Why not work for a Chinese company?
You have learned a few words of English, now you are too good for the Chinese?
Do I see another dumb 'educated' twerp selling out the Motherland?


You're the one who's dumb.
Wanzheli said he wants to improve his job prospects in China.

I'd agree with Longzhou, add a few languages to your bag.

I think that if Wanzheli learned French, he'd have an edge over others.
French companies visiting China for business would surely prefer to hire a trilingual local who had French, English and Mandarin, rather than hire the usual English speaking Chinese local and have to communicate with him/her in English.

Good luck Wanzheli.

Most spoken languages around the world (this can be argueable, but should be quiet accurate!);

1) Mandarin
2) English
3) Hindi
4) Spanish
5) Arabic
6) Russian
7) Portuguese
8) Bengali
9) ...




I suggest learn Hindi instead ( according to this list.) .

Most Chinese companies pay poorly for their employees. Here's the ascending order about the payment for the same position / level.

1. Mainland-funded companies;
2. Taiwan-funded companies;
3. Singapore-funded companies, & Japanese funded companies
4. Amercian-funded companies;
5. European-funded companies.

I don't submit my Chinese resume any more. I want to make more money from foreign ghosts, who are better than those harsh and penny-pinching Chinese money bags.
