"the foreign so called teachers are the rejects of the west...!" (says "Raton")|
I cannot understand why comments such as these are are allowed on this site. Comments
of this sort are in the majority here which does, in effect, render this site and its contributors
with about the same level of intelligence and capability of debate as that of a chimpanzee's
tea-party. I stopped posting here a few weeks ago due to an upsetting and plainly ignorant post. This was made by a foreigner (like me) who had clearly been here many years but didn't know shit from clay.
Sweeiping statements seem to be the mainstay of sites such as these. Perhaps they are tolerated as they encourage more people to enter the heated, yet futile, debate.
I can get a teaching job in NZ, Australia or the UK anytime I want. I can get more pay and, when I want - I can get a pie, a decent pork sausage, a hunk of cheddar, sliced bread not riddled with sugar, and some bloody sour cream for my curries.
But I came to China. And yes, I wanted the experience - who wouldn't? And I didn't choose to gravitate to Beijing or Shanghai so I could spend my evenings knocking it back in western-style pubs. I am out in the wop-wops. 50 mins out of Nanjing.
The students here get my fullest attention. 17 contact (class) hours a week, at least 12 houirs spent preparing, setting homework and marking. Another 10 hours in Office, being there for any student who wishes to pop in and ask questions or get extra help. Extra hours are spent in helping with extra-curricular activities. Then I go back to my flat and pop a few things in a wok for tea.
