Articles : nashboroguy commented on news America’s Decline, China’s Chance

42,000 people polled from 38 countries is not a great sample for a poll. I think your better indicators are from the economic sector and business sector. Who were these people? What were there education levels? How informed were they of international news and information? There is no doubt that China is making huge ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : nashboroguy commented on cwzialor 's blog 12 Types of Foreigners You’ll Definitely Meet in China

I view the majority of expats in China as "broken". This is said not as a bad thing, but rather as people who felt that they needed more from life than what their home country was offering. Perhaps they could not find the right job to fit their life. Maybe they could not deal with authority over their life. ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news China English Teaching Horror Stories

After living in China for five years, I have heard similar horror stories from other teachers. Thankfully, nothing has happened to me. Let me offer this observation about those who have told me their horror stories. The majority of them either brought it upon themselves for not educating themselves enough and doing ...

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news A Foreigner’s Guide to Buying Vehicles in China

Some cities no longer allow e-bikes, even though you will see them in the city. I really do not understand this law in some cities considering the pollution cars produce compared to e-bikes. As for motorcycles, I have heard (not verified) that a person needs to have an automobile driver's license for two years prior ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news 4 Common English Learning Issues in China

The real problem for ESL teachers is that we usually only get these kids for an hour at most for each class. All the while, they are being taught all the other English skills by Chinese teachers who insist on teaching English in Chinese and passing on their Chinglish to the students. Unless the school's ...

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news 8 New Teacher Tips from a TEFL Veteran

It comes down to culture. It is hard to break down those life-learned, centuries-old barriers. I am assuming that this article is written for training center teachers. When you have a public school class with 40-80 kids, many of these ideas fail. The number one tip I would provide here is Practice, Practice, ... Full Comment>>

I think this article is a waste of time. The real reason why this person is having financial problems is that they got married and had a child. A single person can do very well for themselves while saving plenty of money. I agree with most of the comments on here. Especially about working illegally. I do not know ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news 7 Initiatives to Implement International Student Success

One of the biggest problems with Chinese "International" schools is the administration of these programs. 99% of these programs are business oriented programs designed to line the pockets of the owners of these programs, the school officials, and government officials. Most parents have to pay to have their students ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news Top 7 Financial Tips for Expats in China

I agree with #1. You should have medical insurance, especially if you are one of the older expats. Although Chinese healthcare is less expensive than the US, it can eat up your savings if you have a serious illness or accident. International healthcare can cost $1500-$2000 annually. As for investing, I also agree ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news Biting the Bullet: Going to the Dentist in China

Two crowns molded and placed on my teeth. Annual cleaning in local clinics. Never a bad experience and the price has always been great. I just wish more Chinese would learn to brush their teeth daily and take better care of their teeth. That is not most frightening part of Chinese dental issues. Full Comment>>

If you do not like it here, find a door and don't let it smack you on the way out. Plain and simple. The way westerners whine about one thing after another because China ... Full Comment>>

On one assignment, they were writing about the different ways boys and girls communicate to one another. Instead of using the word "interact", they found a word that said ... Full Comment>>

I am currently working for one of them. Vetting a school before signing a contract is your best safety measure. It does seem that there are more ... Full Comment>>

8/21: I flew from Zhuhai to Wuxi, via Changsha: Security asked to look at the device in my carry-on. But, that is all. On the other hand, they had a fit over my shampoo/liquid soap/shaving cream. Fine. I understand this. They failed to find my two lighters for my cigarettes though. Cracked me up. Full Comment>>

I feel sad for this young man. At 19, his life is over. And, for what? Guns that do nothing. Go to any toy store and you will find imitation guns. Go to a street market and you will find gun lighters and other stupid crap. It depends on what the purpose of the purchase was. I really, really, really hope there is ... Full Comment>>

Kind of reminds me of the cartoons I used to watch as a kid. The secret door on the stage opens up and the singer falls through. Hilarious. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt in this one though. Happens all over the world with stages and performances. Has nothing to do with Chinese or China. Shit happens. Plain ... Full Comment>>
