Q: Why do Chinese people never wear hats?

The only people that wear hats are moody young urban "Alternative" lifestyle people. Nobody really wears hats. Even though it is winter, Chinese will come and go wearing their blazers and running shoes, but no hats or gloves while we're at it. 

 

Why bother wearing those sleeve-guard things? It's cold out! Barring that, you're missing out on the hipster fun of wearing a fedora every where you go.

Where do you live?  Where I am, almost everyone wears hats or scarves or some form of headcover in the winter.

I always saw people wearing hats. In public, in the movies, etc.

my local friends have broken out their winter hats already. I see them everywhere. No gloves, though . Whereas i've had my gloves on for the last few weeks

I mostly see them were Darth Vader mask type hats in Shenzhen. That was my culture shock 12 years ago, people trying to become white, while we try to become tan.

Down south people never venture out without something above their heads, if not umbrellas then caps, hats, things made out of straw, whatever. 

 

I was thinking about getting one of these hats, but thought it might look as if I am making fun of those actually using them (namely the street sweepers who are my heroes)

  What about those great big, silver satellite-dish hats the street cleaners wear? Or those massive, card-dealer, sun-screen, visor things that girls wear on their bikes? And then there's the animal head hats with the huge fluffy ears (those look......'so' good), or the 'March of the People' Chairman Mao hats the older generation often wear (Why are those green? Doesn't a 'green hat' mean someone's banging your wife here?), or the fisherman's hats older women wear (they hand you one the moment you turn 65 you know); those are all hats. Personally i've got my pork-pie, jazz-man's hat to keep my head warm. Made in China, bought in England, and back and forth it is destined to travel.

A:If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed teacher of another discipline, such as Math or Physics, you don't need to be a native speaker, although most schools would rather hire a teacher from a country where English is the native language.Right now China’s borders are closed (does anyone have new information?), at least that’s what everyone is saying. China is probably only going to reopen the borders again once most of the population is vaccinated, and that might take a while. -- samvelasco87
