The pictures show teachers feeding back on best practice of second language learning, taken from the article.  The feedback is slanted at advice to their English Panel - things that need to be taken into account. 

I think the message is that too much time in Hong Kong is spent on the structure of language - the grammar especially-  and not enough on actually speaking.

Client Feedback
