing on curriculum content innovation and teaching mode exploration, improving the quality and efficiency of high education, and helping teachers and students get measurable and guaranteed learning outcomes. It is the cornerstone of all Pearson's educational actions to continuously pay attention to the needs and learning outcomes of learners.
It is also the goal that domestic colleges and universities is pursuing to innovate, ensure the learning outcomes of higher education and keep pace with the international standards. However, there are some common problems in English teaching in high education: the teaching materials are old and the key teaching points in these are still vocabulary and grammar, and the cultivation of students' listening and speaking ability is weak; Teaching methods can not meet the teaching objectives, and in addition to the teaching with multimedia in class, there is no way to let students form learning coherence before and after class; the teaching effect is not obvious, which is reflected in the fact that after two years of college English study, many students still can not understand the authentic English, cannot carry out basic daily communication, and cannot complete basic English writing; English teaching can not well meet the needs of students, such as work, postgraduate entrance exams and going abroad.
In order to solve the problems mentioned above, we Shandong SLCanada International Education reached a cooperation agreement with Dongfang College, Shandong University of Finance and Economics: we will integrate the original English textbook North Star and intelligent system named My English Lab developed by Pearson into the English listening and speaking course for foreign teachers of grade 19 undergraduates, which can effectively solve the above problems in English teaching, realize the process management of students' English learning, and let students really be exposed to authentic language materials to improve their listening and speaking ability.
The Implantation of Pearson system will influence the undergraduates of 2019. According to the courses arrangement of the academic affairs office, there are 26 teaching classes, and each class has one foreign teaching class per week. During a class, students need to learn the original textbooks in the Pearson system according to the teaching requirements of foreign teachers. And after class,students need to log in to the Pearson system to learn the original textbooks and complete online homework .
The first stage of the program has been successfully completed, in which students need to complete registration, start teaching and complete online homework before and after class according to the arrangement of the foreign teacher. At the same time, they need to carefully listen to the teaching of the foreign teacher in class.In the execution of the next step, in order to guarantee the further implementation of the project, to really improve students' English listening and speaking skills and to cultivate the students' English learning autonomy, we Shandong SLCanada International Education will strengthen the communication with international exchange office, English teaching and research office and international business school of Dongfang collegeensure Pearson smooth operation of the project, ensure the quality of foreign teachers' teaching and actively carry out activities for foreign teachers and students to stimulate students' interest in Learning English.

In addition, the teaching and research office will plan to design questionnaire to ask the students for some suggestions about foreign teachers' lessons and Pearson system and then to make a more reasonable plan for the implementation of the project according to the students' feedback.
