Q: Why are clothes in shopping malls so expensive?

500 kuai for a tacky, synthetic top - seriously? I'm shocked whenever I see the prices in major shopping malls and really think it's not worth the price. I thought clothes in China are meant to be cheap but why do I get the feeling that clothes - at least trendy and fairly good quality ones - are way more expensive here?

It is actually a misunderstanding that it is cheap to buy quality products in China. The reason why most if not all famous brands are more expensive than in Europe is that China levies a very high tax on imported brand goods, a so called luxury tax.
fake products can be very cheap, but you often need to spend a long time to bargain about the price.

to buy local chinese brands can be a good alternative to the more expensive imported brands. the chinese brands will usually be of more or less the same quality as an imported brand like say H&M

It is more expensive, as I've been told if I go to America I should only take an empty suitcase and my credit card. That means, to buy clothes there is much cheaper. Have no idea what's happening here in China now.

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
