"There has been much discussion recently about reducing the weight of English in 
China's high-stake tests such as the national college entrance examination. It is 
argued by some applauding the recent change to reduce the importance of English in 
tests that it will lead students to focus more on learning Chinese. The TV program 
Writing in Chinese has exposed the problem that students and the general public 
cannot write in Chinese as they used to do."
