Q: How quickly things change in China ?

Well we are here back in the top end of the middle kingdom.
As soon as we landed in Harbin the musty smell in the Airport greeted us like an old friend lol.
It is a totally different from our senses are used to in Australia.
The temperature of course is a little cooler and moist.
But feels warmer than winter at home the smell of the restaurants and the food has more tast than the bland one from the vegetables grown in Australia.
Then there is the changes in the infferstructure in the past 18 months. New rail corridors and roads.
Coming from a country where we talk about longer than it takes to do the job I find it amazing what can be accomplished in a short space of time.
Remembering that it snows here 2/3 of the year.
The long term changes over the last 12 years I've been coming here are to numerous to mention even on a local level.
Certainly interesting times in China.
Oh and be warned as per every other year im in China be prepared for numerous post of stories rants and misadventures.
And now its time to start drinking again.

The really good news is Harbin now brews 10% AND 12% beer. So you can get hammered without a huge carb intake. Win/win!

Especially when your missus says "Now Phil, we talked about this....only 2 bottles with breakfast."

Welcome back. The structural accomplishments are many, the cultural changes are few. The ethics are the same. 5,000 years of 'civilization'.

A:It will depend on a lot of factor based on the new scoring system, did you try the new scoring scheme on wechat? Go to search on wechat and type it in and you'll find one there than test yourself and look at your score and see if you can improve anywhere to make the score higher, better start improving your chinese and hopefully youre in a needy city. Just for the record: ESL teachers or teachers of any subject will always be a B card Talent. -- ironman510
