Chongqing...two and half months later...

louischuahm  May 31, 2014 Comments(8)

It's been two and half months since I last wrote. Been busy all that time putting into place processes for so many tasks. I was wondering what the previous administrator was doing, even simple processes were not in place. It's no wonder the expat teachers here were complaining that each time they wanted something it takes a long time to get ... Read More>>

Food / Drinks in China (Love, Like & ehhhhh....) :)

hadleyj09  May 28, 2014 Comments(5)

Food in China for the most part is just like food in the west in terms of opinions. Either you will love it, like it and eat it on occasions, or it may not be for you. Love 1. Spicy food I love spicy food. I didn't really think I would because my stomach never felt right back in the states after I ate food that was super spicy, but I would have ... Read More>>

Discipline in China

mak  May 28, 2014 Comments(2)

I visited China for the first time in 2006. I had heard a lot of stories about how China had developed and that people were very hard working. Hard working is fine , but hard working with proper discipline is a must. From my trip to China I figured that it was not a laid back country. The people were always on their toes. Whatever had to be done ... Read More>>

First Interview: Aftermath

IslandBoy77  May 24, 2014

Well, the "first interview" is behind me. It is a mix of relief and disappointment that I see the event now, which is interesting. After a fairly busy and a little stressful day, I decided to get myself ready 30 minutes before the scheduled time of 6:30pm (NZ Time) for the Skype interview. I figured that would give me time to disengage from my ... Read More>>

Suzhou to Shenzhen: Nearly finished with my first year of teaching English

samferguson88  May 23, 2014 Comments(10)

I've hit the final stretch. In about five weeks I'll leave Suzhou and (fingers crossed) head to Shenzhen to begin a new teaching job. I've learned a lot during my first year in China. Not just about Chinese culture, but about myself- as corny as that sounds. I came here not knowing much about what I was geting into. I had no prior teaching ... Read More>>

The First Interview

IslandBoy77  May 23, 2014

So, today is the day: my first online interview. Ever. I'm feeling surprisingly relaxed, but also hesitant and cautious. Why cautious, you may ask? Allow me to explain... After signing up and getting my resume completed and approved here on echinacities.com, I proceeded to apply for a couple of jobs - just to "chance my arm a little" and to warm ... Read More>>

Islands on the Land

juanisaac  May 22, 2014 Comments(2)

The first few months that I stayed in China I started to learn the language in the small town of Hai’an, Jiangsu. I was not learning the national language but the local dialect. A colleague pointed it out when instead of saying “Ni hao” I said, “Ni hoa.” More words in the regional dialect inverted the ... Read More>>

The driving here is a joke sometimes

henry.lam260988  May 20, 2014 Comments(1)

Hi people! I have been in Shenzhen for almost a year and one thing that really pisses me off is the driving and how pedestrians cross the road. First I wanna talk about the driving. I really cannot stand some of the driving. It's like everyone is in a rush to get somewhere which creates chaos and traffic. Bus drivers I find are the worst. If a ... Read More>>

Journey to China and a new life

IslandBoy77  May 18, 2014

It never ceases to amaze me how life can change in "the blink of an eye" or on the strength of a simple sentence. Indeed, when my ex-wife said to me early last year "I'm leaving you", I had no idea of the profound changes her words would bring, or the opportunities that would open as a result of her actually walking out the door. Indeed, it was ... Read More>>

China: Life Is Great Here

hadleyj09  May 15, 2014 Comments(34)

It's been nearly 9 months since I've started living in China. The only thing I can say is that it has truly been an adventure. One thing is certain, not once have I ever thought of China as a bad place to work or live. This is a great country with so much opportunity. Actually, the amount of success and freedom here seems unrealistic. What do I ... Read More>>

Boring City and Happy You

sethbarham.esl  May 14, 2014 Comments(2)

Oil and water. Hatfields and McCoys. Beer and China. Give me three things that don’t go together. Life in China can be challenging at times for those pretentious expats that look out of their monocled eyes and down their noses at a piss-colored glass of Tsingtao. Mostly because it’s the best brew on offer in a typical Chinese bar, ... Read More>>

Shanghai vs Delhi

mak  May 09, 2014 Comments(1)

While people would like to compare Mumbai with Shanghai , I chose not to , as Mumbai doesnt even come close to the kind of infrastructure Delhi has. As a visitor to Shanghai I found three distinct marvels. One was the Bund area , which had this British touch to it and it can be compared to the Connaught Place in Delhi. The second was the Chinese ... Read More>>

Teaching in the Countryside

adb2014  May 07, 2014 Comments(3)

For some ESL teachers, part of their job responsibilities may be to go on summer or winter camps with their students. That was the case for me with my last company five years ago. It was a winter camp, where we spent two days in the Qing Yuan and Ying De regions respectively. We picked fruit, visited a tea farm, had barbeques and went for boat ... Read More>>

The Chinese Western Bar

juanisaac  May 05, 2014 Comments(1)

At first thought, the idea of opening up a Western-type bar in China should not be hard. However, what is a Western bar? Bars come in variations such as an English or Irish pub, a German biergarten, or Mexican cantina to just any night club. John Jiang, the owner of the New Yesterbar, had such an idea of opening up a Western bar in a small town ... Read More>>
