Articles : syoung108 commented on news Biting the Bullet: Going to the Dentist in China

Excellent article, well written. I've been in China for years but never was brave enough to brave the Chinese dentists. After reading your article it seems less daunting. Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news Is China’s Education System Driving Away Top Students? Sharp Increase in Chinese Students Abroad:Part 1

As had been said over and over, China needs a major revamping of its education system, from the top to the bottom. Forcing students to do mountains of homework with no real result just makes bored, listless individuals with no hope. It's quite clear why parents ship their kids out of China for education. And quite ... Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news (Mind-Blowing) Words of Wisdom - Life Advice from a China Expat Sage

Who said I accepted anything? You just imagined something that I never said or intended to say. Your reply is confusing at best since it is barely and vaguely related to anything I said. I respect others and things around the bubble...I think I do, at least if I could figure out what that actually means. I was only ... Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news Political Face-Off: Why do Chinese People Like Putin Better than Obama?

The English have such clarity on America. In reality, the government of the U.S. is so gridlocked that nothing effective can ever get done. This is well agreed upon by the majority of my American friends. Obama is just shucking and jiving trying to find something that works. Unfortunately, not much is working. And ... Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news A Foreigner’s Guide to Buying Vehicles in China

Everyone in Shenzhen is mad about getting a car. They now add 300,000 cars to the roads here each year. There are 1.75 million parking spaces in the city, yet there are nearly 3 million cars registered in Shenzhen. Roads with barely any cars 5 years ago are now packed wall to wall, mostly with drivers having less ... Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news Foreigner and Security Guard Argument Outside of Peking University Goes Viral

What a rambling nonsensical article. The point is what? That some foreigners are ridiculously stupid? That's true. That the security guard was doing his job? Good for him. This article just reports some facts of an incident, yet lacks any statement of purpose. Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news To Go or Not To Go: Lifespan of Foreigners in China

You create the world you're living in. The Chinese are just the people who YOU'VE chosen to be around. If this isn't working for you, leave. Go to that nirvanic, idyllic dreamland in your head. Stop bitching about the Chinese. China is actually changing so fast, at least in Shenzhen, that it's a bit dizzying. If you ... Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news To Go or Not To Go: Lifespan of Foreigners in China

Bitter sentiment? Again, you were probably well on the way to sociopathy (and I don't mean 'quasi') long before you arrived. What a wimpy assessment. 'Become like Chinese people'? What stereotypical racist B*LLSH*T. Go home before you start another war. Or better still, join the army so you can fight the war within ... Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news Survival of the Fittest: The Difficulties of Finding a Job as a Foreigner

All of those factors may be true, but the biggest barrier to working for a Chinese company is the language. Unless you are quite fluent in spoken and written Mandarin (Putonghua), you are somewhat of a liability since you always need a translator/interpreter. That requires two people to do the job of one.

Articles : syoung108 commented on news Teaching English in China: Is it Still Worthwhile?

If you're not in China and thinking about coming, get fully qualified and get some specialized degrees under your belt, then you could potentially have a career here that pays more than a low paying job in the West. Otherwise, come for an extended working holiday and then go home knowing that the time spent here ... Full Comment>>

Articles : syoung108 commented on news Teaching English in China: Is it Still Worthwhile?

Inflation is taking a big bite out of my paycheck these days. If I live dirt cheap (like some Chinese) I can save a few bucks. But things in Shenzhen are getting crazy expensive. If there's a city where it's cheap to live, the pay is low. If you're willing to live below your means, you can make an ok living, but you ... Full Comment>>

I've been here 5 years teaching, 3 of which were as a director of studies responsible for, among other things, recruiting. I've met dozens of teachers. My experience is that there are a few good teachers and a lot of unqualified ones. What's really happening is that schools and parents are beginning to be able to ... Full Comment>>

You've all forgotten about the loud, irrepressible, nagging, whining, complaining of foreigners who seem to think that these things are abnormal in China. They've somehow missed the point that this is how the Chinese live, whether you hate it or not. I always wonder why people stick around so long with so many ... Full Comment>>
