Forums > Living in Kunming > Finding a mountain bike on a budget

Hey guys,

I have looked at previous threads to find where I can get a decent mountain bike. Xiaong brothers have come up a lot but from what I can understand they sell pretty high-end stuff.

Does anyone have any suggestions about where to find a mountain bike that won't break the bank? Thanks in advance.

Forums > Living in Kunming > The importance of TEFL

Yes, I have a lot of experience teaching but I dont not have a TEFL certificate. My worry is they may have overlooked that so if it is not mentioned in the interview I wonder wether it is worth bringing up? I dont want it to get to the stage of applying for visas before it comes up.

Forums > Living in Kunming > The importance of TEFL

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to pick your brains. I have been teaching abroad now for 9 years and have experience in various institutions ranging from kindergarten up to high school with a few years teaching adults as well.

My question is, how important do you believe it is to have a TEFL certificate to work at higher education institutions in China? I do currently work and live in Kunming but I wonder if in the adsence of having a TEFL certificate, can teaching experience carry you through? I have a degree but it is not in a "related" field (education for example).

Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. I have an interview for a position next week and wonder if the topic of having a TEFL certificate will come up.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
