Q: Language exchange in Fuzhou?

Halo there, I'm a Chinese in Fuzhou, China. 
 

I'm looking to language exchange with a native English speaker, hoping to improve my English skill. 

If you speak native English and you are in Fuzhou, we may meet up and do some chatting in places like Starbucks, just like friends, we may talk about this city and hobbies etc. 

 

Actually, if you are not in Fuzhou, as long as you are interested in chatting in English or practising Chinese with me, we may set up a video/audio call through the internet. 
Please leave me a message here if you are interested. Thanks~

I suggest you don't say "if you speak native English"

 

ANY english speaker should be welcomed to help you practice your English.

icnif77:

That's the reason, IMO, for the demand for the native English speakers ...

 

'cause level of language is so low, only one's passport can convince them, they are taught the proper language.

 

If I step into their klompen, I would also have a doubts about Chinese language teacher from Korea ... or Dubai.

Indeed, there is nothing more fulfilling than being used as a vehicle for someone to practice English.

You'll get the sort of 'exchange' you're looking for on Tinder or TanTan.

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
