Most chinese teachers in taiwan are friendly and competent. But I can always find something to complain about so I give you…
The Seven Habits of Highly Annoying Chinese Teachers
1-Select a few dozen english words you will never translate. Pepper your speech with these words even when teaching korean and japanese students. Use them incorrectly.
“ni meiyou banfa ANSWER zheige QUESTION yinwei nide FEEDBACK bugou.”
2-Regail your students with elaborate race theories. Dwell especially on the superiority of taiwanese males to all other asian males.
3- Design a lesson plan. Use it every week. Never deviate. Never ever deviate. Never stray from the following topics: food, beauty, health and fashion.
4- Stick to standard mainland pronunciation. No wait, add extra ERs. Never uncurl your tongue. Encourage your students to correct the pronunciation of native taiwanese.
5- Mention your trip to canada 6 years ago at least once every class. Show off your knowledge of foreign culture. Argue with the foreigners in your class. You know better than they do.
6- If your daughter, son, brother, sister in law or cousin twice removed is studying in America, remind your students twice a day. If he’s going to a “famous school,” three times a day.
7- Refer to your 30-something students as “xiaopengyou” and “guai haizi.”
