Q: Running/jogging in Chengdu or anywhere in China?

I run long distance for sport/exercise. Is it common in Chengdu to see people running? Will people join me? or chase me? (Haha it happened in Ecuador several times. Some children would run with me at random for a little way. I was also chased by 2 guys once (while a third called the cops) because they thought I was running away from a crime or something, I guess.) If jogging is ok, is it safe to do it earlier in the mornings when it isn't as busy on the streets, or should I do it in the evenings? Should I stick to a park, or is it ok to do it on the streets? I'd love to be able to enjoy the city while I do it (although, that will depend on how the pollution affects my breathing).

I have never, for the life of me, seen a Chinese person jog. They will probably just stare at you in the street and in the park for that matter. I think the Chinese prefer sitting in parks. I am currently planning to jog/climb 'rocky style' a mountain not far from where I live but far from the staring and laowei comments. Check your area. Buy a map. Plan a route on the outskirts of the city or find a mountain like me. Good luck.

People in Chengdu don't really jog/run at all. If they do, you'll see them at Sichuan University, running around the track. When I lived in Chengdu, I ran outside often and it was fine. People might stare at you but it's not a big deal. I lived by the university so I would either run around the campus or along the river. I would usually run in the evening, once the weather was cooler and the streets not so crowded.

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
