    Any headline containing: slams, destroys, or some similar hyperbolic bollocks immediately identifies itself are an article full of opinion pretending to be fact, and not worth reading.

    "is there any possibilities to get a job in China for my degree"


    I have no idea, but.....

    >Check the situations vacant listings in China

    >talk to people who work in that industry for an idea of what's available.


    And how to apply for a job?


    >Find a job being advertised and...

    That old Chinese lady is a legend, some cowardly little piece of shite sucker punched her and probably another old man earlier, so she wrecked him, put him in hospital. Good for her but she should never have been put in that situation.


    The fact that this is a thing now, attacking elderly people (or anyone for that matter) , often from behind and probably calling themselves...

    There is not much on web for "Can you enter China with Covid-19 vaccination certificate?".

    US Embassy on Covid China ...


    Nothing set in stone, yet for "vaccine...

    Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure.


    I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours.


    Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well...

    Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding.


    Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is...

    well,,,  just hope all newbies in China wake up real quick to the idea of there are not really any 'road rules',,,  so, like the little Safety Films we watched in Elementary School said when u were a kid,,,  'look both ways before u cross the street'.  dat sh*t be true here,, haha,, and don't be too surprised when u see a car driving down the sidewalk,,,  cuz long enuf...

    Firstly you need to ask yourself these questions:

    Am I ethically obligated to honour a contract I signed?

    Can I ignore my legal and ethical obligations if someone offers me 5 mao more per month?

    Am I prepared for the consequences?

    I seem to be able to deal with the face issue quite well. Most of the students who laugh are the ones who don't know the answer themselves. So when I ask a student a question I will turn my attention to the person who starts laughing. I will patiently ask that person the answer knowing full well that he doesn't know. Yes I said he. I have yet to run into a girl who starts to laugh. The person...

    MIL?  Mother In Law?  Ok,,,   I prefer the term MBL.  Mother By the dictates of Law.


    This gender preference needs to come to an end.  Female need Male.  Male need Female.

    I agree that parental involvement helps kids focus their intelligence to realize their potential and in that sense I'm sure the theory is correct  but I'm not sure that I.Q tests are an accurate measure of real intelligence.


    I think intelligence is something you have or you don't. You can't learn to be intelligent. If you spend enough time at it and are pushed in the...

    Scots, this questions hits at exactly what this site is for and you're a mentally defective dick.


    Your best option is to get in on the Expat  Wechat group in your city. You could also ask your Chinese friends especially students. Lastly, many 5 star hotels have professional bakers on staff, check Ctrip to find local 5 star hotels and take a day trip visiting them...

    Because no Japanese were massacred and the only bona fide martial art is kung fu. The movie also lacked the necessary nationalistic and patriotic themes that appeal to Chinese audiences. And of course, how can the hero who saves the known universe be white? He must be humble, heroic, overcome adversity, unable to be with the woman he loves, a good student who respects filial piety, self...

    lol, I didn't mean restriction of posts to China only but I just see the band-wagon of Fox like hawks jumping onto anything that matters to them and close their eyes to anything that doesn't fit the narrative. Just like Hannity or Conway/Methway, lmfao.

    I had a mild heart attack last month. As a result, I had to have a stent put into one of my arteries. Besides having to wait 10 days to get a CT scan (I am not sure why), everything else was above par with treatment and procedure. Cost was stupidly inexpensive compared to the USA. I trusted my life to the doctors and nurses of a tier 3 city and had a successful experience. I will say that...

    Thanks, I went through hell getting my kids into school it wasn't easy

    Most likely, School doesn't want to let you go, i.e. terminate the Contract. 


    Reasons, why did you terminate the Contract are utmost important!


    If School doesn't agree with your Termination or your termination is without School's Contract violation, you might be required to exit China with short packing time.

    Once, foreigner in China...

    Hey Justin, welcome aboard and good on you for responding after you posted your question.

    Have you been hanging out at expat bars to get your "facts"?

    A lot of what you have been told is bollocks. I bought a house just like a local. I am the sole owner and i walk down the street holding hand with my wife everyday....nothing happens. I'm not running from anything and I'm certainly...

    You're mixing up a network outright making stories up or at the very least not taking the basic step of fact checking with a news network reporting on a story where the victim/ witnesses happen to be lying.

    Can work, but the office gossip can make some big troubles.
