English Language Proficiency


I'm just watching a programme on TVB Pearl about the English Language Proficiency test, and how a large number of English teachers can't even pass it. Some have failed four times in a row! When interviewed, those who appear to be failing the test continuously speak very poor English. Certainly, they can't speak with the degree of fluency you'd expect from an English teacher.

How on earth can people who are, at best, minimally competent in a language be expected to teach it competently?
