Q: Karaoke popular to make Chinese friendship?

I know that karaoke are popular in China. In my quest to make moar Chinese friends, I thought about hanging in karaoke. Music is good way to make friendships and tighten bonds between people. Plus i'm quite the talented singer. My best performance is "Living la vida loca" from Ricky Martin. I even have my own choreography!

Problem is, only karaoke places i know are closed ones. I'm hesitant to knock on door, introduce myself with a high five and start sing on a table.

So instead, is there any open karaoke where one can perform in front of everyone? Or do anyone know if there is karaoke where it would be acceptable?

An open karaoke? In all of China? You might want to specify where you live if you want people to give you helpful answers, my 'Merican friend.

I'm sure you can find people who'd be willing to sing with you. I don't think you need to limit yourself at karaokes, though. They're super expensive, so people going there usually have a plan in mind and come with their group of friends.

Make friends on the bus, in the subway or in the street...probably easier

I remember once, many moons ago, going to a karaoke bar in Zhongshan, Guangdong province, which had an 'open' karaoke section. There was a stage, and a karaoke machine, and seating around the edge. Although nobody was singing at the time, it was possible to 'perform' in front of a crowd, should you wish.

So, I'm sure they exist all over China, but I've no idea how you would find them. Maybe ask your Chinese friends? Or just do some suggestive pelvic thrusting in a policeman's face, he will get your drift soon enough.

Sowwy, was talking about Beijing! And I can't do my signature pelvic thrust to policeman! Even though Chinese are very very short, I'm not that tall myself. Or maybe the policeman would be on his knees. Are they religious people? It seems not. And China don't like homosexuals much, if my perception of foreign countary is good

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
