Articles : nashboroguy commented on news Teaching in a Third-Tier City: My Year in Yingkou

I began my China adventure teaching in a small town called Ganyu/Qinkou in Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province. I loved it there, despite the normal concerns here in China with pollution and cultural issues. A small foreigner contingency provided support to each other. At the time, there were about 8 of us in the town. We ... Full Comment>>

Around China : nashboroguy commented on news U.S. Arrests Chinese Professor for Economic Espionage

Two notes I want to make: 1. FBAR technology has military applications...They left out the "U"...FUBAR. Many will not know what this means. But, those that do, will probably agree with the connotation made. 2. China wants the American government to send Chinese nationals back to China who took billions of RMB out of ... Full Comment>>

Around China : nashboroguy commented on news Sichuan Man Sentenced to Life in Prison for Smuggling Fake Guns

I feel sad for this young man. At 19, his life is over. And, for what? Guns that do nothing. Go to any toy store and you will find imitation guns. Go to a street market and you will find gun lighters and other stupid crap. It depends on what the purpose of the purchase was. I really, really, really hope there is ... Full Comment>>

Articles : nashboroguy commented on news Nightmare Vacations: Chinese Opt for Cheap Tours Despite Hidden Shopping Scams, High Deposits

I got stuck on one of these tours once. As a foreigner, there was not much they could do I think since there was a language problem. Everytime they made a stop, I just stayed outside of the shopping area and went for a walk. I did go in once because I was interested in the silk making process. I stayed for the ... Full Comment>>

Around China : nashboroguy commented on news Guizhou Theater Stage Can't Hold Choir, Sudden Collapse Injures 8

Kind of reminds me of the cartoons I used to watch as a kid. The secret door on the stage opens up and the singer falls through. Hilarious. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt in this one though. Happens all over the world with stages and performances. Has nothing to do with Chinese or China. Shit happens. Plain ... Full Comment>>

I sure hope you are not a teacher. Your grammar and spelling are horrible. As for England being the only true "native" English speakers...NOT! You point out American Indians in America as disqualifiers. Perhaps you should look into your own history to see where your ancestors came from to populate England. The point ... Full Comment>>

I sympathize with your hurt feelings. I am an old, fat man. I think it interesting that these traits make me handsome to Chinese people. Back home, not so much. I am ugly. But, I have to mostly disagree with your analysis about "They also have to teach a lot of children – some of them spoilt rotten, who not only ... Full Comment>>

Around China : nashboroguy commented on news Teacher Who Made Her Student Carry Her Umbrella: I Was Wrong To Do So

And this is the power of the internet. And, sometimes, that power is misused or misguided. I can totally understand a student who idolizes their teacher wanting to be nice and do good for the teacher. If this is truly the case, then so be it. But, if the teacher was using her position over the students, then she ... Full Comment>>

Oh please. They do not bat a eye to buy the newest I-Phone. They spend money like it is going out of style on other clothes and internet shopping. They never really care about spending all that money during the various holidays. They are eating better than they ever have. Kids are always stuffing their face with ... Full Comment>>

I have classes of 70+ students. It is IMPOSSIBLE to teach students oral English in that setting. I tell my students on the first day that I can not teach them English. But, I do teach them skills that they can learn from me to learn English themselves. They must become the teacher. They must give themselves oral ... Full Comment>>

I will often give my seat up for those who truly need it. And, if I am already standing, and I see someone who truly needs a seat on a full bus, I make a scene with one person who can afford to stand and get them to give up their seat. If more people lead by example, then, over time, things can and do change. Just ... Full Comment>>

1. Chinese do not criticize themselves. And, they are very fast to criticize others behind the person's back. It is usually full of lies and distortions of the facts. And, yes, Americans are often too PC for their own good. 2. Fair statement for the most part. Although, it is uncommon for Chinese to give gifts that ... Full Comment>>

The negative impressions the article and the comments make about teachers, usually come from other expats (in my experience). I have been ... Full Comment>>

Around China : nashboroguy commented on news Yahoo to Completely Withdraw from Chinese Market

The article is bogus in its reporting. The reason Yahoo is leaving China is that it was part of the deal when they sold part of their operations to Alibaba. They had until 2015-16 to finish the deal and leave China. This was reported on two years ago to give Yahoo users a heads up of what was to come. Full Comment>>
