Speaking of China: Chinese parent pressures

a440b470-a4b9-4b59-88a2-5c9fe91137f3 (1)

Chinese parents can be… demanding. Especially if you're pushing 30 and you're not married yet - then you can expect a lot of not-so-subtle questions about whether you have someone waiting in the wings, and maybe a few million suggestions for potential candidates. Whether you're Chinese or not, we want to know what you think about Chinese parents' attitude to their kids' marriage. Is there too much pressure?

Tell us a story or just give us your opinion on the subject for a chance to win a T-shirt and a pair of Global Times chopsticks in our latest "Speaking of China ..." reader contest![......]

Speaking of China: Only in China would you hear…

6d090444-4fe8-4c8d-8450-8431e0cd6d8f

China is nothing short of a sensory overlord. In addition to the exotic tastes, sights and ahem… bouquet of smells, there’s a spectrum of sounds that resonate the true China experience.

Submit a question, comment or screamed exclamation you’ve heard that encapsulates your time in China for a chance to win a T-shirt and a pair of Global Times chopsticks in our latest "Speaking of China ..." reader contest![......]
