CANBERRA, June 17 (Xinhua) -- Australians retain warmer feelings to other English-speaking nations than to their neighbors in Asia, according to a new poll.
But Britain rated only third, behind the United States and New Zealand kd 7 aunt pearl for sale , in the Lowy Institute poll, the results of which were released on Tuesday.

Australians' warmth towards Britain has been a consistent feature of Lowy Institute polling kd 7 35 000 degrees for sale , with Britain scoring a warm 77 degrees on its 'thermometer' of feelings towards other countries of the world in 2013.
This warmth was based mainly on a shared history, with two- thirds citing "strong historical and cultural ties between the two countries."
Only 26 percent said it was because Britain was still a major economic and strategic power, while long-standing sporting rivalries between the two countries was seen by only 5 percent of Australians as the reason for the relationship between Britain and Australia being important.
Lowy Institute executive director Dr Michael Fullilove said it was an opportune time for Australia and Britain to focus on their relationship and shared interests in Asia and beyond.
"Our aim is strengthen our countries' efforts to engage with the region that is becoming the world's economic and strategic center of gravity," he said.
Sir John Holmes, director of fellow dialogue convenor, the Britain-based Ditchley Foundation kd 6 mvp for sale , said: "Both countries have plenty of expertise, but we come at the issues from different geographic angles. We aim to bring these complementary views together much more systematically."

The first round is being held at Ditchley Park in Oxfordshire, Britain, from June 16 to 18, when experts and policy officials from the two countries gather to share perspectives on the challenges and opportunities in Asia, across strategy kd 6 meteorology for sale , economics and diplomacy.
The dialogue will provide policy recommendations to the Australian and British governments on steps they can take to advance their national interests in a changing Asia.

BEIJING, May 27 (Xinhua) -- The glory days of English are fading in China.
Debate still rages over the value of studying English even after the Ministry of Education denied last week that English would be removed from the "gaokao", the national college entrance examination.
Those in favor of its removal say English study should be optional to ease the burden of students, while opponents insist it is a necessary ability for Chinese to understand the world.
The debate started in October last year when Beijing announced a plan to reduce the value of English by shifting points to Chinese in college and senior high school entrance exams from 2016. Other provinces decided that English would be offered to students above third grade (age 9-10) instead of from day one in primary school.
The teaching of English has long reflected changes in China's attitudes to the outside world kd 6 liger for sale , starting in 1862 when the Qing government established the first Imperial College of Translators.
In 1956, Premier Zhou Enlai called for the strengthening of translations of foreign books to help China's science development. More people were recruited to learn English, French and German. By the end of that year, 23 universities across China offered English as a major.
A decade later, the number was 74. Moreover, English was officially confirmed as the priority foreign language in a plan of the national educational authority in 1964.
However kd 6 ext floral for sale , the education system was destroyed in the Cultural Revolution, when English textbooks were full of translations of Chairman Mao's Quotations.
English benefited in the reform and opening-up policy from 1978. Chinese were encouraged to go abroad to study and come back to contribute the country's modernization.
