Carrefour will stock bread (but don't expect it to be as good as in France) and Metro also stock bread. Some Chinese bakeries also sell french stick breads but again, they don't compare to the Western equivalent.

If they have the chain RT Mart (大润发) in Xi'an, it has a white bread that their bakers bake. It comes in big ass loaves for ~8 RMB. It is called 方包 and is indeed very square with a yellow label showing a sheaf of wheat.

 

Often, western style bread is labeled as ”salty"  to show it isn't sweet.

What kind of bread are you looking for? I think a couple of issues back Xianese talked about bread. I think all the larger supermarkets have a bread section that has something "good enough" for most bread needs.

As a xi'an local resident, i highly recommend you try "面包新语"(mian bao xin yu). it is very good bread  chain stores in xi'an. there have five subbranch in center and southern part of xi'an. i don't know which area close you place. but there has one subbranch nearby the bell tower. the specific address is  NO.26, fen xiang street, the south avenue, bei lin district(碑林区南大街粉巷26号)  this store very close the xi'an first hospital. (西安市第一人民医院).

go try it and you find out whether i am right or not.enlightened

Though living in Xi'an for 5 years, I find you  are  more familiar with Xi'an than me. You are really great explorers.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
