Give a bit more information on the problem. Otherwise we’re not going to be able to advise. 

 

 

It’s a bit like asking how long’s a piece of string...

After the fact, sorry can't help. I suggest people do their homework before coming and have the capital to hightail it back if necessary. Also, each situation is different. Are you homeless as a result? If not, it's fairly easy to find private lessons. If you are, try checking this board's job section, there's usually jobs looking for immediate hire. But do a little research before signing the next contract.

If you are sure everything you did was 100% legal and by the book, then you should familiarize yourself with SAFEA.  

You will hear conflicting reports about them to be sure, but in your case I would think what do you have to lose?  Maybe, just maybe, they could help some way.

But, I’m not the expert on this, and if he doesn’t chime in, there must be a reason. We tend to be leery of posts like yours, especially since it’s your first post.

I'd bet more than half are scams now. Especially with the rules being enforced a little more. A school could just not pay you. There really is no recourse. So if you happen to be one of those who is outside the requirements set by Beijing, you are SOL. SAFEA will not be able to help you. It us true that some schools have gangxi, and some provinces my be lenient, it is up to YOU to be compliant.

like the post from the guy who wanted to be a gigolo, this is the kind of post that undermines the credibility of this site.

If this poster was genuine, there would be so much more information and detail, and posters would be able to give useful and practical advice.

it is not that posters here are not helpful, but the post has to seem even basically credible - which this post is not.

 

if i genuinely had a problem and needed help on this site, i would include sufficient information and stay online to get answers, not a post and run fake 'question' just to generate traffic.

 

yes, Admin, traffic is being created but only to the extent that people are trashing fake questions - is that what you want?

i know, Admin is now avoiding doing his/her job

ok Admin you responded to this post, 

what about responding to on-going poster comments and queries?

i have been looking for an answer for months as to why first of all i was blocked and then have been unable to post comments on the front page on articles and blogs.

 

not to mention ALL the other poster queries.

 

i have been emailing the Admin address - but no-one seems to be bothering their unicorn to respond to posters concerns

October is too early to see the migratory Siberian cranes. November onwards is better, their number peaking in between December and January. The dry season lasts from Sept to April. 

Here are some photos taken by a retired local during his self-drive tour of Poyang Lake, dating Oct. 17, 2016. Those birds in the photos are reared by the locals, most likely for tourists' benefits. https://www.mafengwo.cn/i/7787641.html Maps and photos from a local who did a one day tour of the area, in December 2016. http://www.mafengwo.cn/i/6487139.html?static_url=true -- earthizen
