Problems for Learners in ChinaWith a population close to 1.3 billion in China, the majority of students start learning english at a very young age. The major factor that affects chinese students to study english is the mastery of the language leads to opportunities (Walker, Jay Walker on the World's english Mania, 2009). The ability to communicate globally is believed to open up a brighter future. However, due to cultural and spatial constraints, there are three main problems for learners in China; passive learning process, direct translation from local language to english, and the excessive focus on lexical and grammatical features of the english language. In classes, it is common to see chinese students sit and listen. chinese students rarely take active roles in participating in interactive activities during the learning process. This may be due to collectivist culture and high power distance characteristics in Eastern education (Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions). This means students perceive themselves as group members who respect and obey authority figures. Such results in students highly dependable on the teachers’ guidance, which could hamper their learning results especially when they are learning a second-language that requires plenty of spoken communication exchanged.
