Q: Mainlander's idea of an American house. I wonder where they copied it from, this time.

http://a.mp.uc.cn/article.html?uc_param_str=frdnsnpfvecpntnwprdssskt&client=ucweb&wm_aid=cd2df2808922405d8be94ffc383352f1&wm_id=f7fcb70ae6cb4bad82323f26d45ac7b5&pagetype=share&btifl=100&sdkdeep=3&sdksid=a85da9ca-395b-e662-f253-edfbe29824d4&sdkoriginal=3ae10ac4-486b-62f0-370c-0a60c4650440&from=singlemessage

 

These photos are from a local interior design company promoting 'American style decor', in reponse to its popularity among daluren, because (article says) the style is elegant and solemn. 

 

Do these photos look anything like you know of in a classic American style house? crying (click v icon to see all photos)

Hardwood floors for the living room and dining room, only tile floors in the kitchen and bath, carpet in the bedrooms. Perhaps some place mat rugs, oriental etc for parts of the hardwood floors and some people carpet the living room, but not the wealthy or parents with young kids.

 

Everything else is a matter of taste and preference.

It has an oven and cupboards. That's more American than anything else I've ever seen here.

Doesn't feel like an American home.
It's uncomfortable, cold, not practical, not efficient or convenient, too vain.
All of these qualities make for a shitty home to show off to your fellow nonmin guests.

To me, they look like a normal real estate brochure photos. Sure, a little 'sterile', but then you can't show a messed up 'used' home.

 

A bit small though... but I'm an Aussie, and I'm used to space.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China
A:Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China with no degree. However they're probably not legally allowed to be teaching. Supply and demand.  Schools who are hard up for a teacher will hire whomever they can get their hands on. Schools get busted regularly for hiring unqualified teachers. Years ago I met a guy in his  fifties who bragged to me how he got a job teaching at a university and had no degrees at all. He said he just had someone photoshop a degree for him. So it happens and people who are from non native english speaking countries get jobs all the time. But these people are going to generally make less money than native speakers or live in fear of getting reported and deported when someone figures out their work history or degree is bogus. So if you don't have a degree or work history this probably isn't an ideal way to make money. -- walternc3
