  • Senior High School Teachers’ Perceived Level of Communication Skills
           and Teaching Performance

    • Authors: Chelou M. Tizon
      Abstract: Teachers handling subjects in English medium can help learners’ develop English communicative competence if they themselves possess a high level of communication skills in the language. In this study, Division of Ozamiz City’s senior high school teachers’ perceived level of communication skills in English, teachers’ teaching performance in developing learners’ communicative competence, and the correlation between the two were explored. The quantitative research approach was utilized by collecting data from 75 senior high school teachers, ten school heads, and 356 learners using researcher-made instruments that passed the validity and reliability tests. Data were analysed through descriptive-correlational research design using mean and standard deviation and Pearson r- Pearson product-moment correlation. In this study, it is found out that teachers perceived themselves to be superior in terms of their English communication skills while school heads and learners perceived them to be outstanding in their teaching performance. Results also revealed that teachers’ communication skills and teaching performance have no significant relationship. It is recommended that teachers be provided by school heads with opportunities to sustain their superior level of communication skills and outstanding teaching performance. More attention should be given to teachers’ writing skills and being initiators of communicative situations as these two constructs received the lowest rating from the respondents.

    • Authors: Jing Zhang, Cristobal Fernandez Muñoz, Liisa Irene Hänninen
      Abstract: The work focuses on the study of WeChat (main social network in China) and its digital activity for its advanced functionalities which build intelligent society in China.

This work shows how an intelligent society changes and develops through a social network, and detailed analysis of advanced technology and social network of WeChat to give a good example to Westren countries which want to build intelligent society.

  • A Study on the Tang Poetry Translation in the Perspective of
           "Harmony-Guided Three-Level Poetry Translation Criteria"

    • Authors: Xu Xinyi, Wang Feng
      Abstract: Tang poetry, a treasure of Chinese classical culture and art, is one of the precious representatives of the Chinese historical and cultural heritage. With its rich form, wide range of subjects and unique artistic charm, it represents the highest level of Chinese classical poetry. Based on Dr. Wang Feng's "Harmony-guided Three-Level poetry translation criteria", this paper compares and analyzes four English versions of different styles in different periods of Li Bai's "Qing Ping Melody (three poems)", and demonstrates that the theory is reasonable and feasible as the principle of poetry translation practice and criticism, aiming to encourage researchers to pay more attention to the field of Tang poetry translation and promote the further dissemination of Chinese classical poetry.
