Changchun is considered as capital of auto manufacturing industry in China. I read news that the city employs many auto engineers / experts from other countries (Germany, Japan etc. ) in the manufacturing industry, with many in auto manufacturing industry.

I personally devote a lot of time with the children i teach, because their smile is just priceless. I want to stimulate them so they get out of the "learn by heart, don't develop our creativity" things that Chinese people dig.

When i feel they are stimulated by all the exercise i plan for them and the reaction is good, it stimulates me, so I become happy.

How old are you George? My students seem to be around the same age as you are Wink

skater, you must be Chinese, thinking Changdun is the capital of auto manufacturing factory! You gave me a good laugh and I thank you for it.

On a serious note, though, you are totally wrong.

But I agree with you for the manufacturing part, because Chinese labor is utterly cheap and there is no Unions, mostly because Chinese people don't realize they're being exploited by the West.

Tommas, yes I should have made it clearer that the statement Changchun is considered as the capital of auto manufacturing industry in my previous post refers to China only. Changchun's share in the Chinese auto industry is reduced as some other auto manufacturers in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Wuhan have increased greatly their auto production in recent years through the alliance and joint ventures with other auto manufacturers in the world.

there is a great deal of foreign teachers here, but expats, am not really sure; also a large number of exchange and foreign students... the only thing in changchun that most people do is visit around, visit parks, clubbing etc...

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
