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>>

Wouldn't trust any form of contraception manufactured in China, aka the 'land of fakes'.
