I have a lot of studying to do for a test next tuesday.

This week has been really stressful because yesterday I had a skills check off where I had to demonstrate putting a nasogastric tube into a manikin and also opening sterile gloves without any contamination. The slightest mistake and you would fail. You get 3 attempts total and if you can't get it done you fail the course completely. But I got through that yesterday morning so I'm feeling good for the moment.

gl studying for your test! how is the material is it going to be v challenging?

lmao okay, you who uses the letter u to mean the word "you" are really asking that? Is it so hard to use a question mark? You can still understand what sus means.

Also, leave sus alone. He's literally the most harmless member of GT (or tied with weid man).

You really don't need to be talking down to anyone about their grammar, given how unbelievably terrible yours usually is. Even what you have just posted is evidence of this.

Is it so hard to capitalize the first letter of the sentence?

Is it so hard to use quotation marks around "very"?

Is it so hard to end the question with a question mark?

Posted February 1st by nullfather

I agree with nul and fox.

whats the going monthly pay rate?

some of these seem too good to be true.

It depends on a few factors.

For example, kindergartens are the majority of schools that want foreign teachers, because they're private businesses and want a foreigner to draw parents who will sign up. They can also pay pretty well, 12-14,000 yuan a month, which is about $2000. But as you can see there are some that go up to 20,000. These schools also don't really care if you work on a tourist visa or something. But they vary in quality, though.

I always taught at universities, which gave me a proper working visa and a free apartment on the university campus. The hours were also good, only about 20 hours a week versus the 40 which is normal at a training school. The salary is only 6 or 7,000 yuan though.

Salaries also depend a lot on the city you're in. Places like Beijing and Shanghai for example have higher salaries, but living costs are higher.

There are various recruiting companies who will place you in these schools. Gold Star English is one, which I saw post on that website.

Also, a lot of those advertisements you'll see are saying free flights round-trip. This is a bit misleading though. What they mean is, you'll pay for the flight there, and they'll pay you back once you arrive. Or, probably, pay it back included in your first paycheck, which you'll receive a month after you arrive. And when you complete a year contract, you'll buy a ticket, show them the receipt, and they'll reimburse you then.

Sorry I didn’t check this post out till now, I feel guilty already, I’ve been too focused on the spirituality forum lately and trying to help the people there when I really should be helping the people out sitewide and not just trying to help people understand spirituality.

Sus you are the most benevolent user here on gametalk and vandy and fox are as well. Don’t let yourself doen. We all love you here and wish we could help you in your daily life. If let you come live with me if possible. Sister married two years ago and moved out to live with her husband so we have an another room here foto lodge in. I’d buy you an iPhone too. Super easy to text from unlike the iPod, can use both thumbs to text very quickly compared to typing on a computer with four different fingers on each hand.

Soh, agis lives in China now. Tell him what you think about Asian wonen. I don’t want to offend you and you know how vulgar I get and I got banned by Helius a few years ago for not complying with his rules here since I was making openly vulgar posts. Do you want to move to China too? Query told me that many Filipino women happen to somehow find his name and added him but he declined since he doesn’t know them at all, which is totally expected since no one adds total strangers. But do you want me to ask them for their names so that you can talk to them since you told us that you’re very interested in them?

Ok I’ll eje in that note, I don’t want to derail sus’s thread here.

sus, you're a treasure

agis, how much chinese should a person be able to speak before taking one of those jobs?

Posted February 2nd by poptart!

That's tough to answer. Knowing Chinese or at least having experience in China would help immeasurably, but the vast majority of people who come here to teach English don't know any.

The schools will meet you at the airport, assign english speaking helpers/co-teachers to help, etc. You'll no doubt pick up words and phrases to help you along in your daily life, if not get really good conversationally, and very good if you practice what little you know and even study it yourself. But many people end up in the expat bubble and not really learning all that much.

In places like Beijing/Shanghai, it's not uncommon for young people to speak at least a bit, so in many situations you can appeal to them for help and they'll oblige because Chinese people are in general very nice and don't like to see a foreigner in distress.

your english is very good agis.. i had no idea you were chinese. for some reason i thought you from the uk

Posted February 2nd by Brandy

I think Agis is from somewhere else (he certainly looks white, lol) but he's IN China to see his girlfriend, I think. I remember him talking about going over to meet or see her family.

Do not be fooled by the color of his skin. Have you not heard of the legend of the white child who would grow up to become the greatest ninja master of all time?
