With Chinese parents complaining that expat teachers cannot even write a single email without spelling and grammar errors in their own native tongue of English, there is now pressure mounting on the Ministries of Education and Labor to require a special IQ Test requirement for all new-hire expat teachers. A sample test was already given to 2,000 volunteer ESL & TEFL teachers in Beijing, and only 32% of them passed with a score of 80 or more! There is even talk that even teachers already working in China will have to take the test after the Spring Festival break.
Considering that 69% of the China Foreign Teachers polled by the CFTU indicated that they never taught any subject to any student before arriving in China.
