Well, at the game café we have a Foreigners' night on Tuesday from 7pm.
We have all sort of board games, and close to 150 different one. I'm personnaly a big fan of strategic games. Some of my personal favourites at the moment are Endeavor, Imperial 2030, settlers of Catan. In general I'm good to play any games as long as they are not brain dead games :) I can teach a lot of the games i have.
About Visa on Passport, I will have to disagree with nnoble. I had the experience a few years back of a valid visa on a passport that ran out of validity with a new passport. The customs officers were not too happy about it, seems it generates more work for them, but i enter the country without problem.
When the consulat issued me the new passport I pointed out to them that the old one had my current visa, so they gave it back to me (cutting the top-right corner) with the new passport.
One year contract with 6 months payment up front should not be that difficult to find. Real estate agent are almost impossible to avoid if you want your own place, unless you are already in kunming and have an extensive network of chinese friends. If you send me a message with what you are looking for maybe I can give you a helpful tips, a decent estate agent and an area you did not think of but that fit your needs.
I also had a quick review of your questionnaire.
Tiger judgement might be a bit harsh but there are reasons for it. Like him I felt the survey was too loaded for me to be comfortable about answering it.
It seems that you have underestimated the importance of the question phrasing. Your questions are not neutral, they are "loaded", the "right" answer is induced in the way you asked your questions.
After reading your survey I think it says a lot about your pedagogic bias. It is an interesting piece of chinese discourse about language learning. At such it will probably have some value for outsider researchers. However, your survey value to prove of disprove your hypothesis is highly questionable.
Besides the loaded questions, your survey is pretty long, many questions are open to interpretation, and some terms are extremely culturally defined/loaded.
My guess is that you are a major in linguistic and you did not took the time to talk with a fellow student with a major in social research.
Sorry about the strong criticism but someone has to tell you.
I wish you that those criticism will allow you to improve your survey.
All the best
No results found.
Actually there is nothing Bizarre. French Tarot is NOT the thing english speakers know as Tarot. French Tarot is a very popular card game in France, nothing esoteric about it.
So English speakers play a popular english game while French speakers play a popular french game :)
We listen to criticism and improve ourselves. Now we have a new lunch menu, come to check it out.
Chingis and DanTheMan comments refers to an earlier post I did regarding a few bad reviews we got last years when we hit a bump in the road.
