    Does this help?
    Partly, but not fully. How many cameras are there in each classroom and how are they positioned? Does there have to be someone in the room to press 'record'?

    There are at least one camera in each classroom. No one's there to press any button to record. It's just a camera which is used to record things. I know some friends of mine use it at home to record what's happening when they're not home.

    Re: I don't like to work in the cameras.

    You mean that if a student can't be bothered to go to class, they can still watch the lesson remotely from home? That sounds very cool, but as a teacher I'm very glad we don't have that in the UK! Is that in schools or only in universities?

    Yes, in this case, on camera is fine.

    No. Let's say I have a camera in my flat and you come to visit me. You will show up in the camera. But when you leave, I can't see you anymore. But when I play back the recording, I mean, you came at 5-6 pm, and I play back to 5-6 pm, I can see you.

    Is that in schools or only in universities?
    Everywhere, jutfrank. Ubiquitous CCTVs here are a double-edged sword. It tells you what's happening in a specific place firsthand but people are being watched.

    I like your suggestions a few days ago so much; I already put them down along with your username. This reminds me who helps me and I'll do things for them in return.

    I don't follow. So you're saying that when I'm in your flat, the camera can see me, but when I'm not in your flat, it can't. That's rather obvious.

    I'm confused now. Are we talking about CCTV cameras (i.e. security cameras) or not? Do you mean that the CCTV cameras in China record sound? If they don't, they can't record a lesson, can they?

    You're welcome. I'll email you my bank details, then. (That's a joke, by the way.)

    Re: I don't like to work in the cameras.

    I misread this question. And it should be "YES'.

    They can watch at home or just in the language school, another room maybe.

    Are we talking about CCTV cameras (i.e. security cameras) or not? Do you mean that the CCTV cameras in China record sound? If they don't, they can't record a lesson, can they?
    Yes, the cameras. Since I answered the first question incorrectly, I need to say what I wanted to say again.

    I think the CCTV cameras here do record sound, this means I can hear what you say in the camera, but I think the one with sound-recording function is expensive than the cameras without sounds. I don't know, but I watch short videos online every day. I am sure some cameras can record sound, too.

    The cameras used in language schools are mainly for monitoring (watching) what teachers do during a class. It's not for parents or students to study again by using the cameras.

    Okay, I've just read this sentence again. I don't know how I misunderstood it because it seems very clear what you mean.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    Re: I don't like to work in the cameras.

    Silver, did you mean to say that instead of going to class the students can watch the lessons at home?
    Not a professional teacher

    The students are required to go to the school (the language school) to study. The cameras are used by the school. I don't know how to explain myself. Since the question was already answered, I'd better stop adding things to confuse everyone here.

    Re: I don't like to work in the cameras.

    I don't think it's confusing at all. There are the equivalent of CCTV cameras in every classroom. They record everything that happens automatically. The footage is probably stored on a hard drive or a server in the building. There will be a list of people who are authorised to watch the footage, and for what reason they are allowed to do so.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
