I know quite a few people at uni who have put China experience on their CVs.
They have gone through an agency that can provide tourism/study/work, all for a hefty fee of course.
Others I know, are doing a couple of semesters at uni in Beijing and living in Chaoyang Park (where the rich foreigners live).
Part of me is jealous, yes, i admit it. Part of me also thinks: you will leave China and know nothing/very little about the country. What makes me
about it all? A British employer won't be able to differentiate between that and what English teachers go through (the BS we have to put with, etc...).
