Q: Has the hiring of non-native speakers finally catch up to the institutions that were hiring them?

Before a year ago hardly any of the schools required you to show your passport. A lot of the places just wanted a demo and a face to face interview. With the number of complaints online from different forums I wonder if it finally caught up to institutions that were originally hiring non-native speakers. I always thought that the students would find out eventually,  especially if a school says they will learn from a native speaker from an English speaking country. I have recently found out that nearly all schools at least in Beijing require you to bring your passport.

Have a native speaker check the grammar of your question and you will have your answer.

Mattiya, why is it, every time a thread involves you, all the posts not by you have the exact same number of thumbs down, but your posts have n-1 thumbs up?

Also, why do certain other posters have the exact same idiosyncratic English as you?

Anyway, all schools in China hire non-native English teachers. They are Chinese ones and the students usually trust their English over the native speakers for usually racist reasons. Thus Chinglish makes China the laughing stock of the world.

Anyway, I'd rather work with a Philipino or a Scandanavian. They're not native speakers but their English is usually scores better than the Chinese teachers. And they're easier to get along with, more cooperative, etc.

Well, some of the crappier instutions may be upping their anty for several reasons. Stricter laws may be a part of it. It may also be that they know there's a lot of qualified foreigners out there, so they think they can get better. The good jobs have always required a passport and proper credentials, since they hire the legal way. Are you looking for another crap job and keep getting denied? Honestly, I don't know if I'm replying correctly because I can't really understand your question. Can you please rephrase that?

In my opinion the answer is quite simple. Now China, especially Beijing, is plenty of expats, from the usual third world countries but now also from USA, England, etc., who where pushed here by the current shit economical and social situation in their once prosperous lands. Facing the collapse of the old American or European dream, those expats are taking their chances with the “Chinese Dream”, however, they are also overwhelming the job availability. The schools in China are just taking advantage of this situation and choosing the new and enlarged supply of English native speakers which now also include a lot of “pretty” teachers with Caucasian looks. Of course, this situation is also pressuring the Chinese authorities to make more strict their job and immigration policies.

Before a teacher gets hired because of his/her teaching experiences. Now you have to show your teaching credentials & passport with a Caucasian features.

 

I am Asian American with US teaching Credentials in Single & Multiple subjects. I still find it difficult to find a teaching job if the interviewer is Chinese or a Chinese Principal. But if the interviewer is a foreigner or a foreign Principal, I always get the job.

 

I guess most Chinese dont believe that Education should be above prejudice.

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
