A lawmaker suggested at the ongoing session of the National People's Congress that the country should cancel English in the national college entrance examinations Women's Jordan Richards Jersey , or gaokao, as primary and middle school students have to spend too much time on it.
Li Guangyu, director of Yuhua Education Group, proposed that China should cancel English test in gaokao and change it from a compulsory course to an optional one, k618, a news portal run by the Communist Youth League Central Committee Women's Malcom Brown Jersey , reported on Sunday.
Based in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, the education group claims on its official website that it is the country's largest private education group owning 25 prestigious primary schools, high schools and universities, with nearly 50,000 students.
Li said that students in primary and high schools spend too much time on learning English.
"Based on the calculation that every student spends eight hours on study Women's Joe Thuney Jersey , nearly one-fifth of their most beautiful 10 years will be spent on English," Li noted.

Yu suggested that the country could lower the difficulty of English test instead of canceling it.
In 2013, the Beijing education commission released a draft to gather public opinion in which the grade of the English test was cut from 150 to 100 while that of the Chinese test was raised to 180 from the original 150.
