Articles : sorrel commented on news Work-Related Infections Reported Across China as Companies Resume Operations

any company has a duty of care for the health and well-being of employees. If an employee becomes ill due to the negligent behaviour of allowing ill people back to work, the company exposes itself to lawsuits for loss of income of their employees. Only a greedy company will put profit before the health and ... Full Comment>>

2) I would like ECC to 'be an adult' and be realistic and honest. But it is obvious by the proliferation of spammers, that they don't give a sh**. When a friend went to China on a 6 month contract i advised him how to recognise the potential shallowness of local colleagues. as a result, he was able to dodge the ... Full Comment>>

thanks for agreeing that these articles are rubbish. I have found helpful and politely worded suggestions on how to improve this site have fallen on deaf ears. Regurgitated articles that are inaccurate and/are patronsising present an unbalaced view of the realities of life in China, which has many positive AND ... Full Comment>>

Articles : sorrel commented on news 8 Linguistic Pitfalls to Consider when Teaching English to Chinese Speakers

Actually Chinese history is NOT 'longer' than American or European history. My country has an 8,000 + year history, yet we don't need to bring this up in almost every conversation. The main pitfall is that Chinese students pick words out of sentences or just focus on the last sentence spoken/written for ... Full Comment>>

7) be prepared to be screwed over. in my experience Chinese people think they are 'very clever' if they can screw a foreigner over, either scamming cash out of them or stealing any personally prepared teaching materials. 8) be prepared to be belittled and left out of communication loops. Locals will 'forget' to give ... Full Comment>>

Articles : sorrel commented on news Life as an Expat in Xuzhou After the Infamous School Drugs Bust

Actually the writer is using clear non-'emotional' language. When you say you are 'non-native' do you mean a 'non-native English teacher'? If this is the case, you have missed how un-emotional the piece is. Just because you are not impacted by what is happening in Xuzhou, you are not in a position to understand the ... Full Comment>>

I am curious, which publications (in English) are you saying carry fake news? Global Times? China Daily? South China morning Post? Sixth Tone? The first 2 above carry a lot of 'fake news' about non-Chinese countries. Are you saying that Chinese publications are 100% honest and fact checked? even within the English ... Full Comment>>
