Q: If missing home!!

Hi,I have recently found out this website called Box From UK. www.boxfromuk.co.uk. They sell some of my favourites like Crumpets that I miss from home. I have used them once and the service was excellent, I just wanted to let you know. I am not related to these guys and I am not trying to advertise but you can check them out in case you miss things from home.

Thanks for the info.

There are loads of these springing up now.

I wonder if it is the hated parallel trading.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
