Check Walmart they should have your delicate and delicious Branston pickle or some scrumptious pies. Check the bakery section for the pies. I'm not sure if I've ever had Branston pickles before, but if anybody has them Walmart will.

There is a store (it is a chain store, 8 locations within Guangzhou) in your city that sells only foreign food.  Not cheap, but it will be up to you to decide.  Think of a store maybe 10 mts x 40 mts, with maybe 8 to 10 aisle shelves and shelves also along the walls, all full of foods from many foreign countries.  Not one thing "native" there. 

The name of the place is CORNER"S DELY, and the flag ship store is at Citic Plaza basement.  The entrance is down a ramp or stairway at 10, Unit SC-01  Back Street BM, Citic Plaza 233, Tian He bei Lu in Guangzhou.  Their phone/fax number is 020-38771400.

To help you locate the place, they are maybe 1/2 block away from Westin Hotel, maybe around 100 meters (or a little more) from the US Consulate, and about 250 meters from the East Train Station.

One thing I like is that if they do not have it, sometimes they will try hard to get it for you for next visit.  From bakery, canned goods, vegetables, cut meat, liquor, toilet needs, and many more.

A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
