Q: Does anybody know when the winter holidays for teachers begin?

The Chinese teachers at my school always seem rather evasive when it comes to holiday periods. I was wondering if somebody on this forum is clued in with specific start and finish dates yet.

 

Cheers

In my school, we begin officially on the week of January 28 (week 21 of the school year), though some begin a week early, until February 22.

Depends on what kind of school you're teaching at. At university, I guess between late January until late February. At a high school or middle school, mid to late December, depending on how the run up to the exams is handled, until the beginning of March. At a Cram school, probably just the week of spring festival. Have you tried checking your contract? The dates might be included there.

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
