Around China : sorrel commented on news Foreign Women in Shanghai Slaps Young Boy, Sentenced to 10 Day Detention

as this incident took place in an airport, i imagine there would be CCTV footage of it, to confirm one way or the other what happened. Why has this not been mentioned? Full Comment>>

Blogs : sorrel commented on Coffaholic 's blog The Staring Games: Chinese Child Vs. The Adult Foreigner

I had a discussion on cultural differences with a Post-grad class, and staring came up. I said how aggressive this can be, and demonstrated this. I stared at a student and after all initially laughing, i could see how uncomfortable the student got. This opened up a very interesting discussion on unconscious cultural ... Full Comment>>

Articles : sorrel commented on news Love and Unavoidable Conflict When Chinese Women and American Men Date

This is the part where i offend Chinese readers on this site. In my few years living and working in China i have observed that failure to communicate is a big problem with many Chinese people. "you think too much" is a common response when faced with a situation that requires talking and reflection. "compromise" is ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : sorrel commented on coineineagh 's blog I Do Love China

I might on occasion complain about things in China, but i also complain even more about my home country. I can not be blind about what is wrong about a place and not want to do something about it. I agree there are positive things about China and i am happy to talk about them, but also negative things. It is ... Full Comment>>

Around China : sorrel commented on news One Child Policy: What If One Child is Born Outside of China?

Hong Kong maternity hospitals and residents are complaining that many rich Chinese are using this loop-hole to have second and third children, and blocking up their hospitals for locals. While i agree the control of fertility is wrong, the fact that the wealthy are once again buying their way out is typical of the ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : sorrel commented on hadleyj09 's blog 5 Things I Have Learned In China

Being humble: hmm. i find simple courtesy is better than false humility. I would not act in a way that is not in character, and false humility is just that: false. Sharing: I come from a country where sharing is the norm and taking more than your share is discouraged from an early age, so this is where i have to ... Full Comment>>

Articles : sorrel commented on news Disciplining China: Positive Reinforcement is Only for Officials, Not Children

students i have met vary from the over-indulged, self absorbed narcissists to those who have had their spirits broken by 'traditional' parents. The fact that many children are raised mostly by their grand-parents (and all that that implies), means that it will be a while before there is a balanced approach to ... Full Comment>>

The reason for a 100% success rate is due to two things: Cheating in exams, and the fact that the teachers contract renewal is based on student pass rates. Most students I have encountered do the bare minimum work to pass, or they 'study' very hard without absorbing and processing the information they get. It is ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : sorrel commented on WaqaMalik 's blog Chinese Workers Salary

the difference between the local and ex-pat salaries is large and is a source of resentment, especially as some ex-pat's are not only unqualified, but also a few are unfit for the job (I am referring to teachers). Unfortunately some schools are desperate for a foreign face in order to attract students, they don't ... Full Comment>>
