Q: How do I make some foreign friends in China?

Hi guys,

 

How is your life in China? 

 

Here, I have two questions:

I just came back from Europe after finishing my Master's degree (Tourism).

 

1. I'm seriously looking for a job that is about Tourism. Hope I can get some advice from you.

2. At the same time, I'd like to make some foreign friends in China. I wanna improve my English and practice my Spanish. I was a Mandarin teacher before, so you can practice your Chinese with me.

 

If you are interested, feel free to contact me!

A "friend" is someone you enjoy spending time with and who enjoys being with you too, who you'll help without expecting anything in return. Not someone you just use for your own benefit to further your career prospects. Surely there must be at least one Chinese who understands that?

I have a mate who is recruiting for his company that organises tours to NK. Send me a pm with your WeChat. I will put you in touch.

As for foreign friends. You should already have hundreds from your time in Europe. They will mostly be normal people. You should know from your studies that foreigners in China are not normal Smile

Hello Rachel, 

 

Well, it shouldn't be difficult for you to get a job in tourism. There are tons of opportunities for that sector in China currently. But I have to warn you, it can be a grueling occupation if you are looking to become a tour guide.

 

I am looking to practice my Mandarin as well. I will add you on WeChat. You sound like someone that may have different topics to discuss.

First, learn to see people as people and not as tools for your use. 

How are we going to tell you (Chinese national) how to find a job in China?

 

Scots, didn't you learn your lesson from your pursuit of Vicki?

Be a foreigner-friendly person first. If you have contents/personality/charisma/intellect, you are good at making friendly with anyone. Usually, foreigners in China make friends with Chinese girls just for 'benefit'.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
