"Pitch in under three ira and now he's regressing back to where he is in what he's done or when he started to do against houston last week. I'm fine with that if he does that again tomorrow. Because i think he's on track to start tomorrow so so on that note. I think that what we saw from from stephen matt's over the weekend on against the astros anyways that was a typical stephen matt. Start you hope over five or six innings and him well enough to keep you in the ball game and you just kind of hope the offense is gonna get you that four or five runs and in this case said they got five. It's and got eight runs. Perfect sold that it up so but that one thing i do want to point out too is we were just talking about the bullpen on this one to jordan. Romano adam injury. That game was the last rough outing we've seen since he's been dominant since that point. Yeah yet few hudson whatnot the other night and it just kind of like extended the outing. But i didn't. I didn't lose confidence during that. But we'll get that the minute so but i'll also in that game trial chat guys. Has he just been completely on cruise control. Or is it just me. He's been unreal eastman absolutely unreal. And you know i. I've really been talking up. David phelps this year. I i always mention tyler. Woods name whenever i bring phelps but i know he's been injured. The last few weeks by chat weather surpassed them like crazy. Just every single time chat would comes in. I'm not expected him to give up any runs. Heck. i'm not even expecting him to walk anybody anymore. Which is the craziest thing. He's attacking zone. They had mike petrello on from statcast. And then we'll be dot com yesterday on blue central and the cutter.

National New Hampshire Day with Matt and Emilio Barnard

"So each week, one of my podcast friends challenged me to find an episode related to one of those days and I'll be releasing it on the actual date occurs. So let's get to it. What is today's National Day? Hey Paul Matt. NFL. Bernard here we just got back from an awesome week into Hampshire Estate Near and dear to our hearts I'll there and my grandparents still live there. But neither of US are New Hampshire natives we have questions where in the PODCAST universe can we turn to learn more about the Grad State? Well Matin Amelio you've come to the right place but before I give a recommendation I'm going to give a little back story to everyone. When I started this podcast I decide that my guess would be podcasters not just people in the podcast. Matinee have been running mates since very early on going to last two podcasts movements together. But. He didn't have a podcast. So I never asked him to be a guest. Did Matt Start as podcasts just to be a guest on my show, the answer would be revealed later but let's talk about living free or dying I or at least pumpkins. Today. September seventh is national. New Hampshire. Day. I think a great place to start finding podcasts about New Hampshire is the outside in podcast which is made by new. Hampshire public. Radio. Now. It's not exclusively about things from New Hampshire but there are obviously New Hampshire base stories like this one. This episode talks about the Guinness Book of Records Event Were Keen New Hampshire holds a US record for most Jack Lantern in one place at one time. The town held an annual festival and everyone loved it. But as it got bigger and bigger so did the problems I mean if you've got over four thousand pumpkins around that can't be safe right? quaint was no longer the operative word. To find out what happened give it a listen, and let me know what you think by using the National New Hampshire Day Hashtag. Today's guests floral are Matin Amelia Barnard. As I mentioned Matt never had a podcast but due to the pandemic he decide to have some fun with his son with their free extra time and the Barnard's on the NBA podcast was born. In each episode Matinee, choose to colleges with well-known basketball programs and compare their famous alumni to see which school would come out on top. Many years ago I was a big college basketball fan and I still go to the big east championship every year when a pandemic isn't raging I also went to two final four tournaments many years ago. One. was in Atlanta and the other was in New Orleans, of course. So listening to this podcast gives some great of those times. For the episode I'm recommending it's the mismatch between Ucla and Oregon State. Since nothing is free in this world, I'm going to request that Matt and Amelia do an episode pitting Villanova and ruckers against each other. Short seems a little one-sided, but don't sleep on Rucker's there who history has some highlights amidst a lot of lowlights. For. Last recommendation, Matin Amelia recommend the Hollinger and Dunkin NBA show is debating the NBA's best they say and I quote.

"Best best of luck to that you know i have you know having having a having a you know a mixed background you know i i definitely understand. You know how that goes. You know american guy with an asian girl. How original now. I'm just. I'm just teasing you. That i love so you now. Yeah those asian girls. I get you sometimes so I'm going to start wrapping this up in a few here so So people can stop. They can stop enjoying the brakes. I'm too this is probably the most edited podcast episode over time where to edit out chunks of this interview because we didn't get the audio right but you know it's you know we don't need people doing everything perfect we just need people more people doing things imperfectly. That's a quote. I always like to hear so doing is is is better than not doing And so You said you have five months off That's it sounds like you have really you know if you have five months off then you wurley work seven months out of the year from my mouth right Say that's probably the most boss schedule i've ever heard You're getting paid more during the time. So you're almost your income It almost sounds like you're maybe getting like seventy or eighty percent of the income. You got for working fulltime at the last school so if you amortize over the year so that's that's pretty amazing Let's let's end this And we'll have to do it part to with the online stuff and i promise. I'll fix the audio. Let's end this. With what your what is your immediate plans. it's july fifth And two thousand nineteen You just left your school so you you have a little bit of time off for the school year starts. What's your plan there and then during these During the fall or winter months when you are off a you know what is your would your plans then so four. I'm going to the us Next week on thursday. And i'm going to be there for almost three weeks so i have to. Then after that i'm rushing back to china because i have to do stuff for my visa. A minute company told me. I started things a little too late so i actually like. Things are going to be rushed. Maybe shit can go wrong. Which i'll definitely keep you updated on but the girl who's helping me think if i do everything correctly i should be okay. So the comeback to china do some stuff didn't have august off. She told me that she doesn't know yet. But i might either have to be stuck in china in all of august. Because i might be in the middle of my visas stretching over which pretty upset about because i wanted to travel in august. I have the whole month off to do that in asia. Actually on if If i don't have to be stuck in china. I want to visit you in bali and i want you visit our friend joe in taiwan undeserved. That's i don't have anything sense. Don't at all. Because i'm waiting this shit but hopefully i can do that. I have absolutely no plans for next winter. I'm just gonna see figure that out when that comes. But if i m stuck china i'll definitely travel around a little bit because i i'm not gonna just sit in my apartment for a whole month off. I'm definitely gonna travel around. I haven't been to beijing or shanghai yet. There's also like more rural places china. I really want you to visit our plan on doing tax. But yeah that's that's my dad. When i go to america from new york so i'm just going to hang out in new york for a few weeks probably i are doing like i. Don't traveling around america too much Andy was pretty much it. Okay that sounds like some really really fun plans. I i do. I do hope to see you in bali in august just to give everyone in you my plans. I mean i could always cut this later but Yes so i'm here in In quantum poor After i get my passport. I i was really. I was not happy having to be here just because it wasn't an op. It wasn't a choice. Just like you're talking about being stuck in china turns out bad but then you're like oh well then you have limited choices so i kind of thought. Well you know. I kind of want to teach in korea and i feel like one day i can convince him to to join me there but i won't hold my breath so So i said i if i did it. I'd wanna do masan. And not that. I've ever been to bussan so i thought maybe i should at least go to bussan For some period of time you know a week two three weeks. So that's on the radio radar right now. I don't i don't know if that'll come to fruition at like two and then alma head back to bali. I think i'm going to be

"And i met with the other day because i am actually switching my visa to a new company and she i was talking her and she told me that eight out of ten people though seven hundred and ten people who she is who she is in charge of our resigning which is good for her because she doesn't have to deal with like helping new people move so i was one of the three who's not but I'm not. I'm not staying. I'm just reaching schools in cities but yeah most people do stay so i think it is an easy place to make deep connections rather than people. Just come and go. I feel like when you're in more backpacker countries like thailand vietnam I know you live in bali. Like they'll place those types of places people do tend to just visit and leave tried as more of a place where people were long-term. Gotcha no that's good and any any interest in learning The chinese language is that has that ever Have you ever considered that. I when i first got here. I was learning Twice a week. I was taking lessons. I was actually doing pretty well with it but It was on the weekends at like eight. Am that was the only time. This girl is available and it was pretty far from me so it took me like thirty to forty minutes to get there so i was waking up earlier to go learn chinese than just go to work in the morning and this is every weekend so after like two months starting to get pretty burnt out for mitt. I just. i didn't want to wake up at six o'clock in the morning and learn chinese everyday like so. I switched tutors Because i still wanted to learn language. So i switched tutors. But the second tutor. She knew she meant. She just started teaching chinese. Like i was one of her first students. I didn't. I didn't like the way she was teaching. I can tell. Because i'm a teacher has also. It especially to another language. I know you have to be very patient. You have to talk very slowly. You have to give the student a chance to talk this girl. Who was teaching me. She was super friendly. Nothing against her but she is always talk over me. She never really gave me a chance to like make mistakes. And i'm currently dating was chinese girl and she's like now you have to learn like you can't live in china and not even tried so i guess i gotta try. Oh we got some breaking news there some girls. I didn't even know this. How about the question of how is my quality of life. If i go to china to teach english. And i don't know chinese you know how do you are you ever feel limited or do you feel like you can get up and you know. Have your normal routine. Go to the gym. You know. go to your Starbucks or whatever coffee shop and and not really feel like e e extra work or do or do you are how do you feel. Search out of all the countries have been too. I think china has the lowest amount of english. I mean they're the most people in the country so technically they might have the most english-speakers but they most people in daily direction do not speak a word of english. But i don't think it affects me whatsoever. I i always like before. I go to a country. I watch videos in reblog about these places off. You don't know basic chinese idear soft like you're not gonna be able to to get around that's bullshit. There's so much technology now as cell phones anything you can get by doing. Absolutely anything I i don't think. I need to speak any chinese to buy. It

"Last year. This year i I didn't get as much now. The new one. I'm working for. They're paying a law over a thousand dollars which is not how much it costs to go from new york to china. So i'm i'm pretty happy about that. So the flight are also health insurance that honestly confuses me a little bit still so like we have social insurance so i think if you go to the hospital and you get really sick you can apply to have your money refunded. But i've gone to the hospital a few times and by the hospital like people in asia china. They go to the hospital for just colds or anything. It's not like a again america gordon. The kind of big deal. But so i went to the hospital three times in china and i pay out of pocket. It's not it's not too expensive like my friend. Just got a cat scan the other day and it was like it was like eighty dollars. I can't imagine a cat scan with no health insurance in america. How much that would cost. So i don't really think you need insurance. But i'm pretty sure. The company covers some stuff. I i really don't know the extent to it. I've asked people have never really got a clear answer. But i'm pretty sure if something serious happens you are covered but for little things. Maybe you just pat a pocket which is which is not anyway. Okay gotcha. so you don't you you don't pay out you. Don't pay anything. Any premiums monthly for anything else on top of that any kind of travel insurance or anything like that correct. Yeah i leave china. I should get it. Because i don't think that like anything. I all any of my insurance. I do have in china would not cover me anywhere else except okay mainland china. Hong kong taiwan. Or you can either okay. So when you leave china you you get a temporary travel insurance or something like that or that the. Yeah yeah. there's a there's a couple of out there so let's talk about relationships matt now. I'm not talking about you. Know the you know your ex girlfriend like that. I'm talking about making connections with The people and of other foreigners Are you the. Are you the only english teacher in your school. How do you. How do you get to meet other people. Yeah so like like you said you didn't wanna talk about my ex girlfriend which is fine but for the first time in my life. I'm on my own in a foreign country so it was a little different for me meeting people so when we we both did come to china together and we did need other foreigners You were we meet for like a week or two. Start off in and make friends mo- a lot of schools in china especially public schools. You are the only four teacher in your school. Maybe there's one other one. But usually just one i am the only one at high school and i'm okay with that i. I don't mind like not having not not the most social person in the world so sometime soon needs okay to not to do not interact with someone all the time. It's fine but How i make friends i mean. I'm made a made a friend. Two really good friends. Pretty quick of one was in my company while they were both. I met him with my ex girlfriend. We got along really well so that was cool and then actually another foreigner lived right across the hall from me in my apartment and we became close friends to. They're both americans So that's how i met down but there's plenty of bars where you can go in me. Foreigners there's tons of events like on facebook or we chat groups That you can easily meet up with other people like on things like if you go hiking you wanna play board games. Just things you're interested in you can meet other farmers but for the first time in my life. I wanted to just meet chinese people. I wanted to just meet locals. I in all the places i lived. Most of my friends were my ex girlfriend and just people from like other. Foreigners sources crew. I'm gonna. i'm gonna really integrate myself into culture. So i was hanging out with people from my school. I mean honestly. I went on tinder. I met i met some girls. That's i've never done that before. But that's a really good way to meet people like especially when you're in a foreign country it works really wealthed. Culture thing is awesome too but is nonexistent in china. I especially in change. Maybe maybe in beijing shanghai shenzhen is non-existent. You only get events in hong kong so and other cities to it's nonexistent. So yeah just been hanging out with more chinese people than informs but you can easily make four hundred friends. All all. All of the people i know. Do have tons of friends from facebook's from we chat groups from the company. it's. It's very with with that like i guess the other question the questions would be. Do you think you can make deep connections with people. Do these people stay or do you think it's a bit. Transient where you know. People have the one contract they and there's always people leaving. Do you think there's has has have you met people that have stayed there for a long time or put. Stay there for a while. I think a lot of people do stay. Every person i have met is staying again at war they are. They've been there for a year before already so most people don't just stay. Obviously there are certain people that do do that. But for the most part they don't like for example i have a specialist from my company who Who who's in charge like twelve different teachers so we have trouble if we have questions. Contact is corrupt. So she's in. Charge of ten other teachers. And i met with

"I. I'm babbling This only new. No it makes sense because there was one part that was cut off but Get back to the second. 'cause i know you guys want to know but i like that thought process because basically you're saying you know get in you know you have the visa you have. You have like a nice little base pay and then when you decide hedo. I want to make a little bit more money. You have a couple options right. You can teach part time at training center. You could decide to go back on online. I mean that's an option As well and so you have options and you're more flexible because instead of committing to More hours for the rest of the year. You can say you know what You know this month You know. I want to take that big trip so month wanted that big trip so i'm gonna do maybe another extra ten hours a week on online or commit to some other academy is that is that make sense is that you're you're so much better saying clearly and speaking so slowly ed i'm just reading through it but yeah that's that's you make much more money doing part time. Work tutoring one. On one to know that when i first came i was teaching online and then someone told me how much i make working at a training. So this is my public school so it was just a good situation where publishable At and making a pretty good amount of money and still not really teach too much okay. Let's see that's a good tip Hopefully i can use any of that because it did. It did slow down a bit but The other question too is the big one that got really cut off. I apologize for the pretty audience. Here we're just trying to get through it you know. Sometimes it's just isn't pretty but The the what you said was because you through a lot of numbers out and i there was like more ambitious and like it. It the trans. The conversions are kind of Changing so what i heard. Was you make twenty three hundred dollars a month. Us but it's taxed and you only make thirteen hundred or was thirteen hundred thirteen thousand army which is about two thousand us dollars enough to okay. So you make about two thousand and it's taxed okay so we got clearly and then housing was or was not included in that. So how tim like. It's included so overall. I would make fifteen. Thousand and housing is included in that fifty. Okay but when you say included i apologize. Say it's included. You mean you they They give it to you on top of the payment or you have to pay for a place with the money. You're getting paid. Yeah you have to pay with the money. So the fifteen thousand. That's all you're getting. You have to get your own apartment with ever your house. Okay gotcha because in some other countries like korea they actually give you They don't i don't think they pay you as much but they give you an apartment and beyond the experience. How was that apartment by the way in korea yeah My apartment was unbelievable. It was the best department. I've ever had in my life. It was it had a huge living room. A huge kitchen three bedrooms which. I don't need that. Many bedrooms two bathrooms. It was amazing. It was it was great but the way all my other shitty experience didn't didn't matter that i could have lived in Anywhere that's not the main thing. I was going to work every day. Not having a good time so The apartment was awesome but It's not worth the way i was treated there. What do you think that you could have airbnb. Those other rooms illegally airbnb really works. Can you do that. Like i have a free apartment create. I'm sure i could have no problem. Well there you go guys there you go There's there's there's you can. Actually you can couch surf your place so if you ever want to have interactions just let you guys know if you're teaching matt. I'm just giving advice to matt. You know like he doesn't already know but yeah he could. he could open as a place for couch surfing. Get some some interesting people for his videos. So we'll check that out as well so we talked about payment. We talked about housing and experience Do they pay for your flight there. Do they pay for health insurance. Is there any any other benefits. Okay so yes they do pay for your flight there The it's not a round trip to pay for you to get there or they'll just give you a certain amount of money so basically You they'll either you get to choose like okay. I'm willing to pay for my ticket. Whatever it was or they'll give you a certain amount of money and you can do what you want with that So yeah and it depends on the company like the company. I worked for

"Find a school or a company. That doesn't require office hours. So because if you have a class two or three you just show up to three and then you go home. And that's that's how the best way to do it my school. That high worked for They require Our might company also sunday required office hours. In the beginning. I would show up in office. I sit there all day. But i lived five minutes walking from my school and you know i started to get a little loose. I guess i just didn't care as much showers. Come in with my class trying to leave. I was told a few times like mad. You need to be here. And i and i get it. It's the rules. I know how it works. Where they kinda tell you to do something even if it makes no sense and a lot of foreigners just like okay. But i learned to. I don't want to tell you can ask open. I learned Kinda fight back. Because they're they're not confrontational. You say like all. I have other things. I'm studying for other things. I need to do this. The tell my story yet in korea. But i was just taking all the shit like you have to do. So you have to go okay. Okay okay. and that didn't help me at my situation. Now i know just speak up and say i filling. It usually works out for you so a typical day. You could be at school from anywhere from one to two hour. Worsted eight nine hours on this situation of the school. Okay and when you did have office hours did you do. Were you able to do anything productive. You know on your youtube channel or other hobbies or did you re able to fill that time with you know things that you did you had hobbies for or no absolutely so. That was one of the questions i asked before. Even signing with a company before moving to china. I said okay. You're forcing me to be there all day on. I allowed to do whatever i want. 'em to edit my videos. I'm allowed to watch tv. I don't. I don't usually watch tv in office but mostly just do other works for mighty channel and they said yeah absolutely. You can do that. Because i have worked at like in thailand in korea. You weren't allowed to do other types of work. Which i hate it because i was just wasting my time in china they let you do whatever you want. Which is very lenient on. What you're doing is only you're sitting there and you're showing your your white face. That's that you exists like you. Can you can do whatever you want. So i i do like that. I'm not okay do you. Do you think that not that. It would probably be practical. But do you think you could have taught online in your office hours. No way very seven other teachers in there so okay. Yeah that would definitely would have been funny if you if you do that. So and so you you you. We talked about december. You said march really when it got rolling and then you. When did you actually get the school like when did you was the final confirmation that this is the school you're going to. This is your start date. Yes so we we knew we would have to fly there at the end of august mid to the end of august and then they told us they didn't know the name of our schools but we got Like the the the metro. Stop where we did. We get the name of our schools and we looked them up. And i think we got that at the end of july so we didn't know our schools to the end of july. But sometimes you. You might not know your school until literally a day before your though like this year school. Go there so don't expect to know your school right away. So when we're you like officially approved for the program then without medicine is that may or april or yes so i got hired by the company in like december. But that doesn't mean anything you have to do all the like visa stuff you have to like notarized your bachelors degree notarize. You've got to have a criminal background. Check notarize A temple notarized basically means prove it's real duo stuff apply for a visa and the funny thing was. I wasn't in america during the time. So i actually hired someone to do. All these things form someone can take your documents or take the copies of documents. Go to offices get from stand and do it for you. Which is great. It's it's a little expensive. I think a few hundred dollars but it's just say is better than flying to america doing it myself. It would cost more money so i think we started doing that in april or yeah april may maybe and then everything was done by june and then july is when they were really liked telling you okay this wing onto the street. I do like bring this bring that do this. And then august is okay. Yeah no absolutely i. I was in communication with you guys. you know during that time i actually met them in prague for the first time and they were kind enough to hang out with myself and my girlfriend and at the time as well and we all went to a beer spa. And that's on the youtube channel if you wanna Experience of the beer spa actually just a side note. I did get a. I got a message from that video like yesterday about somebody willing to use the footage so we talked about that. We talked to the full the background check. And it's unlike the you guys were very positive. Along the way. I know though the one thing was getting the teflon notarized but you overcame obstacles role and we don't have to talk about your personal pay because that's obviously private but What's the expectation somebody Somebody knew getting in there I feel like you have experience. You could have negotiated at more. But what are the. What are the perks. The the the payment housing insurance the any any severance or anything like that. Yeah i have absolutely no problem talking about the pay. I feel like if people really want to know it. I know prompt Telling about it

"Like what are your options. There for public schools and private schools internet bought. There's tons of like summer camps training centers things that are just all year round. So i'm in like we chat groups that That will post jobs all the time part time. Job this city for three months part time mississippi. So if you can really start wherever you want but if you want like a really consistent public school job or a private school that's september to july just like america basically. It's the same type of school year okay. So let's breakdown How many hours do you work. Or how many hours are you committed to work at your public school. Like what is your day. Look like it really depends on your school and where you are in china. So i worked at n. Your company. I worked at a school that or for a company that the maximum amount of classes i can have per week is eighteen. So that's pretty low. And i did have the maximum classes. I had eighteen classes most of the other had between ten and twelve. That's maybe two classes a day. On average i am may be three or four A day on average which is still pretty good. Very good to be honest so you really not working too much in china. The thing is some schools require like these office hours which basically means you have to sit in the office the entire day. Like even when you don't have class so if you're if you're schools day from eight to five but you only have class a two in three you have to be there from eight to five and just do whatever and trust me they they. They say like companies. Say oh just do your lessons lessons doing lesson plans. You can knock out all your lesson plans in a few weeks or if you really want to. In a few days it's not easy Planning lessons is really really not that difficult. I maybe i could take a little while once you get the hang of it. It's easy so the best thing to do is try and find a school or a

"Of what i was doing. Part time work three days a week at a training center. So i technically was working Illegally out of training center at any moment. i could have also been deported. So yeah the chances of it happening are pretty low and if it does happen. I don't think it's anything serious. You will you'll get. It's not that bad getting in prison for five years. Yeah well yeah hopefully. Hopefully that that would not be the case Yeah you know. I've heard a symbol though. Similar things i i've done some research because Just let the audience know that. I fell in love with korea and and unfortunately matt did not are maybe with just the work there and i did some research and yeah a lot of people do teach part time outside of their work visa. And you know they're not necessarily you know the one i can say is that like is. It is a gray area You know there's other excuses basically like there's other there's there's other crimes being committed teaching teaching somebody a foreign language are typically consider enriching the culture. So you know you're you know if anything you're they're spending your money and you know it's not like a native knesset take your position because your you know your job is is is the role of a native english speaker. So you're not gonna find a you're not gonna find that many in a foreign country with the tefal d you recommend either online or in class does it matter online Hundred percent online. I feel like the train. Like i have done in class training with table stuff. I've done training for teaching honestly. Nothing prepares you to teach until you're physically in the classroom and you're teaching and you just you just learn what works what does title on. No-one taught me i'm teaching. I had all that little training but they just gave me about textbooks. Like okay your teacher. I have no idea how to teach. I didn't go to school for teaching a barely training teaching. So i just do it online. It's easier. I mean you can't do it in person because it gives you the chance to fly somewhere new and maybe meet. Some new people are gonna work from the same place. i think. That's the benefit of that. But if you're at home when you're you're not going anywhere just yet online is fine. It's not gonna help make any better or worse for you okay. Well it's good advice. I just completed an online one. A premier tefal extra affiliate link on the bottom. I'm i'm kidding. I don't even know if there is one so but Yeah it's it's pretty. I don't know i feel like the online ones They're okay. I mean they give you the information you need. It comes down to your desire to actually want to go to the material in any kind of detail or linked. What how long did it take from the decision to getting to landing the position so if somebody is listening now how many how many. How many months do they need to prepare a to. You know. I want to teach in china. Uh july july fifth i think and when can i expect to start if you want to start the whole process like finding a company that will help you find a job. I start in december. That was too early. I would say maybe mark john start. I mean honestly you can start pretty late It's it was the end of june so it really is possible to find it. I mean maybe it helps. That emerged here. But i'd say march or april the school semester in china all over the whole country starts the first week of september and ends either the last week in june or the middle of july depending on where you are china. Expecting to work like from september to draw. Okay so if so. If you're here now in june july then you really going to have to wait for the next school year or is their way of starting at the end of this year.

"I'm one hundred percent happy with that decision because working at a public school is so much better than a trade center. I have a friend here. In china who worked trade center and he ended up quitting halfway through which happens. Okay yeah i think they call it I heard in korea. They call it the midnight. Run where you You pack up an escape in the middle of the night. And i you know i don't obviously i don't have experience teaching in a classroom and had barely have any teaching experience on online however For any of you listeners. Out there i. i would say that. His story about the hogwash. And career is common. However i i am in contact with a few people. That work at hogwash. As well that really enjoy it And just to clarify the difference like what mad at said is just that hogwash. Private entities so they don't. They're not beholden to any kind of Any specific standard other than their own and You know they're they're they're a for profit Basically for profit business and Versus working for the public school system. Where it's a it. Sounds like it's a little bit more. It's managed better in your experience when you're you're teaching here at the the chinese school yes yes He's shaking his head. So i think it's a correct the question i have to is Do because you had all the experience online if somebody wanted to say somebody listen to this right now instead they said oh you know i wanna teach in china but i don't want to have to teach online for three years Do they have to do that or can they just Finish you know. One are the requirements in experience matter. So if you are a native. English speaker You need a bachelors degree. And you need a temple or tesla one of those certifications. So if you don't have a bachelor's degree you can't legally work in china if you don't have a test old That's okay but you need experience a or if you have a you don't need experience. You can come to china and work on tourist visa. Many people do it especially from non native countries. Like russia and serbia. There's a lot of people from coming here on tourist visas. They work in usually training centers. And you can make pretty good money working. 'cause you're not paying taxes or anything and they pay directly through we chat. Which is how everything is done here in china but you also have to leave the country. Every two months. Which i heard is not that bad you can just go to hong kong. Come right back especially if you're in shenzhen and then But you also have the chance of getting caught at a police. You can do that. You can work commended as china. I mean it's places where you should be careful okay. So he did cut out a little bit. I'll I'm sorry but he yeah. Basically you said that You can't you you you can or people have taught in with a tourist visa. But it's definitely not the legal way of doing it and but you're saying you don't think that it is that negatively frowned upon is that. Is that kind of what i'm hearing from. You like if you get caught though. Bobby just deport you and then you probably have to get a new passport to try to get back in the country or do you. Think your blacklisted from china. It probably blacklisted. For at least a few years. I don't know. I never really looked into my. My visa was with a with a company which hired me to think

"He's drinking wine now so talk about Because i know there are some challenges air so When did you make the decision. This is the time we need. Or i need to teach in class now. And how did you break down where to do it at actually remember i was in. I was with my ex girlfriend who we both did the podcasts words with mazda. Get there and we were in italy so we were in italy. In december of two thousands have been yes two thousand seventeen so i realized at that point like i was just bored teaching online like it was the same thing every day. I was in the same spot. I mean it's great because you can live in other countries and move around but the job itself was it was just. I don't know. I felt like i needed some interaction with mean i'm not. I'm not the most sociable person in the world. Like i don't like marvin goes out of us. People like crazy. I give you so much for that but for me. It's a little more difficult to do that. So i just felt like very isolated teaching online like the only kind of communication on on the internet so i said that i want to go in teaching person again like i. I was teaching. These kids in china so i said oh why not china. I've heard taped It's a good way of life there. And i heard it's just like the school systems a lot better than a lot of other countries so i thought why not so i. I looked at you knocking on my door right now and moved into this apartment. That's that's a popular guy and want to get that. He was in italy and it was getting a little repetitive. That's what he was talking about. I might actually having repeat that section there so we can So it can be very sorry about goes. I think we're in good shape. Did you not hear me. There was only one part where you know you said it was repetitive online. You there was a section. Can you just repeat. You said something about There was a lot of interaction. I really was talking to five to ten year. Old chinese kids and my ex girlfriend i. I didn't really go out too much. I did have friends when i was living in. Prague offside would see them. Sometimes but for the most part i was really interacting with people and i was just getting bored of the same thing talking teaching the same lessons talking to the same kids and i just want us to be in person. I wanted to have like other coworkers around me. I want to interact with the actual students. I just wanted to go to a work environment again. And i will point i did. I said to myself i would never do that. Online is so wonderful. That i'm able to teach and do whatever i want and not have to deal with all that other stuff but i i missed it so i had to go i want to go back to it and china seem like a good place. I heard a lot of good things about shenzhen china. It's in southern china It's there's no winter is just always off there so i i don't like cold weather so that was a city i chose and it's pretty easy to get a job and you just find the company Job if you have some experience if if a native english speaker like come from a country where they speak english as their main language than you should have no problem so I applied for a job in december. And i think the whole process kind of started a few months later and then i ended up moving to shenzhen china in august of two thousand eighteen. Okay so Thanks for sharing that the A couple of things When there so it took you decided in december you found it sound like a recruiter. Or did you go directly to a A school was a recruiter or school or somewhere in between that. Yeah it was. It was recruiter pretty hard to get a job outer recruiter here online. Like from videos and stuff like oh the you make much more money if you go directly to. The school is absolutely true but it doesn't much harder to work in a country the these companies these recruiters. They're the ones that help you really legally work in a country. There's a chance of you getting in trouble and this is. There's also a chance of you not finding a legal job. I i remember watching a video from. where's poppy. She lived in shenzhen china and she was the one saying to go there without help from anyone in months The school because they weren't paying admitted have enough money so definitely go recruiter. If it's your first time. And then i guess if you're comfortable there and you know the system you know how things work then try to find a school on your own but if it's your first year one hundred percent a recruiter you're gonna make less money but everything else is just easier okay. So we'll we'll get into detail more with your previous experiences in thailand korea. We'll do that later. But i guess when you decided to do this and you had. We all know you've documented in your podcast that you had a negative experience in both thailand. Some negative experiences in thailand and korea. What what were you going to do or did you do anything to prepare or to prevent that from happening again when you when you decide to come to china or were you just going to roll the dice Like you had done in the past. Yeah i definitely did do a little more research. for example. The reason i got screwed over in korea was because i was working at a hotline which is kind of like a training center which is like an after school program and i knew in china. They have that but they also have public schools and i knew immediately. I'm not going to a training center. I don't care if i make more money. I don't care about less hours. I'm working at a public school. Because you don't have to deal with like a private off with the government deal with your company. You don't deal with up. Some woman who really probably has nothing to do teaching english as your boss so i wanted to make sure to go to school and that's what i did in. I'm one hundred

"So that's a little bit about me. All right with show is over. I think we've gotten through everything i'm getting. I'm just joking guys so just before we start off i wanna make it clear that this as you probably noticed because This'll be a podcast That he were not in the same room. So i just to make that clear to our listeners. He is at. He is in china. And i'm not in china. I'm in a city called kuala poor which is in malaysia And i'm stuck here. Which all talk about at a later time Because i ran out of pages in my passport. And didn't i was an idiot and didn't realize that i had only one page left and luckily Malaysia will let you in with one page. And i went to the us embassy and a league is on a cliffhanger. On how i how. And when do i get my passport and when i leave so hopefully the next i i can't guarantee the next podcast won't still won't be me here and in quantum poor but hopefully not cross your fingers guys nothing against kuala poor though for my kuala import listeners out there all to view so So matt thank you for the introduction and you know that was a condensed version. We're we're action a strip away. Some of those those Those statements he said and and There was a lot there to kind of unpack for the most part Y goal in this interview. And just let you guys. I actually didn't prepare matt for this interview We i just hit record once. We started the call. So i could be asking about anything from teaching to midget stripping. He has no idea what i'm going to ask him. And you know that's what we like to keep it. Keep it raw here. it's but the truth is You know. I wanted to. I want to ask him about his experience in and comparing working online and working in a classroom setting. I i think that is the value proposition for this podcast So i apologize for all you midget stripper listeners. Out there That we're not talking about that today. But really the benefits He's i think he you've done more online than in classroom or are you most fifty fifty at this point. Almost fifty fifty by a little more on i guess a little more online so yeah i want to kind of Here you know your experiences This this is your it. Seems like this is your first two full. It was this your first full year of teaching straight through or had you done that in thailand before actually this. Yeah this is my first full year The other two times eitan person other should happen. Never made it so. This was my first actual full year full year. And since this is this is a more fresher experience We'll just dive into how you got this position so About a year ago. I remember you guys announced that you were leaving prague and And by the way guys. If you want to know more about matt's backstory his his Previous podcast was words with wows so You if if there's any interest on hearing every detail of his experiences that's a place to go He did he evaded. Clever thing where they would drink wine throughout the broadcast so they get a little bit. Lucy loosey-goosey at the end and he's again.

We'll talk a little bit about his experience online. It's really if you want knowledge about teaching abroad in china or an abroad in general because he's taught in thailand in south korea as well. I want to start with. I apologize ahead of time. We actually did this over Zoom and the connection did drop a couple of times. I have edited the episode. So you won't really hear a lot of those drops but you might hear cuts. Where like he was answering something in. It cuts us something else however i promise you that In the body of the podcast anything that was dropped. Do come back to not immediately but it is brought back. I knew when we lost that part of the episode during the recording. So i do bring it up with him so with no further ado. Here's my friend.

I need to build to build my guests. You know it's been a i. I'm a little rusty. I must admit. I want to apologize to all my listeners for for being away for a while. I thought i'd hit it hard. When i got back to bali and then i didn't and now i'm in kale and matt's like you better do it now or never going to do it. I i felt like i felt like an ultimatum.

Because i don't do that anymore but yet so i mean keep going. So yeah i. I've been to over about thirty countries. I think now Since two thousand fourteen. I started off in thailand and now i'm in china i fund my travels by teaching english. I mean align. A lot of people do do that. And i don't think there's anything wrong with that. Sometimes it has kind of a bad name to it because people you know people people tend to just go to. She had drunk sleep around and go home but actually take this seriously. I've been teaching english Since thailand i did it in thailand. I did it in korea taught online for almost three years. Now i've been. I've been teaching in china for about a year and i'm going to do it again for another year. I really like it so yeah. Just been traveling. Basically i stay in countries long. Long-term i don't i don't really do short-term traveling it's sometimes i do wear like i'll stay in a place for year and then for a few months i'll just bounce around his quickest possible this as many places as possible but overall i'd stay in one place for a long time in really lived at an apartment go. The gym could buy meals not really a typical type of or more just living in different countries. So yeah i really do enjoy that.
