Q: Chinese and alcohol tolerance

Is it me or Chinese people have, in general, low tolerance to alcohol? They drink a lot, but to the point of being sick. Especially women, who get drunk on just a few glasses.

When I go out drinking, Chinese often impressed by my lvl of tolerance and they say it's a good thing. They also ask me how they can level up their drinking skillz.

How can that be?

It depend where you are in China. In general the further South you go the less they drink. If you go to Inner Mongolia or the Northeast I think you will find plenty of people that can drink you under the table.

i guess you are having the good quality of alcohol every day branded one i think . this depends upon your physique and mental status as well. chinese drinks alot of bears having 4 or 5 % alcohol and they are very cheap to buy it. depends on the quality you have got this resistence to intoxication.

its better for you to reduce it before cause some damage to your liver and brain. alcohol readily kill brain cell which are old enough to die and liver is extremely affected with it. so if you want to have a healthy life so reduce smoking and alcohol... better for you...

Answer of the DayMORE >>
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
