xwarrior is no longer with us. He shuffled off his mortal coil in October 2018. He was a good mate.

Yes.  A HUGE miss.

Would you please make an entry into The Memorial Garden?

All jabbed with Sinovac.  agagagagag  Second dose is supposed to be taken in 4-8 weeks.

Citizens get it free.  Still waiting on my paperwork, so I had to pay the pretty nurse 100 RBM to stab me. ahahahahah

No sign of side effects.  She injected it VERY slowly and I don't even have a trace of a bruise or sore spot.

The Bar (ON-TOPIC) / Re: How to Snail Mail a Letter from China to Tunisia?
« Last post by Escaped Lunatic on April 06, 2021, 03:52:47 PM »
Get a letter sized envelope from a stationary/office supply/school supply store and take it to the post office.

Two notes:

1.  Make it VERY clear which address is "To" and which is "From" or you could end up mailing the paper back to your apartment.  Have a Chinese friend assist you in putting To and From both in Chinese and English.

2.  You'll also want to have your friend write Tunisia in Chinese under the To address.  That gets it pointed to the right country and the address as supplied by your banker will be sufficient once the letter is shipped to Tunisia.

It's been awhile since I sent a "normal" letter, but I seem to recall it was only a few RMB (as opposed to quite a lot more for EMS).

Delivery times are typically unpredictable.  Throw in the current pandemic and they are more unpredictable.

The Bar (ON-TOPIC) / Cambridge Kid's Box, Best General English Software?
« Last post by Ivyman on April 05, 2021, 09:55:37 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I was reviewing the site for Kids Box.  I have used it in my training center.

https://www.cambridge.org/hk/cambridgeenglish/catalog/primary/kids-box-updated-2nd-edition

1.  Although part of it is propaganda, the site says:

"It has a partnership with the Cambridge CELTA YL/TKT Young Learner Module."

"It is the only general English learning course for the TKT YL Syllabus" etc.

2.  Do you guys think it is the best for kids?

The Bar (ON-TOPIC) / How to Snail Mail a Letter from China to Tunisia?

Hi Everyone,

I have a bank account in Tunisia.  My lawyer in that country says I need to snail mail a single signed piece of paper.

I need to snail mail it to him.  If it saves me lots of money to do it slow mail, instead of overnight, I can wait two weeks, a month, to get it delivered if need be.

1.  What service should I use in China?

DHL, China Postal Company, etc.?

2.  Can anyone type that info in Chinese, etc.?  I am clueless about how to actually buy it, etc.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are well.

I appreciate the Saloon a lot.

My micro-company, in London, has made a small online course for IELTS.  An ex-examiner for ten years helped make it.

Anyone can PM me, as for the next two weeks, I can give it away for free.

Supposing this really is a great course, that can be sold either for 50 RMB, or given away for free, who would appreciate it most?

Training institutions, students who want to travel abroad, etc.?
