Forums > Living in Kunming > Relaxing the requirements?

Going back to the original OP question, no I don't think they have relaxed the requirements. It is just the schools that have become desperate giving that summer school is almost here and they need teachers.

Teaching is just not a good profession nowadays. Just watch tons of videos on Youtube or Youku. Perhaps tutoring is a better option. Private lessons where the student actually wants to learn. Maybe 30-40 years ago teaching was a good profession but nowadays no way.

You must be on 'dope' or 'dog food' if you think there's nothing wrong with someone 'stealing' your ideas/lesson plans and making it their own. Doing this leads to less incentive to push one's creativity. Heck why use your brains when you can just copy someone else's work and call it your own. Some examples: Google/Baidu, ICQ/Wechat,Twitter/Weibo, etc. The list goes on and on. Of course not all school/training centers do this but I'm sure many do. I'm glad I'm not a teaching anymore. As I mention before, teaching is not a good profession to aspire to either in China or in the U.S.A.

I completely believe it's as bad as he says. There are those that suffer in silence. It's not like you can sue the school and win. There are many schools and training centers that want

you to create a lesson plan and submit it to them all for the purpose of stealing it and translating it in Chinese/English for their Chinese teachers. Then they fire the foreigner teachers. Teachers beware!

I think that for a long time there has been a 'fantasy' aspect to coming to another country to teach. When I came to China it wasn't to teach but to learn Chinese. In my mind China was exotic, mysterious. Of course that was just my lack of actual understanding of Chinese culture. Fast forward 13 years later. China is fast losing it's charm in my opinion. It's becoming more and more like the west(in the way it looks and acts). Even the culture is being erased with every year that passes (IMHO). Maybe it's just me living here so long that I no longer find this place so special (still special but not so much).
