Q: Heading to Guangzhou this weekend: What must I eat?

I've been a couple of times, but I think I'm not eating the best stuff when I'm there. I've heard great things about Guangzhou. So anyone in the know in terms of what I should eat?

Do you like to eat Dim Sum? Thats probably the most famous. And depending on where you go. Its super good. More of a breakfast lunch thing than Dinner.

 

I love the food in Guangzhou mainly because its not spicy and its kind of what the chinese food back home is based on.  Your BBQ Pork, and duck with plum sauce, chow mein,  spring rolls. Beef and brocolli. Its everywhere.   If your by yourself and dont know where to go I would suggest  a Hong Kong style snack shop.  Casual  booth style restaurants where you can find everything youve eaten back home pretty much.

 

If your really stuck trying to find, Google a place called " Uncle"  Its a famous franchise of HK restaurants in Guangzhou and other cities.  Your safest bet if your alone.

 

Enjoy!

I second Dim Sum. There is two places in the world where you get great Dim Sum, Hong Kong and Guangzhou.

everything.

according to my students, if it is alive, they will eat it, and this from a student from Guangzhou.

 

Sidebar:

one class included a conversation topic "what would happen if......."

the question was"what would happen if an alien landed?"

a quick student replied "in Guangzhou they would eat it"

it took a while for the laughter to stop. 

mike695ca:

I find that really strange. Its true that in Guangzhou they eat everything, and the cantonese people like to laugh at themselves about it. But in reality compared to other places, they eat far more normal stuff than in other cities.  No dog, no wierd shit, mostly just meat.  Maybe another reason i prefer cantonese food.

 

I have heard of lots of underground places where the eat horrible stuff like mice babies, and monkey brains, so there is probably some truth to it, but in my many years here i havent come across anything, so untill then, its just rumours.

sorrel:

my Guangzhou student told me he had eaten rat and mouse.

I didn't believe it until it was confirmed by another Guangzhou student in another class.

 

i still don't want to believe it : there is not much eating on a mouse

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
