Q: Is it true that things cost more in larger quantities here?

If you went to a supermarket and you bought a six pack of soda would it be more expensive then buying it individually? Someone told me that it was but really when I went shopping it seemed like it was cheaper. What is your experience on this. Do they make some items more expensive when you buy in larger quantities such as cases or packs?

for drinks.. in normal supermarket .. no.. they just take one and multiply by the number... will not cost more .. but not less..

 

But if you go to Metro .. full pack is less than buying one by one..

It depends on the type of item. Big packs are often gift packs and they are more because the product is intended as a gift, with fancy packaging.

Why don't you ever go shopping? I find the price the same or more buying bigger. Another stupid question..Why do you post them? You  post the max questions and then give stupid answers to almost every post. Just practicing your English or collecting points?

Off course a six pack of beer will be more expensive than just one bottle.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
