Articles : nashboroguy commented on news 6 Things Foreigners Working in Chinese Companies Should Avoid

Sorry, I feel a need to add another comment to address the individual remarks in this article. Perhaps Cian Dineen, author of this article, believes the burdens in her workplace with foreigners required a dressing down of foreigners, but thankfully echinacities allows for comments to respond back. Human Translators: ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news 6 Things Foreigners Working in Chinese Companies Should Avoid

While I agree that there is a level of conformity and understanding required of foreigners in the workplace, it also needs to be understood that most foreigners come from lands that have "rights" and laws protecting employees that have been engrained in our minds. We are no more Chinese than Chinese are western. ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news Things to Sure Up Before Taking a Teaching Job in China

The article was average good with the information. I first have to mention the salaries of a new ELS teacher in China (if they can even get into the country yet). If they are working at a primary, middle school, high school, or training school, beginning salary should be no less than 12,000 per month. In extreme ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : nashboroguy Posted a new blog Project Based Learning in the Classroom and Beyond

I have been very fortunate that my school has allowed me to experiment, and try new things in my classes. I love using projects and specialty styled lessons to break up the monotonous textbook learning. Some are very easily incorporated into lessons, and other require much time and effort on your part to get them ...

As these are franchise run businesses, I am sure that there are some honorable management teams. But, there is no denying that Wall Street, Disney, EF, and a few other franchise training schools have been in the news in past years for "questionable" actions. Full Comment>>

EF and Wall Street have bad reputations in how they treat their teachers, among other questionable behaviors. I have not heard of the other training centers. Note that these are training centers.

Brand new constructions will show poor workmanship after a while. Expect to see cracks in walls, outer halls and elevators not being cleaned, and light bulbs that never get changed. I have also heard that once the landlord has the lease in hand, do not expect any more effort from the landlord. You might even be ... Full Comment>>

Thank you for your comment. I will just take it with a grain of salt. I am not sure what issue you have with my comment, other than you are probably one of the many jaded foreigners living in China, and are unhappy in life. Thankfully, at least 6 people disagreed with you. I was not playing the "numbers game" to ... Full Comment>>

As a teacher in China for eight years, I have a few suggestions for the beginner teacher. 1. Be aware of the symptoms of Culture Shock. There are various stages and extremes. One of which is anger and frustration. 2. You best bet for a first school would be either a public school, or a well-known private ... Full Comment>>

Sorry that you and your friend have found a few issues. Maybe it is your location in China. I have not heard of anything like this from my foreign friends here, or within the expat wechat group. Education companies and schools are especially worried about not getting enough foreign teachers to return to China. Many ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news Foreigners Breaking Corona Rules Could be ‘Deported and Banned for 10 Years’

Some foreigners seem to forget that we are guests of China. We are not entitled to any special favors. Since we are guests, we are expected to follow house rules. I am not always happy with new policies that are placed on foreigners, but I remember that I am a guest. When I can no longer accept the house rules, I ... Full Comment>>

WOW!!!! I must work at one of the best schools in China compared to all of these comments and the article. Sure, we have our issues at the school, but nothing like what is portrayed here. Then again, perhaps it is the western mentality that many foreign teachers bring with them and fail to try to adapt to their new ... Full Comment>>

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>>

As for investing, I also agree ... Full Comment>>
