Q: Are internships in China for foreigners worth it?

I read a lot about all these internship programs that have cropped up here and there in China - unpaid for the most part but which promise to get your foot in the door of the Chinese market by showing you around the top companies of whatever sector you're in.

Are these internships worth it or just money traps? (their prices are high)

no they are not worth it like these teaching programs that charge you, if there is a demand for you to do a job for free then you could find someone willing to pay you usually much more than a local

I took a type of internship when I first came to China to teach. My airfare, meals and accomadation were all provided. Also I got an allowance which helped for other things. The contract was for 3 months so I was able to make a judgement about coming back to work here
I have been here now for over 3 1/2 years now and I love it
If you haven't taught students before maybe you can get something like I did.

A: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 somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
