Around China : keiranjones commented on news Tea Scammers Try to Cheat Tourist, Get Arrested

haha I enjoyed the previous post. There have been many occasions where I have approached a police officer and told them about a bus jumping a red and almost hitting me or someone else. I give them the time, the bus number etc. the police officer is usually at the crossing anyway. They look at me, laugh and say "I ... Full Comment>>

Articles : keiranjones commented on news Is the HSK Level 6 Test Too Difficult? Foreign Test Takers Seem to Think So

I have heard that the opposite about the HSK6, that it is actually not that difficult. German language schools have said that passing the HSK 6 is too easy in comparison to other language tests it is said to be equivalent to in terms of language proficiency. I apologise for not having the link for you. Nor would I ... Full Comment>>

Articles : keiranjones commented on news Money and Affection: Understanding the Financial Motives Behind Chinese Relationships

It is so difficult to try and understand anything in China. Time and time again we try to rationalise irrational and impulsive behaviour. Logic does not dictate and so we come up with many theories for the behaviour we see but because of this absence of logic and reasoning everything is riddled with contradictions. ... Full Comment>>

Around China : keiranjones commented on news 60 Math Teachers From Shanghai To Lead Workshop in England to Improve National Level

I find this very frustrating. It appears to me time and time again that the UK government does not understand China. The standard of teaching in china is low, resorting to hours of repetition without explanation of what they are doing. There must be other factors involved that accounts for that amount of money being ... Full Comment>>

wink smiley face. Captain Perceptive, in league with Captain Hindsight. I like how this guest pretends this is advanced knowledge based on their excellent research skills then does the fake humility bit by saying it's common sense. How this guest tries to ridicule people for questioning their logic and how this ... Full Comment>>

Articles : keiranjones commented on news Feminism in China: Past, Present and Future

I'm still confused. Who decided impatience is a Masculine energy? or, How was it even labelled that? Are you just talking about opposites and then label the one that is less appealing as masculine? I've never heard anything like this. Full Comment>>

Can you explain what Feminine and masculine energy is please? I've never heard of it. You say it's common sense but that may depend on where you grew up. I've learned that what is considered as common sense in England is not in China. Do you mean to say that destruction is a result of masculine energy? If so, why is ... Full Comment>>

Without meaning to sound patronising, I understand women suffer from inequality and some of the comments coming from the men in response to the women are atrocious, I can't understand why these women are picked on when say, those like the popular Korean girl bands that dance provocatively appear to be worshipped in ...

Articles : keiranjones commented on news Expats in China: What Lessons Do They Take Away?

One of the lessons I've taken away from being in China is that I'm foreign. Whilst at home in my native England I was astonished to still be called a 'foreigner' by Chinese people on more than one accasion. But how could I be so dumb, this is what I was being taught the whole time I was in China, the world has two ... Full Comment>>

I'm surprised no one has mentioned ban po which is closer than the Terracotta Army to the xi'an city centre but also feels like you're far away and indeed off the beaten track. There is a museum there and the remains of a lovely little Neolithic village, that is if you like Neolithic villages. There was barely a ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : keiranjones commented on Coffaholic 's blog European Firms Say “Don’t Bother Learning Chinese”?!

Thank you for scaring and then unscaring me. I believe that speaking mandarin will help us find jobs (of course not as simplistic as that), and that being able to read and write will open up the higher paid ones. It seems to me that the chinese regard the latter skill quite highly. Do either of you have an opinion ... Full Comment>>

There's no need to get so upset. Dare I say a typical response to criticism. I wasn't talking about certificates or schools, I only asked for your study background, the books and articles you've read and the subject you feel you specialise in. I didn't say anything about schools etc. Perhaps you took my criticism ... Full Comment>>

With all respect, this is nonsense (in a historical sense). Should you not name this the legend of the Han dynasty? In my view this is not historical although you have enlightened me to a lovely snake legend. The rest reveals the Chinese taste for the dramatic, the fantastical and belief in fate. It's not historical ... Full Comment>>
