Q: Shenzhen the capital of fakes and scams?

I heard that Shenzhen was the Chinese capital of fake products. I saw fake BMW brands, etc...and when I talked to people about it there, they were extremely sensitive about it.

They flared up about how Chinese had to start a business somewhere, etc...

So...is Shenzhen an exception, or do these 'luxury fakes' companies sprout everywhere in China?

That is a blatant case of misinformation! It's not because it's cheap that it is fake. A lot of product are made in China so it's normal it's cheaper here. But most of the time, the product is shipped without some finishing touch, so yeah the quality may differ, the logo might be absent or different. You can't call it a fake, although it's not exactly the 'original'.

Take my iPhone 4 that i got for 700 RMB. The phone part works absolutely well, but I have some trouble with the app store and some apps. At first, i went back to the store and asked the vendor about my troubles. he told me it was normal, as the app store is an american addon that is done after the iPhone is shipped from factory. I could do it if i called Apple but the american section because mine was probable destined to be sold in 'merica so the serial number wouldnt be eligible for Chinese help support.

At first i was skeptic about that mumbo jumo, so i looked at him straight in the eyes and said in a very deep voice : "This is too beaucoup story. You tell me whole truth now, mister".

He then stared down and said he sold me the phone as a 700RMB one but it's actually the 550RMB, so it has less quality check before hitting the store. He did it because he didnt have any 700RMB available. He promised to replace my iPhone when the next shipment arrive, in 3 months. He told me the limited production makes it harder to get 700RMB iPhones, so it makes a moar prized item.

Still counting the weeks before i get my new iPhone! Smile

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
