Which English? Which accent?

surenpillai  Oct 16, 2014 Comments(14)

Which English is correct? British or American or Australian or Canadian or South African? As a member of the Queen's English Society, I do not use slang. Nor do I use Americanisms. I keep to standard British English. I spell colour with a u. and I differentiate between practise and practice. I say | təˈmɑːtəʊ | and not | təˈmeɪˌtoʊ | ... Read More>>

The writing on the wall

surenpillai  Oct 15, 2014 Comments(3)

The open mind, the free intellect and the willingness of the heart to embrace humanity as one family. Teaching was, is and will always remain my passion. Knowledge has neither race nor sex nor colour and it is the only wealth that keeps on growing as you keep on giving. Experiences are a form of education, which one gets from the university of ...

Taking a Walk - A Female Expat's Memoir

CAStafford  Oct 03, 2014 Comments(3)

Last night my friend and I were taking a stroll down the streets of Beijing on the way to the park. We do this about every three or four days, and we know the route well. We also know what not to expect – the chance that anyone will speak to us. Why? Because we’re in a big city, we’re not Chinese, and we probably look like we ... Read More>>

The Lonely Life of a Transient Expat

CAStafford  Sep 30, 2014 Comments(10)

I've heard Beijing being described as a "transient" city. It's because people come here to make money, and then go on their merry way, back to where they came from, back to the place where they REALLY want to be. And for the most part, transient people are young people, typically in their early to mid 20's, going on a grand adventure to explore ... Read More>>

First Language

niralikhatri  Sep 29, 2014 Comments(2)

This question came to my mind because I saw some advertisment looking for English teacher in this forum. One of the requirement is that they must be a native speaker. So I start wondering how these people define native English speaker. A very controversial example is Singapore. Singapore was a British colony. After it gained independence from ... Read More>>

A year and a half studying Chinese - my experience thus far

haobuhao  Sep 29, 2014 Comments(2)

I am admittedly extremely new in the world of Chinese language study. A babe even. In university, I studied Japanese and Spanish as minors, and took one semester of Arabic. As you can tell, I have an interest in languages (however poorly I actually speak them), but before I graduated, none of that involved Chinese outside of one or two phrases I ... Read More>>

Dengue fever( also known as break bone fever), not as fun as it sounds.

airyk  Sep 24, 2014 Comments(6)

I got dengue fever a few weeks ago, and I want to write about my experience, but it’s hard. It was traumatic. There were times when I wondered if I would die.

Guangzhou's Nail City (Part 3 of 4)

airyk  Sep 23, 2014

With lunch still settling in our bellies I came back to the nail city with my friend. We headed into the biggest market where the orders for eviction pasted on walls, were as bold as the noon sun, but completely invisible as people passed them by, headed to work, headed to eat, or headed to spend time with their friends in the open spaces ...

Guangzhou's Nail City (Part 2 of 4)

airyk  Sep 22, 2014

Like a thousand thorns stabbed in the side of lion, the nail city buried itself into the ribs of Guangzhou. I went inside, my friend trailing along. We wandered past buildings tumbled like dominos, stories collapsed onto one another, and markets teaming with vendors selling phones and clothes, food and drinks. We passed by homes full of laughing ... Read More>>

adb2014  Sep 22, 2014 Comments(5)

So, where was I? Oh yes, I had already told you about the midnight runner, a guy who stayed for about a week and now, a weird skull collector. As well as being very strange and messy, Evan had very little money and no guarantee of a job when he arrived. At a time when he really should have been working his backside off to plan lessons and make a ... Read More>>

The Nail City (Part 1 of 4)

airyk  Sep 22, 2014

The ladder shivered in the unrelenting wind. I turned around, and looked down. Bad idea. Dozens of stories below, small cars inched by like tiny ants fulfilling the meaning of their lives. My fingers bit into the steel, and I wrapped my arms around the ladder. Rust snowed down as I headed up. One hand at a time, I stayed steady, stayed calm, ... Read More>>

In my six years of living in China, I’ve lived in quite a few apartments of varying quality and with people of very different personalities. The first company I worked for in Guangzhou offered a perfectly liveable wage that allowed me to travel and save money as well. They also provided rent-free apartments so that we weren’t thrust ...

TeacherKim  Sep 11, 2014 Comments(6)

I feel like I've come to the end of a quest without even knowing I was on one. The quest of HOW TO speak English. When I arrived in China I was packing the normal foreign teachers tool kit. Years and years of schooling in English and a TESOL certificate. I believed I had both what and how to teach. I was ready. Unfortunately what I was ready ... Read More>>

I'm not a guest!

rasklnik  Aug 20, 2014

You are not a guest Many, many times we have heard from foreigners and Chinese alike, “You are a guest, and it is not your job to say what is right and wrong here.” Well quite simply you are wrong. It is your duty to do so. We are not Chinese; we were not raised, thankfully in a hideous system of oppression, which refers to the mass ... Read More>>

So, my 2 week break is almost over. Good thing was that I managed to get all my cooking stuff together and cooked most of the days - pasta, guiness stew, seafood paella, etc, all the food that I can't get here. Yum! When school starts again on 11th, I won't have much time to cook, maybe just weekends, so it's back to hot pot again. The 2 weeks ... Read More>>
