actually there are a lot of places in china that will take those who do not have a degree, I have been offered many jobs even in the big city's, often you will be payed less then someone who would have one but that is usually the only diff in china.
that is in the Geographical profiles in the employment handbook (the orange one). other countries are: Indonesia Vietnam Laos Cambodia Chile Argentina Brazil Columbia Ecuador Peru Mexico Nicaragua Bolivia Honduras are a few. Note my info is a little out of date (2008) things might have changed.
你好嗎 Anthony？我佷好。I am learning a lot in my mandarin course and my teacher 林老是 is really nice. Anyways how are your classes going? Are you going to make anymore videos on youtube? They were really helpful. Anyway just wanted to say hi and check up!
I already have my shots (i had planned to go last year but in the end could not afford the plane ticket. I know what you mean about people not getting out there no one from my TESOL classes last year are out yet, the closest someone has got was one of us became an ESL teacher in Canada for foreign exchange students.
I wasn’t sure if I should contact them yet because I have signed up for 2 semesters of university class. I figured I would contact them in late March or April just before my classes end so I can hopefully go over as soon as I am out of school. Since I didn’t know about them earlier I had already paid for my classes.
One of my classes is a Mandarin class and I’m taking Asian-Pacific rim in geography so I am very excited to attend.
Do you think I should send them my information now instead?
I have some questions about the Chinese culture for you. Ive hard form some sources that in the Chinese culture touching the top of the head is a bad thing. Ive also hear that there is no cheese in China! Are these rumors true? and are there any other cultural taboo's I should know about?
Ya, the only problem with the bucklandgroup is they want 2 years job experience since I'm attending university the only job I have is a part-time one for my school's English department that and they want you to have your bachelor. I'll send them my info anyways and we'll see what happens.
oh WOW!!! I'm so excited to go to china now! (I'm literally trembling in my seat!) I was so nervous because last time I tried to go I knew nothing and had very little idea of what to do and TESOL was not helping me at all. If I didn't have university courses set up for this year I'd try and get a contract right now! Eeek! You've made me so happy!
I just wanted to express my gratitude for you taking the time to answer all my questions.
When I was asking about the video taping I was just thinking that in Canadian schools you can't take pictures without parental permission not to mention video tape.
Also you have to pay for the temporary tourist VISA as well as airfare, right?
