30000RMB per month, it does sound like on the high end. That being said, I know a Chinese college teacher who is getting 12000 + some thousands in rent allowance, and I do know another expat who is pulling in just shy of 20000 per month for a half time position.

If this is for a certified subject teacher (history/math/science/whatever) then it's not a scam.

The British International schools are top notch. Nothing like the run of the mill English training centers that we normally see. These places are generally for expats kids. That's why they are looking for properly qualified teachers and the pay reflects that.

Yeah, International schools do pay a lot more, and 30K is what I'd expect from them!

 

$AU66,000 obviously depends on when you take the conversion rate Tongue Today, $AU1= 5.8RMB... a month or so ago, 5.1, last year, 6.5

It's real and a good, certified primary school teacher is worth that. There are few positions like that in China, but they're out there. I volunteered at a primary school back home and was quite impressed with the teachers.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
