Q: Anyone had experience to have advertisements in SH People's Square?

People post their advertisements in Shanghai People's Square for marriage?


Wonder anyone did it and the results.


Besides, they should have their own real pictures without Photoshop effects on their adv.

Yes, it's a well-known wedding market place : people comes with a paper, with pictures, a description of who they are and what they want. It can be the person itself, but most of the time, it's the mom or the dad of the person to marry. Think of a dating website in real-life, with mommy filling-in your profile and picking your dates. What can possibly go wrong, mom knows best Do they find love ? Well, they might find a suitable partner according to mommy criteria, that's one result. About love, I guess that's an optional but welcome side-effect of the whole procedure.

I saw this in Nanjing, next to one of the gate of the big downtown public park. It seems to be a common sight in Chinese cities.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
