Firstly, starting from 18 students in January, the enrollment of TOEFL learners increased steadily for three months in a row and began to gain a stronger momentum of increase from May, finally peaking at 198 in July.
Although the enrollment of TOEFL learners in November plunged again from 98 in October to 26, the dramatic increase in December was enough to make up for the drop against which we found an increase by 121, from 26 to 147.
Compared with female teachers, the weekly workload of male teachers was relatively low, only 6 hours and 8 hours respectively. However, beginning from March, it started to increase dramatically, first hitting 12 hours, then 16 hours in April, and then reaching 20 hours in May.
In the second half of the year 2007, the weekly workload of male teachers continued to rise from 20 hours in June to 30 hours in October and eventually reached its peak as shown across the board which was 48 hours.
In contrast, the weekly workload of female teachers revealed a trend of decrease: we first saw a drop from 28 hours in September to 24 hours in October, then to 20 in November, and then finally bottoming at 4 hours in December.
During this period, the weekly workload of Toya male teachers, which was 18 hours, was twice as much as that of female teachers, which was 9 hours, but this situation took a sharp turn in the following two months and became 18 hours to 24 hours.
