Quora精选:在中国生活有哪些优点是国外比不了的?

一、薪水

Your salary. I get paid pretty much equalto what I would in the USA($40-45k) as a history teacher at a local school,which includes a stipend forhousing and round-trip flight home every year...but my salary goes further here.

薪水。我在当地一所学校当历史老师,我的薪水和我在美国差不多(40-45K美刀),其中包括住房和每年往返机票等补贴...但钱在这里更经用。

At home, I could hardly afford an apartment (I'm from New Jersey)because I hadstudent loans, car payments, car insurance, rent, utilities,etc.

在美国,我连公寓几乎都住不起(我来自新泽西州),因为我有助学贷款,汽车贷款,汽车保险,房租,水电等。

二、饮食

The food. I left Shanghaifor a year for another job and that iswhat I missed most. All the regionalcuisines (Hunan, Sichuan, Yunnan, Dongbei,Taiwanese, Xinjiang, Tibetan) aredelicious and fantastic. I can also get a widerange of international cuisineswithin 5km of my apartment (Thai, Vietnamese,Vegan, Organic,Japanese, French, Italian, Mediterranean, Spanish, Mexican,Turkish, Moroccan,Indian, Malaysian, Singaporean, etc. etc.) and, for the mostpart, arereasonably priced.

美食。当我因另一份工作离开上海一年时,这是我最怀念的。所有的地方菜系(湖南,四川,云南,东北,台湾,新疆,XZ)都无比好吃。在我住的公寓5公里范围内就可以吃到各国美食(泰国,越南,素食,有机,日本,法国,意大利,地中海,西班牙,墨西哥,土耳其,摩洛哥,印度,马来西亚,新加坡,等等,等等),并在大多数情况下,价格公道。

Shanghai is more expensive than Beijing and peopleherealways complain about inflation, especially with cost of food. However,witheverything else being relatively cheap, I don't mind spending $15-30 onaWestern restaurant brunch which includes a bloody Maryor two... (not the fourstar crazy buffets... they are $80-100)

上海物价比北京更贵,这里的人也总是抱怨通货膨胀,尤其是在吃的上花费。然而,其他一切是相对便宜,我并不介意花15到30刀在一间西餐厅享受一个早午餐,来上一两杯鸡尾酒...(当然不是那些疯狂的四星级酒店自助餐......那得 80到100刀)

Convenience. You don't have time to clean your house or do yourlaundry? Hirean ayi (maid/nanny) ... Mine costs about $6/hr ... You don't wantto go to yourfavorite restaurant for dinner because the pollution is bad? Don'tworry, youcan have it delivered. There are many restaurant delivery serviceswhere youcan order online and someone goes to get your order from therestaurant andbrings it to you...

便利。你没有时间打扫房间或洗衣服?可以请阿姨(保姆) ...只需花费 6刀每小时......你不想去你喜欢的餐厅吃饭,因为外面污染很重?别担心,你可以叫外卖。许多餐厅提供外卖服务,你可以在网上下单,就有人会送到你手上...

You don't want to go to theforeign supermarket?You can orderonline and have it delivered. You don't want to go to the store tobuy bottledwater? You can have it delivered. You don't want to spend $100s on anew suit?Bring a picture to the fabric market and they'll make it for $10s. Youwant todo a juice cleanse? You can buyone and have it delivered to you everyday. You can get a lot of things donefor you if you know how... And the listkeeps growing!

你不想去超市?你也可以在网上订购然后快递。你不想去商店买矿泉水?你也可以叫快递。你不想花上100多刀买一套新衣服?可以把衣服图片拿到面料市场,只需要10几刀他们就能帮你做好同样的衣服。你想要做喝果汁减肥?你可以订购然后每天都会送上门。只要你知道方式,很多事情都可以搞定......这个名单可以无限增加!

四、语言和文化

Culture/Language.Living in the middle of Shanghai means that I interactwith the local cultureevery day. I've learned to read and speak enough Mandarinto haggle in markets,order in restaurants, talk to taxi drivers, haveconversations about where I'mfrom and what I do, navigate around the city, etc.It can be very frustratingsometimes, and I know if you are in your expatbubble, you don't even have to speakany Mandarin at all, but I like what I'veexperienced.

语言和文化。住在上海意味着我与当地文化每天亲密接触。我学会的普通话已经足够应付在市场里讨价还价、餐厅里点菜以及和的士司机闲聊。聊一些关于我来自哪里、我做些什么等。尽管有时聊天会令人很沮丧,我也知道如果只生活在老外的圈子里,你可以根本不会讲中文,但是我喜欢我的体验。

I speak Mandarin everyday and as a history teacher, I find livingand experiencing the changes inChina to be fascinating. You can see the impactthe past has had on the currentgovernment and how the economic changes arepaving the way for a new China toemerge... it's great to be here and experienceall of the energy...

作为历史老师我每天都说普通话,我觉得生活在中国和体验中国的变化让人陶醉。你可以看到历史对当前政府的影响,你也可以看到经济的变化是如何为新中国铺平了道路…我很有幸正在这里体验着所有的活力…
