And so it begins....a new semester...

louischuahm  Aug 23, 2014

Come Monday and the madness will be looking for their classes, some will be lost, inevitably. The day begins early with students needing to report to Student Affairs to get their personal pack containing textbook lists, stationery, uniforms, class locations etc. This will probably take half a day to get settled. Students' briefing ... 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>>

Back to school...

louischuahm  Aug 10, 2014 Comments(8)

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>>

Why Teaching?

azmirh  Aug 04, 2014 Comments(1)

You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself. – Galileo Well it’s very true, as 'teaching' people can sometimes have devastating effects on their life. It is sometimes wrong to teach anyone but a willing student, people will rebel and are right to. Who the hell is anyone to decide who needs to be ... Read More>>

Complaining Makes Us All Look Bad

hadleyj09  Jul 28, 2014 Comments(58)

Throughout my time here in China, I have always wondered why so many people who come to teach in China tend to not like it. I hear so many people who comment on my posts about how there are so many bad things going on in China, and how China should become a better country. Well, here’s the thing. You’re here for a reason and the fact ... Read More>>

Chongqing semester ends...

louischuahm  Jul 27, 2014 Comments(7)

School's out and everyone has gone home. Some of the kids have gone overseas to the US or UK, probably to check out the universities they wil be going to next year. For me, it's been a hectic four months but I must say it was rewarding since I can see kids really putting in effort to understand what they study. Life as a teacher here isn't that ... Read More>>

adb2014  Jul 26, 2014 Comments(15)

Relationships between Western men and Chinese women aren’t uncommon in China these days.

Poetic Surrender

amit83  Jul 11, 2014 Comments(1)

Barking windows framed to an offense Distant fading ghosts in a burlap, black gulls Moaning trove of moving sand, and Moonstruck, shadows as thick as bloating tar. And I have worn this in, like winter boots, And swallowed it whole, like a raw string bean, I must ask, was it just the crimes we committed That froze your eyes in so steady a gaze? ... Read More>>

China: First Year Finished

hadleyj09  Jul 03, 2014 Comments(27)

Looks like I have survived just about a year in China, and life has been interesting. There have been many things I have learned about being an adult outside of my own country. The number one thing I have learned is that I am the foreigner. That may seem obvious, but if you are ever looking to live in another country, that is what you must ... Read More>>

Running Races in China

joemarch  Jun 26, 2014 Comments(1)

Do you run for exercise? Do you like to run races, such as 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathons? As China is still a developing country, there aren't many running races yet. Western countries host thousands of running races each year. They're in nearly every city in the west in the summer months and year round in the warm climate states. I ... Read More>>

Culture means discipline, sacrifice in China

ChefKitten  Jun 24, 2014 Comments(1)

A friend recently observed that while people of other nationalities seem to love and enjoy their own cultures, most Chinese people think of their culture mostly in terms of a burden or set of restraints and obligations, and not as something very enjoyable at all. In fact, even the word culture doesn't really translate well, because it means ... Read More>>

My Kung Fu Adventure

RealKungFu  Jun 23, 2014 Comments(2)

So I've been learning kung fu for a while now and whenever I travel throughout China it surprises me how few people actually know you can do kung fu full time here. Since I arrived in China, I've travelled all over China and met heaps of kung fu masters, trained in schools and with individual masters. So I thought I'd make a post to let people ... Read More>>

Walking the Great Wall of China

bobby_7  Jun 19, 2014 Comments(5)

Nobody ever mentions how steep the Great Wall of China is. You hear a lot about its age and its length, but the sheer vertical drop? Not so much. It doesn't look all that intimidating from the pictures, either, flanked by red-gold foliage or dusted with snow, lazily weaving in and out of view along the rolling peaks of China's northern frontier. ...

Finding non-ESL jobs as a non-white foreigner in China for lower pay?

aeynzmaar  Jun 18, 2014 Comments(2)

The process seems to be easier said than done. I so far have had one very enthusiastic person want to find out if I would work for his program, but the minute I stated I wanted the same salary he printed in his job post, he dissappeared. I've heard other stories of similar things happening. Sounds a lot like how things are in the US. So it seems ... Read More>>

A (RANT-ish) Blog: Teaching in China

hadleyj09  Jun 12, 2014 Comments(33)

If you’re here to teach, then TEACH (RANT) People come to China as English teachers for a various number of reasons. Some come to escape from home, to make money, to travel throughout China and Asia, or they come here on a whim and hope for the best. All of these reasons, in my opinion, are legit for being here. However, if you are here as ... Read More>>
