Q: Is Caochangdi over-rated?

I've gone to the art village in Caochangdi a couple of times and have always left disappointed from the art I saw. Quite often, half the galleries are closed and the one's that are open aren't overwhelming. I'm wondering if this is a problem just with Caochangdi or art in general in China... Puzzled

I wouldn't say over-rated is the right word. They did a good job fusing art culture with the local village. The art galleries aren't over-dominating and you still feel like you're in a local village than an art district. The downside with that is that the galleries are hard to find.
But I think Caochangdi is one of those places you go to when there's a special event on like the PhotoSpring or when a big exhibition opens. You have to do your research before going, otherwise you might be disappointed.

A:1. Apply at FindJobz, top L corner of this screen! 2. Have a look over the Internet with "Requirements for an English teaching job in China" in search for more details.You could also look at the guidance titled "How to use an Internet, search engines in particular ..." for more in-dept knowledge. 3. As you can see from no. 2,, main requirement for an ET job in China is holding of a native English passport (UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and S. Africa), no different than anywhere else in the world. 4. Non-English native passport holders qualify for an ET job in China only if they hold BA degree completed in the native English country.However, most recruiters and hiring managers in China aren't aware of that exemption, so if you hold a degree from one or two native English countries, I suggest you include that into Introduction letter. Good lucky! P.S.Application for the NASA's Moon-to-Mars Program at the Cape Canaveral is less stringent than applying for an ET job as a non-native Englisher ...That of course, is an opinion of a non-English native teacher with lengthy English teaching experience in several different countries.  -- icnif77
