NIO ES8 Aluminium: Li Bin’s Genius Aluminum Strategy (no other country can copy NIO!)

Summary: There are only 3 countries in the world that can make more than 10 million all-aluminum Electric Vehicles per year.  NIO happens to be in one of them that can make 100 million per year, and Li Bin has taken full advantage of this fact. No other country can copy NIO at a large scale since there is simply not enough aluminum (unless heavy imports are done which will further drive up the price of aluminum).

Two of the above 3 countries have to use up their entire aluminum production to achieve 10 million all-aluminum cars, which is not practical since there are other important uses for aluminum besides cars.

NIO ES8 Aluminium

NIO’s CEO Li Bin has made the genius decision for the NIO ES8 to be completely aluminum, or to be precise, the ES8 uses 96.4% aluminum, the highest percentage of aluminum used in an all-aluminum body in mass production worldwide.

The clear benefit of aluminum over steel is that it is lighter. The NIO ES8 uses an all-aluminum frame, which is about 40% lighter than traditional steel bodies (density of steel 7.8 g/cm3> aluminum 2.7 g/cm3).

With a lighter body, an all-aluminum car would be able to travel further than a steel car per unit of battery power. It is very clear that an all-aluminum car is superior to a steel car.

The NIO ES8’s body-in-white weight is 13.6% of the total vehicle weight, which is 2460 kg. That means, the weight of aluminum in one NIO ES8 car is  approximately 13.6%x2460 = 335 kg.

The genius of Li Bin’s strategy is that no country can copy this all-aluminum strategy on a large scale, as shown in the calculations below. To further add to this, Li Bin must have thought and planned for this very early, well before the factory of ES8 was built.

How many All-Aluminum Cars can each Country make per year

The yearly aluminum production of each country is taken from Wikipedia: List of countries by primary aluminium production.

China produces 36,000,000,000 kg of aluminum in a year. Since one NIO ES8 contains 335 kg of aluminum, that means that:

China can make 36,000,000,000/335 = 107 million aluminum cars per year

Similar calculation for India, India produces 3,700,000,000 kg of aluminum in a year. Since one NIO ES8 contains 335 kg of aluminum, that means that:

India can make 3,700,000,000/335 = 11 million aluminum cars per year

We do the other calculations in the table below. Note that India and Russia have to use up 100% of their aluminum in order to exceed the 10 million aluminum cars target per year. Other countries cannot make more than 10 million all-aluminum cars even if they use up all their aluminum production.

Rank Country/Region Aluminium Production (thousands of metric tons) No. of Aluminum Cars per Year (millions)
1 China 36,000 107
2  India 3,700 11
3  Russia 3,600 11
4  Canada 2,900 9
5  United Arab Emirates 2,700 8
6  Australia 1,600 5
7  Bahrain 1,400 4
8  Norway 1,300 4
9  United States 1,100 3
10  Saudi Arabia 932 3
Number of all-aluminum cars each country can make at the maximum (per year).

NIO Car Battery Swap Videos

Interesting real life video of NIO car battery swap. Interestingly, the NIO car BaaS battery swap center in Shanghai is right next to its competitor Tesla’s Supercharger! The battery swap section is right at 8:55.

The above YouTube channel is a reliable and unbiased one, not set up specifically to promote NIO. It has been around for years, showing how the channel’s owners who are just in their 40s “retire” in Malaysia. They are currently back in Shanghai, not sure if it is permanent or just temporary to avoid the COVID situation in Malaysia.

By the way, in the video, the people are discussing how a house in Shanghai costing 6 million RMB (or almost 1 million USD) is “cheap”! This shows how rich the people in Tier 1 cities in China are, buying an electric car is no big deal for them, as long as the quality is good.

The video above is another authentic video from a real life NIO owner, performing battery swap in another Tier 1 city in China, Shenzhen. The entire battery swap process takes around 4.5 minutes, provided there is no long queue. This is just as fast or even faster than refilling petrol.

Battery swap can be considered as a moat of the company NIO. It is not easy for other car companies to suddenly switch to battery swapping since that would involve significantly redesigning their car or factory.

NIO cars can also charge the battery the conventional way, in addition to battery swapping. Another advantage of battery swapping is that older NIO car models can easily “upgrade” to a newer battery, for example from 70 kWh to 100 kWh.

Check out NIO’s CEO Li Bin launching the new 100 kWh battery in the video below, just recently in November 2020. The 100 kWh battery is on par with Tesla’s Model S.

Rhodeus bitterling fish 鳑鲏鱼

I have never seen this fish before in Singapore. In China, it seems common. It is called “Pang Pi” fish, or Rhodeus /bitterling fish. Although it is not very colorful, it is quite unique due to its relationship to the clam.

As you can see from the video, it likes to hang around the clam/mussel, and it will even lay its eggs inside. Apparently, the clam also deposits its eggs on the “Pang Pi” fish.

Clams are hard to keep, and can be quite tricky for beginners. It is hard to tell if the clam has died or not. (Even an alive clam does not move much. You can see how it moves in the video.) Once the clam has died, it will start decomposing and producing toxins which may harm the entire tank. Also, it is quite common for clams to have parasites and worms in them.

In the northern darkness there is a fish and his name is K’un.

Just realized that there is some parallel between the Chinese Giant Fish Kun (鲲) and the Jewish Giant Fish Leviathan.

Similarly, Chinese Giant Bird Peng (鹏) = Jewish Giant Bird Ziz.

In the northern darkness there is a fish and his name is K’un. The K’un is so huge I don’t know how many thousand li he measures. He changes and becomes a bird whose name is P’eng. The back of the P’eng measures I don’t know how many thousand li across and, when he rises up and flies off, his wings are like clouds all over the sky. When the sea begins to move, this bird sets off for the southern darkness, which is the Lake of Heaven.


As Leviathan is the king of fishes, so the Ziz is appointed to rule over the birds. His name comes from the variety of tastes his flesh has; it tastes like this, zeh, and like that, zeh. The Ziz is as monstrous of size as Leviathan himself. His ankles rest on the earth, and his head reaches to the very sky.


Clockwise from left: Behemoth (on earth), Ziz (in sky), and Leviathan (under sea). From Wikipedia.

Hướng dẫn đầy đủ về VPN tại Trung Quốc

Cách truy cập Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, WhatsApp tại Trung Quốc

Điều nổi tiếng là một số trang web thiết yếu bị chặn ở Trung Quốc:

  • Toàn bộ bộ sản phẩm của Google. Điều này bao gồm Gmail, tìm kiếm Google, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Scholar, v.v.
  • Toàn bộ bộ sản phẩm của Facebook. Điều này cũng bao gồm WhatsApp vì nó thuộc sở hữu của Facebook.
  • Hầu hết các phương tiện truyền thông xã hội khác của Western Western, như Twitter.
  • Hầu hết các trang blog, bao gồm, Điều này bao gồm không chỉ các trang đăng nhập mà còn tất cả các trang web được tạo bởi,, v.v.
  • Hầu hết các trang web chia sẻ tệp, chẳng hạn như Dropbox.
  • Wikipedia

Như bạn có thể thấy, Great Firewall của Trung Quốc chặn nhiều dịch vụ thiết yếu sẽ gây bất tiện cho hầu hết mọi người, cho dù bạn là một doanh nhân, sinh viên hay chỉ là một khách du lịch bình thường. Nó đã trở nên tồi tệ hơn trong những năm gần đây (2019 trở đi) khi Tường lửa đã mạnh hơn rất nhiều và nhiều VPN không hoạt động tốt như chúng đã làm.

Trong hướng dẫn toàn diện này, chúng tôi sẽ đề cập đến nhiều tùy chọn (VPN và hơn thế nữa) sẽ giúp bạn vượt qua Bức tường lửa vĩ đại của Trung Quốc và kết nối với Google, YouTube, Facebook, et cetera. Chúng tôi bao gồm các dịch vụ miễn phí cũng như trả phí, cũng như các giải pháp không phải VPN.

*** Rất quan trọng: Tất cả các VPN là miễn phí hoặc trả phí phải được tải xuống và thiết lập trước khi bạn vào Trung Quốc. Khi bạn vào Trung Quốc, bạn không thể tải xuống hoặc thiết lập tài khoản trên VPN.

VPN miễn phí

Hầu hết các trang web không cho bạn biết về VPN miễn phí vì chúng không nhận được lợi ích (hoa hồng) từ việc này. Chúng tôi sẽ chỉ đề xuất các VPN miễn phí đáng tin cậy, đáng tin cậy ở đây. Xin lưu ý rằng có tồn tại một số VPN VPN miễn phí mờ ám có khả năng đánh cắp hoặc rò rỉ dữ liệu của bạn. Các VPN miễn phí dưới đây không yêu cầu bất kỳ dữ liệu thẻ tín dụng nào.

*** Quan trọng: Nếu bạn chỉ dựa vào VPN miễn phí, bạn nên tải xuống và thiết lập 2 hoặc 3 lựa chọn thay thế. Điều này là do VPN miễn phí thường kém ổn định hơn và dễ bị chặn hơn vì có ít vị trí máy chủ hơn.

Windscribe Đánh giá VPN miễn phí

Một VPN miễn phí rất tốt từ một công ty chuyên nghiệp thực sự. Bạn nhận được khoảng 10 GB băng thông dữ liệu miễn phí đặt lại mỗi tháng, có khả năng nhận được nhiều hơn bằng cách tweet hoặc giới thiệu với bạn bè của bạn.

Đăng ký 10 GB miễn phí với tiềm năng để nhận được nhiều hơn chỉ bằng cách Tweet trên Twitter.

Cá nhân tôi đã dùng thử phiên bản miễn phí của Windscribe ở các thành phố khác nhau ở Trung Quốc và nó hoạt động (hầu hết thời gian). Đừng mong đợi kết nối hoàn hảo mặc dù. Nếu bạn quyết định sử dụng Free Windscribe, hãy đăng ký tại đây tại trang web chính thức của Windscribe.

Xem lại miễn phí

TunnelBear cũng cung cấp gói miễn phí (500 MB hàng tháng) không yêu cầu bất kỳ thông tin thẻ tín dụng nào từ bạn. Dựa trên kinh nghiệm của tôi, Windscribe Free tốt hơn so với TunnelBear miễn phí (dựa trên cơ hội kết nối và số lượng vị trí máy chủ). Tuy nhiên, điều đó đang được nói, rất có thể xảy ra rằng tại bất kỳ thời điểm nào, TunnelBear có thể kết nối trong khi Windscribe không thể. Do đó, khuyến nghị là nhận cả Free Windscribe và TunnelBear.

Đánh giá miễn phí Lantern VPN

Lantern VPN là duy nhất theo nghĩa nó không phải là VPN, mà là một công cụ chia sẻ mạng ngang hàng trên mạng. Vì nó hoạt động khác với VPN, nên có thể nó không bị chặn trong khi các VPN khác. Lantern có tùy chọn Miễn phí (URL: cho phép bạn duyệt các trang web bị hạn chế khi ở Trung Quốc.

Nếu bạn quyết định nâng cấp lên phiên bản trả phí (Lantern Pro), bạn sẽ nhận được nhiều dữ liệu hơn và tốc độ nhanh hơn. Sử dụng mã YJVD2WT của tôi và nhận 3 tháng miễn phí khi bạn đăng ký!

Kết luận cho VPN miễn phí

Không thể nhấn mạnh rằng bạn cần nhiều hơn 1 sự lựa chọn nếu bạn đang đi tuyến đường VPN miễn phí. Chúng tôi khuyên bạn nên tải xuống và thiết lập tất cả 3 VPN miễn phí ở trên trước khi bước chân vào Trung Quốc.

VPN trả phí

VPN trả phí (trong tiếng Trung) đề cập đến những VPN yêu cầu phí đăng ký hàng tháng (hoặc hàng năm). Điều mà nhiều trang web không thể nói với bạn là ngay cả VPN trả phí cũng không hoạt động 100%. Thông thường, các VPN đang trong một cuộc chạy đua vũ trang với Great Firewall. Khi Tường lửa thực hiện cập nhật thuật toán để chặn VPN, VPN sẽ tham gia vào một cuộc tranh giành thời gian để bỏ chặn chính nó. Trong thời gian đó, VPN sẽ không thể truy cập công khai. Điều đó đang được nói, VPN trả phí có nhiều tùy chọn máy chủ hơn nên nhiều khả năng nó có thể kết nối thành công với một trong những máy chủ đó, so với VPN miễn phí thường chỉ có một vài vị trí máy chủ.

Đánh giá PureVPN

PureVPN là lựa chọn hàng đầu của chúng tôi cho VPN trả phí do khả năng chi trả và hồ sơ theo dõi của nó.

PureVPN có một bộ máy chủ đặc biệt được Tối ưu hóa cho Trung Quốc, cho phép người dùng bỏ qua Great Firewall của Trung Quốc một cách hiệu quả và tự động. Trong trường hợp Tường lửa bị chặn mạnh, chỉ cần liên hệ với bộ phận hỗ trợ PureVPN rất nhạy. Sau đó, họ sẽ hướng dẫn bạn thực hiện các bước thủ công để kết nối với máy chủ, trong khi họ sửa ứng dụng chính của họ. (Tôi đã thử điều này trước đây.)

Đăng ký PureVPN bằng liên kết PureVPN chính thức này.

Khuyến mãi: Sử dụng mã phiếu giảm giá: discount10 để được giảm thêm 10% khi đăng ký PureVPN.

Đánh giá NordVPN

NordVPN luôn được xếp hạng hàng đầu trong số tất cả các VPN trực tuyến. NordVPN có trụ sở tại Panama, nơi không có luật lưu giữ dữ liệu bắt buộc nên họ hoàn toàn không lưu trữ nhật ký.

NordVPN cũng có chức năng các máy chủ bị che khuất trong các ứng dụng khác.

Đăng ký NordVPN bằng liên kết NordVPN chính thức này.

Kết luận cho VPN trả phí

Nhiều trang web không cho bạn biết điều này, nhưng vào năm 2019, ngay cả VPN trả phí cũng không hoạt động 100% tại Trung Quốc. Ngoài ra, nó phụ thuộc vào thành phố, đôi khi nó hoạt động ở Bắc Kinh nhưng không phải Thượng Hải và ngược lại. Các VPN tốt như trên hoạt động liên tục để cập nhật thuật toán của họ để giảm thiểu thời gian chết. Bạn chắc chắn vẫn muốn bổ sung VPN trả phí của mình với 1 hoặc 2 VPN miễn phí để phục vụ như một bản sao lưu.

Thẻ SIM Hồng Kông-Ma Cao

Phương pháp hoàn hảo để vượt qua Bức tường lửa vĩ đại của Trung Quốc là sử dụng thẻ SIM Hồng Kông-Ma Cao. Điều này là do mặc dù Hồng Kông và Ma Cao là một phần của Trung Quốc, nhưng không có Tường lửa ở đó theo luật của One One, Two Systems. Tóm lại, bạn chắc chắn sẽ có thể truy cập Facebook, WhatsApp, Google bằng thẻ SIM này.

Đây là một tùy chọn tuyệt vời nếu bạn là người dùng internet nhẹ đến trung bình (thẻ SIM có giới hạn dữ liệu nhanh là 6 GB, sau đó bạn vẫn có dữ liệu nhưng tốc độ giảm xuống còn 128kb / giây).

Mẹo: Bạn nên mua thẻ SIM từ China Unicom vì đây là một trong những công ty viễn thông lớn nhất và đáng tin cậy nhất ở Trung Quốc.

トファイアウォールは、ビジネスマン、学生、または単なる観光客であるかどうかにかかわらず、ほとんどの人にとって不便な多くの重要なサービスをブロックしています。 ファイアウォールがより強力になり、多くのVPNが以前ほどうまく機能しないため、近年(2019年以降)悪化しています。

この包括的なガイドでは、中国のグレートファイアウォールをバイパスし、Google、YouTube、Facebookなどに接続するのに役立つさまざまなオプション(VPNなど)について説明します。 無料サービスと有料サービス、および非VPNソリューションが含まれます。

***非常に重要:無料または有料のすべてのVPNは、中国に入る前にダウンロードして設定する必要があります。 中国に入国すると、VPNでアカウントをダウンロードまたは設定できない場合があります。


ほとんどのWebサイトでは、無料VPNについては何のメリット(手数料)も得られないため、無料VPNについては説明していません。 ここでは、信頼できる信頼できる無料のVPNのみをお勧めします。 データを盗んだり漏洩したりする可能性のある日陰の「無料の」VPNが存在することに注意してください。 以下の無料VPNでは、クレジットカードデータは必要ありません。

***重要:無料のVPNのみに依存している場合は、2つまたは3つの選択肢をダウンロードして設定することをお勧めします。 これは、通常、無料のVPNは安定性が低く、サーバーの場所が少ないためにブロックされる傾向があるためです。

Windscribe Free VPNレビュー

実際の専門会社からの非常にまともな無料VPN。 毎月リセットされる約10 GBの無料のデータ帯域幅が得られ、友達にツイートしたり紹介したりすることでさらにデータを取得できる可能性があります。

Windscribe 10 GBは無料で、Twitterでツイートするだけでさらに多くの可能性があります。

私は個人的に中国のさまざまな都市でWindscribeの無料版を試してみましたが、それは(ほとんどの場合)動作します。 ただし、完全な接続を期待しないでください。 無料のWindscribeを使用する場合は、Windscribeの公式Webサイトでサインアップしてください


TunnelBearは、クレジットカード情報を必要としない無料プラン(毎月500 MB)も提供しています。 私の経験では、Windscribe FreeはTunnelBear freeよりも優れています(接続の可能性とサーバーの場所の数に基づきます)。 ただし、そうは言っても、Windscribeが接続できないのに、TunnelBearはいつでも接続できることが非常によく起こります。 したがって、Free WindscribeとTunnelBearの両方を入手することをお勧めします。


Lantern VPNは、VPNではなく、「ピアネットワーク共有」ツールという意味でユニークです。 VPNとは動作が異なるため、他のVPNがブロックされている間はブロックされない場合があります。 Lanternには無料オプション(URL:があり、中国にいる間に制限付きウェブサイトを閲覧できます。

有料版(Lantern Pro)にアップグレードすることにした場合、より多くのデータとより高速な速度が得られます。 私のコードYJVD2WTを使用して、サインアップすると3か月間無料で利用できます!


Free VPNルートを利用する場合は、複数の選択肢が必要であることを強調することはできません。 中国に足を踏み入れる前に、上記の3つの無料VPNをすべてダウンロードしてセットアップすることを強くお勧めします。


有料VPN(中国語の翻訳)は、月間(または年単位)のサブスクリプション料金が必要なVPNを指します。多くのサイトがあなたに言っていないのは、有料VPNでさえ100%動作しないということです。通常、VPNはGreat Firewallとの軍拡競争にあります。ファイアウォールがVPNをブロックするためにアルゴリズムの更新を行うと、VPNはそれ自体のブロックを解除するためのタイムスクランブルを行います。その間、VPNは公開されません。そうは言っても、有料のVPNにはより多くのサーバーオプションがあるため、通常はサーバーの数が少ない無料のVPNと比較して、それらのサーバーの1つに正常に接続できる可能性が高くなります。



PureVPNには、特別な「中国向けに最適化された」サーバーセットがあり、ユーザーは中国のグレートファイアウォールを効果的かつ自動的にバイパスできます。ファイアウォールによる激しいブロッキングが発生した場合は、PureVPNサポートにお問い合わせください。次に、メインアプリを修正しながら、サーバーに接続するためのアドホックな手動手順を指示します。 (私は以前これを試しました。)




NordVPNは、すべてのオンラインVPNの中で常にトップにランクされています。 NordVPNはパナマに本拠を置いていますが、パナマには必須のデータ保持法がないため、ログは絶対に保存されません。




多くのサイトはこれを教えてくれませんが、2019年には中国では有料VPNでさえ100%動作しません。 また、都市にもよりますが、時には北京では機能しますが上海では機能せず、その逆もあります。 上記のような優れたVPNは、ダウンタイムを最小限に抑えるためにアルゴリズムを常に更新しています。 バックアップとして機能する無料のVPNを1つまたは2つ追加して、有料VPNを確実に補完する必要があります。


中国のグレートファイアウォールをバイパスする簡単な方法は、香港とマカオのSIMカードを使用することです。 これは、香港とマカオが中国の一部であるにもかかわらず、「1つの国、2つのシステム」法の下にファイアウォールが存在しないためです。 要約すると、このSIMカードを使用して、Facebook、WhatsApp、Googleに確実にアクセスできます。

軽度から中程度のインターネットユーザーの場合、これは優れたオプションです(SIMカードには6 GBの高速データ制限があり、その後はデータはありますが、速度は128kbpsに低下します)。

ヒント:SIMカードはChina Unicomから購入する必要があります。これは、中国で最大かつ最も信頼性の高い通信会社の1つです。

중국 VPN에 대한 완벽한 가이드

중국의 Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, WhatsApp에 액세스하는 방법

중국에서는 몇 가지 필수 웹 사이트가 차단되어 있습니다.

  • 전체 Google 제품군 여기에는 Gmail, Google 검색, YouTube, Google 드라이브, Google 학술 검색 등이 포함됩니다.
  • 전체 Facebook 제품군. Facebook이 소유하고 있기 때문에 WhatsApp도 포함됩니다.
    트위터와 같은 대부분의 다른“서부”소셜 미디어.
  •, Blogger.com을 포함한 대부분의 블로그 사이트. 여기에는 로그인 페이지뿐만 아니라, 등으로 만든 모든 사이트도 포함됩니다.
  • Dropbox와 같은 대부분의 파일 공유 사이트
  • 위키 백과

보시다시피, Great Firewall of China는 사업가, 학생 또는 단순한 관광객이든 대부분의 사람들에게 불편을 줄 수있는 많은 필수 서비스를 차단합니다. 방화벽이 훨씬 강력 해지고 많은 VPN이 제대로 작동하지 않아 최근 몇 년간 (2019 년 이후) 악화되었습니다.

이 포괄적 인 가이드에서는 중국의 방화벽을 우회하고 Google, YouTube, Facebook 등에 연결하는 데 도움이되는 다양한 옵션 (VPN 등)을 다룹니다. 무료 및 유료 서비스는 물론 비 VPN 솔루션도 포함됩니다.

*** 매우 중요 : 중국에 입국하기 전에 무료 또는 유료 VPN을 모두 다운로드하여 설정해야합니다. 중국에 입국하면 VPN에서 계정을 다운로드하거나 설정하지 못할 수 있습니다.

무료 VPN

대부분의 웹 사이트는 무료 VPN에 대해 알려주지 않으므로 무료 VPN에 대해 알려주지 않습니다. 여기서는 신뢰할 수 있고 안정적인 무료 VPN 만 권장합니다. 데이터를 훔치거나 유출 할 가능성이있는 그늘진“무료”VPN이 있습니다. 아래의 무료 VPN에는 신용 카드 데이터가 필요하지 않습니다.

*** 중요 : 무료 VPN에만 의존하는 경우 2 개 또는 3 개의 대안을 다운로드하고 설정하는 것이 좋습니다. 서버 위치가 적을수록 무료 VPN은 일반적으로 안정성이 떨어지고 차단되기 쉽습니다.

Windscribe 무료 VPN 검토

실제 전문 회사에서 제공하는 매우 괜찮은 무료 VPN입니다. 매달 재설정되는 약 10GB의 무료 데이터 대역폭이 제공되며 친구를 트윗하거나 추천하여 더 많은 것을 얻을 수 있습니다.

Twitter에서 트위터를 통해 더 많은 것을 얻을 수있는 10GB의 무료 Windscribe.

나는 중국의 다른 도시에서 개인적으로 무료 버전의 Windscribe를 사용해 보았으며 (대부분) 작동합니다. 완벽한 연결을 기대하지 마십시오. Free Windscribe를 사용하기로 결정한 경우 공식 Windscribe 웹 사이트에서 가입하십시오.

TunnelBear 무료 검토

TunnelBear는 또한 신용 카드 정보가 필요없는 무료 요금제 (매월 500MB)를 제공합니다. 내 경험에 따르면 Windscribe Free는 TunnelBear free (연결 기회 및 서버 위치 수 기준)보다 낫습니다. 그러나 Windscribe가 할 수없는 동안 언제라도 TunnelBear를 연결할 수 있다는 것은 매우 잘 알려진 사실입니다. 따라서 Free Windscribe와 TunnelBear를 모두 사용하는 것이 좋습니다.

랜턴 VPN 무료 검토

랜턴 VPN은 VPN이 아니라 “피어 네트워크 공유”도구라는 점에서 독특합니다. VPN과 다르게 작동하기 때문에 다른 VPN이 차단 된 동안에는 차단되지 않을 수 있습니다. Lantern에는 중국에있는 동안 제한된 웹 사이트를 탐색 할 수있는 무료 옵션 (URL :이 있습니다.

유료 버전 (Lantern Pro)으로 업그레이드하기로 결정하면 더 많은 데이터와 더 빠른 속도를 얻을 수 있습니다. 내 코드 YJVD2WT를 사용하고 가입하면 3 개월 무료로 이용할 수 있습니다!

무료 VPN에 대한 결론

무료 VPN 경로를 사용하는 경우 하나 이상의 선택이 필요하다는 것은 아무리 강조해도 지나치지 않습니다. 중국에 들어가기 전에 위의 3 가지 무료 VPN을 모두 다운로드하여 설정하는 것이 좋습니다.

유료 VPN

유료 VPN (중국어)은 월간 (또는 연간) 가입비가 필요한 VPN을 나타냅니다. 많은 사이트에서 사용자에게 알리지 않는 것은 유료 VPN도 100 % 작동하지 않는다는 것입니다. 일반적으로 VPN은 Great Firewall과 경쟁이 치열합니다. 방화벽이 VPN을 차단하기 위해 알고리즘을 업데이트하면 VPN은 자체적으로 차단을 해제하기 위해 시간이 걸리게됩니다. 이 기간 동안 대중은 VPN에 액세스 할 수 없습니다. 즉, 유료 VPN에는 더 많은 서버 옵션이 있으므로 일반적으로 몇 개의 서버 위치 만있는 무료 VPN에 비해 해당 서버 중 하나에 성공적으로 연결할 수 있습니다.

PureVPN 검토

PureVPN은 합리적인 가격과 실적으로 인해 유료 VPN을위한 최고의 선택입니다.

PureVPN에는 특별한 “중국에 최적화 된”서버 세트가 있으며,이를 통해 사용자는 중국의 방화벽을 효과적으로 자동으로 우회 할 수 있습니다. 방화벽에 의한 강력한 차단의 경우, 매우 반응이 빠른 PureVPN 지원에 문의하십시오. 그런 다음 메인 앱을 수정하는 동안 서버에 연결하기 위해 수동 단계를 임시로 안내합니다. (나는 전에 이것을 시도했다.)

프로모션 : 쿠폰 코드 : discount10을 사용하여 PureVPN 구독시 추가 10 % 할인을 받으십시오.

NordVPN 검토

NordVPN은 온라인에서 모든 VPN 중에서 지속적으로 최고 순위를 차지합니다. NordVPN은 필수 데이터 보존법이 없으므로 파나마를 기반으로하므로 로그를 절대 저장하지 않습니다.

NordVPN에는 방화벽에 의해 탐지되는 것을 피하기 위해 사용자의 트래픽을 위장하는 “”난독 화 된 서버 “기능도 있습니다.

이 공식 NordVPN 링크를 사용하여 NordVPN에 가입하십시오.

유료 VPN에 대한 결론

많은 사이트에서이를 알려주지 않지만 2019 년에는 유료 VPN도 중국에서 100 % 작동하지 않습니다. 또한 도시에 따라 다르며 때로는 베이징에서 작동하지만 상하이에서는 작동하지 않으며 그 반대도 마찬가지입니다. 위와 같은 우수한 VPN은 다운 타임을 최소화하기 위해 알고리즘을 지속적으로 업데이트합니다. 여전히 유료 VPN을 1 개 또는 2 개의 무료 VPN으로 보완하여 백업으로 사용할 수 있습니다.

홍콩 마카오 SIM 카드

중국의 방화벽을 우회하는 가장 확실한 방법은 홍콩-마카오 SIM 카드를 사용하는 것입니다. 홍콩과 마카오는 중국의 일부이지만“일 국가, 두 시스템”법에 따라 방화벽이 없기 때문입니다. 요약하면이 SIM 카드를 사용하여 Facebook, WhatsApp, Google에 확실히 액세스 할 수 있습니다.

이 방법은 인터넷 사용자가 보통이거나 중간 정도 인 사용자 (SIM 카드의 데이터 제한이 6GB로 빠른 후에도 데이터는 있지만 속도는 128kbps로 감소) 인 경우 탁월한 옵션입니다.

팁 : China Unicom은 중국에서 가장 크고 가장 안정적인 통신 회사 중 하나이므로 SIM 카드를 구입해야합니다.

Guía completa de VPN en China

Cómo acceder a Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, WhatsApp en China

Es bien sabido que varios sitios web esenciales están bloqueados en China:

  • El conjunto completo de productos de Google. Esto incluye Gmail, búsqueda de Google, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Scholar, etc.
  • Todo el conjunto de productos de Facebook. Esto también incluye WhatsApp, ya que es propiedad de Facebook.
  • La mayoría de las otras redes sociales “occidentales”, como Twitter.
  • La mayoría de los sitios de blogs, incluidos, Esto incluye no solo las páginas de inicio de sesión, sino también todos los sitios creados por,, etc.
  • La mayoría de los sitios para compartir archivos, como Dropbox.
  • Wikipedia

Como puede ver, el Gran Cortafuegos de China bloquea muchos servicios esenciales que molestarán a la mayoría de las personas, ya sea usted un hombre de negocios, un estudiante o simplemente un turista casual. Ha empeorado en los últimos años (2019 en adelante) ya que el Firewall se ha vuelto mucho más fuerte y muchas VPN no funcionan tan bien como lo hicieron.

En esta guía completa, cubriremos una variedad de opciones (VPN y más) que lo ayudarán a evitar el Gran Cortafuegos de China y conectarse a Google, YouTube, Facebook, etc. Incluimos servicios gratuitos y de pago, así como soluciones que no son de VPN.

*** Muy importante: todas las VPN, ya sean gratuitas o de pago, deben descargarse y configurarse antes de ingresar a China. Una vez que ingrese a China, es posible que no pueda descargar o configurar una cuenta en la VPN.

VPN gratis

La mayoría de los sitios web no le informan sobre las VPN gratuitas, ya que no obtienen ningún beneficio (comisión) al hacerlo. Aquí solo recomendaremos VPN gratuitas confiables y confiables. Tenga en cuenta que existen algunas VPN “gratuitas” con sombra que tienen el potencial de robar o filtrar sus datos. Las siguientes VPN gratuitas no requieren ningún dato de tarjeta de crédito.

*** Importante: si solo confía en VPN gratuitas, se recomienda descargar y configurar 2 o 3 alternativas. Esto se debe a que las VPN gratuitas suelen ser menos estables y más propensas a bloquearse, ya que hay menos ubicaciones de servidor.

Revisión de VPN gratuita de Windscribe

Una VPN gratuita muy decente que es de una compañía profesional real. Obtiene alrededor de 10 GB de ancho de banda de datos gratis que se restablece cada mes, con el potencial de obtener más tuiteando o refiriéndose a sus amigos.

Windscribe 10 GB gratis con potencial para obtener más simplemente tuiteando en Twitter.

He probado personalmente la versión gratuita de Windscribe en diferentes ciudades de China, y funciona (la mayoría de las veces). Sin embargo, no esperes una conexión perfecta. Si decide utilizar Free Windscribe, regístrese aquí en el sitio web oficial de Windscribe.

Revisión gratuita de TunnelBear

TunnelBear también proporciona un plan gratuito (500 MB mensuales) que no requiere ninguna información de su tarjeta de crédito. Según mi experiencia, Windscribe Free es mejor que TunnelBear gratis (según la posibilidad de conexión y el número de ubicaciones del servidor). Sin embargo, dicho esto, es muy posible que en cualquier momento dado, TunnelBear se pueda conectar mientras que Windscribe no. Por lo tanto, la recomendación es obtener Free Windscribe y TunnelBear.

Revisión gratuita de Lantern VPN

Lantern VPN es única en el sentido de que no es una VPN, sino más bien una herramienta de “intercambio de redes entre pares”. Dado que funciona de manera diferente a una VPN, podría darse el caso de que no esté bloqueado mientras que otras VPN sí lo están. Lantern tiene una opción gratuita (URL: que le permite navegar por sitios web restringidos mientras está en China.

Si decide actualizar a la versión paga (Lantern Pro), obtendrá más datos y una velocidad más rápida. ¡Use mi código YJVD2WT y obtenga 3 meses gratis cuando se registre!

Conclusión para VPN gratis

No se puede enfatizar demasiado que necesita más de 1 opción si va a la ruta VPN gratuita. Se recomienda encarecidamente que descargue y configure todas las 3 VPN gratuitas anteriores antes de ingresar a China.

VPN pagas

Las VPN de pago (翻墙 软件 en chino) se refieren a aquellas que requieren una tarifa de suscripción mensual (o anual). Lo que muchos sitios no le dicen es que incluso las VPN de pago no funcionan al 100%. Por lo general, las VPN están en una carrera armamentista con el Gran Firewall. Una vez que el firewall realiza una actualización del algoritmo para bloquear la VPN, la VPN se comprometerá en una lucha de tiempo para desbloquearse. Durante ese tiempo, la VPN no será accesible al público. Dicho esto, las VPN de pago tienen más opciones de servidor, por lo que es más probable que pueda conectarse con éxito a uno de esos servidores, en comparación con las VPN gratuitas que generalmente solo tienen unas pocas ubicaciones de servidor.

Revisión de PureVPN

PureVPN es nuestra mejor opción para VPN de pago debido a su asequibilidad y su historial.

PureVPN tiene un conjunto especial de servidores “Optimizado para China”, que permiten a los usuarios evitar el Gran Firewall de China de manera efectiva y automática. En el caso de un bloqueo intenso por parte del Firewall, solo contacte al soporte de PureVPN que es muy receptivo. Luego lo guiarán a pasos manuales ad hoc para conectarse a un servidor, mientras arreglan su aplicación principal. (He intentado esto antes).

Revisión de NordVPN

NordVPN se clasifica constantemente como el mejor entre todas las VPN en línea. NordVPN tiene su sede en Panamá, que no tiene una ley de retención de datos obligatoria, por lo que no almacenan registros.

NordVPN también tiene la función de “servidores ofuscados” que disfraza el tráfico de un usuario para evitar que sea detectado por el cortafuegos.

Conclusión para las VPN pagas

Muchos sitios no te dicen esto, pero en 2019 incluso las VPN pagas no funcionan al 100% en China. También depende de la ciudad, a veces funciona en Beijing pero no en Shanghai y viceversa. Las buenas VPN como las anteriores funcionan constantemente para actualizar su algoritmo y minimizar el tiempo de inactividad. Definitivamente, querrás complementar tu VPN de pago con 1 o 2 VPN gratuitas para que sirvan como respaldo.

Tarjeta SIM Hong Kong-Macao

El método infalible de evitar el Gran Firewall de China es usar una tarjeta SIM de Hong Kong-Macao. Esto se debe a que aunque Hong Kong y Macao son parte de China, no existe un cortafuegos en virtud de la ley “Un país, dos sistemas”. En resumen, definitivamente podrá acceder a Facebook, WhatsApp, Google usando esta tarjeta SIM.

Esta es una excelente opción si es un usuario de Internet ligero a moderado (la tarjeta SIM tiene un límite de datos rápido de 6 GB, después de lo cual todavía tiene datos, pero la velocidad se reduce a 128 kbps).

Consejo: debe comprar la tarjeta SIM de China Unicom, ya que es una de las compañías de telecomunicaciones más grandes y confiables de China.

  • Google学术搜索等。
  • 整个Facebook套件产品。 这也包括WhatsApp,因为它归Facebook所有。

正如您所看到的,中国的防火墙阻止了许多基本服务,这些服务会给大多数人带来不便,无论您是商人,学生还是休闲旅游者。 近年来(2019年以后)它已经恶化,因为防火墙变得越来越强大,许多VPN不能像以前那样运行良好。

在本综合指南中,我们将介绍各种选项(VPN等),它们将帮助您绕过中国的防火墙,并连接到谷歌,YouTube,Facebook等。 我们包括免费和付费服务,以及非VPN解决方案。

***非常重要:在您进入中国之前,必须下载并设置所有免费或付费的VPN。 进入中国后,您可能无法在VPN上下载或设置帐户。


大多数网站都没有告诉你有关免费VPN的事情,因为他们没有从中获益(佣金)。 我们只会在此推荐值得信赖,可靠的免费VPN。 请注意,存在一些可能会窃取或泄露数据的阴影“免费”VPN。 以下免费VPN不需要任何信用卡数据。

***重要提示:如果您只依赖Free VPN,建议下载并设置2或3个备选方案。 这是因为Free VPN通常不太稳定,并且由于服务器位置较少而更容易被阻止。


一个非常体面的免费VPN,来自一个真正的专业公司。 您可以获得大约10 GB的免费数据带宽,每月可以重置,有可能通过推特或引用您的朋友获得更多。

Windscribe 10 GB免费,可以通过Twitter上的推特获得更多。

我亲自在中国的不同城市尝试过Windscribe的免费版本,它的工作原理(大部分时间都是如此)。 不要指望完美连接。 如果您决定使用免费Windscribe,请在Windscribe官方网站上注册


TunnelBear还提供免费计划(每月500 MB),不需要您提供任何信用卡信息。根据我的经验,Windscribe Free比TunnelBear更好(基于连接的机会和服务器位置的数量)。然而,话虽如此,很可能会发生在任何给定时间,TunnelBear可以连接,而Windscribe不能。因此,建议同时获得Free Windscribe和TunnelBear。


Lantern VPN在某种意义上是独一无二的,它不是VPN,而是“对等网络共享”工具。由于它与VPN的工作方式不同,因此可能会出现其他VPN无法阻止的情况。 Lantern有一个免费选项(URL:,允许您在中国浏览受限制的网站。

如果您决定升级到付费版本(Lantern Pro),您将获得更多数据和更快的速度。使用我的代码YJVD2WT,并在注册时免费获得3个月!




付费VPN(翻译软件,中文)是指那些需要每月(或每年)订阅费用的人。 许多网站没有告诉你的是,即使付费VPN也无法100%运行。 通常,VPN与Great Firewall进行军备竞赛。 一旦防火墙进行算法更新以阻止VPN,VPN将进行时间加扰以解锁自身。 在此期间,公众无法访问VPN。 话虽如此,付费VPN有更多的服务器选项,因此与通常只有少量服务器位置的免费VPN相比,它更有可能成功连接到其中一台服务器。



PureVPN拥有一套特殊的“中国优化”服务器,可以让用户有效,自动地绕过中国的防火墙。 如果防火墙严重阻塞,只需联系PureVPN支持,该支持非常敏感。 然后,他们将指导您进行特定的手动步骤以连接到服务器,同时修复他们的主应用程序。 (我以前试过这个。)



NordVPN一直在所有VPN在线中排名第一。 NordVPN位于巴拿马,没有强制数据保留法,因此绝对不存储日志。




许多网站都没有告诉你这一点,但在2019年,即使付费VPN在中国也不能100%运作。 它也取决于城市,有时它在北京工作但不在上海工作,反之亦然。 像上面这样的好的VPN不断更新其算法以最大限度地减少停机时间。 您仍然肯定希望用1或2个免费VPN补充您的付费VPN作为备份。


绕过中国防火墙的万无一失的方法是使用港澳SIM卡。 这是因为即使香港和澳门是中国的一部分,根据“一国两制”法,也没有防火墙。 总之,您一定可以使用此SIM卡访问Facebook,WhatsApp,Google。

如果您是轻度到中度的互联网用户(SIM卡具有6 GB的快速数据限制,之后您仍然拥有数据但速度降低到128kbps),这是一个很好的选择。



The Greatest China 30-Day Data SIM

Complete Guide to VPN in China

How to Access Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, WhatsApp in China

It is well-known that several essential websites are blocked in China:

  • The entire Google suite of products. This includes Gmail, Google search, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Scholar, etc.
  • The entire Facebook suite of products. This also includes WhatsApp since it is owned by Facebook.
  • Most other “Western” social media, such as Twitter.
  • Most blogging sites, including, This includes not only the login pages but also all sites created by,, etc.
  • Most file-sharing sites, such as Dropbox.
  • Wikipedia

As you can see, the Great Firewall of China blocks many essential services that will inconvenience most people, whether you are a businessman, student, or just a casual tourist. It has worsened in recent years (2019 onwards) as the Firewall has gotten much stronger and many VPNs do not work as well as they did.

In this comprehensive guide, we will cover a variety of options (VPNs and more) that will help you bypass the Great Firewall of China, and connect to Google, YouTube, Facebook, et cetera. We include Free as well as Paid services, as well as non-VPN solutions.

***Very Important: All the VPNs be it free or paid must be downloaded and set up before you enter China. Once you enter China, you may not be able to download or set up an account on the VPN.

Free VPNs

Most websites do not tell you about Free VPNs as they gain no benefit (commission) from doing so. We will only recommend trusted, reliable free VPNs here. Do note that there exists some shady “free” VPNs that have the potential to steal or leak your data. The below Free VPNs do not require any credit card data.

***Important: If you are only relying on Free VPNs, it is recommended to download and set up 2 or 3 alternatives. This is because Free VPNs are usually less stable and more prone to be blocked as there are fewer server locations.

Windscribe Free VPN Review

A very decent Free VPN that is from a actual professional company. You get around 10 GB free data bandwidth that resets each month, with potential to get more by tweeting or referring to your friends.

Windscribe 10 GB free with potential to get more just by Tweeting on Twitter.

I have personally tried the Free version of Windscribe in different cities in China, and it works (most of the time). Do not expect perfect connection though. If you decide to go with Free Windscribe, sign up here at the official Windscribe website.

TunnelBear Free Review

TunnelBear also provides a free plan (500 MB monthly) that does not require any credit card info from you. Based on my experience, Windscribe Free is better than TunnelBear free (based on chance of connection, and number of server locations). However, that being said, it can very well occur that at any given time, TunnelBear can connect while Windscribe cannot. Hence, the recommendation is to get both Free Windscribe and TunnelBear.

Lantern VPN Free Review

Lantern VPN is unique in the sense that it is not a VPN, but rather a “peer network sharing” tool. Since it works differently from a VPN, it could be the case that it is not blocked while other VPNs are. Lantern has a Free option (URL: which allows you to browse restricted websites while in China.

If you decide to upgrade to the paid version (Lantern Pro), you get more data and faster speed. Use my code YJVD2WT and get 3 months free when you sign up!

Conclusion for Free VPNs

It cannot be overemphasized that you need more than 1 choice if you are going the Free VPN route. It is highly recommended that you download and setup all of the above 3 Free VPNs before stepping foot into China.

Paid VPNs

Paid VPNs (翻墙软件 in Chinese) refer to those that require a monthly (or yearly) subscription fee. What many sites don’t tell you is that even Paid VPNs do not work 100%. Typically the VPNs are in an arms race with the Great Firewall. Once the Firewall makes an algorithm update to block the VPN, the VPN will engage in a time scramble to unblock itself. During that time, the VPN will not be accessible to the public. That being said, paid VPNs have more server options so it is more likely that it can successfully connect to one of those servers, compared to free VPNs which typically only have a few server locations.

PureVPN Review

PureVPN is our top choice for Paid VPNs due to its affordability and its track record.

PureVPN has a special “Optimized for China” set of servers, which allow users to bypass the Great Firewall of China effectively and automatically. In the event of intense blocking by the Firewall, just contact the PureVPN support which is very responsive. They will then direct you to adhoc manual steps to connect to a server, while they fix their main app. (I have tried this before.)

NordVPN Review

NordVPN is consistently ranked top among all VPNs online. NordVPN is based in Panama which has no mandatory data retention law so they absolutely do not store logs.

NordVPN also has the ““obfuscated servers” function which disguises a user’s traffic to better avoid it being detected by the Firewall.

Sign up for NordVPN using this official NordVPN link.

Conclusion for Paid VPNs

Many sites don’t tell you this, but in 2019 even Paid VPNs do not work 100% in China. Also it depends on the city, sometimes it works in Beijing but not Shanghai and vice versa. Good VPNs like the above work constantly to update their algorithm to minimize the downtime. You would still definitely want to supplement your Paid VPN with 1 or 2 Free VPNs to serve as backup.

Hong Kong-Macau SIM Card

The foolproof method of bypassing the Great Firewall of China is to use a Hong Kong-Macau SIM card. This is because even though Hongkong and Macau are part of China, there is no Firewall there under the “One Country, Two Systems” law. In summary, you will definitely be able to access Facebook, WhatsApp, Google using this SIM card.

This is an excellent option if you are a light to moderate internet user (the SIM card has a fast data limit of 6 GB, after which you still have data but the speed is reduced to 128kbps).

Tip: You should purchase the SIM card from China Unicom as it is one of the largest and most reliable telecommunications company in China.

China Education Documentary

Similar to Singapore, China has different tiers of universities. The top tier in China is Tier 1 (一本). Within Tier 1, there is a further differentiation of “Project 985” and “Project 211” universities, the former being more selective. That is, Project 985 universities is a subset of Project 211 universities.  “Project 985” universities consists of 39 top universities, including Peking University and Tsinghua University.

The above documentary exposes some fraudulent private universities that are out to con money from simple, rural folk. It also shows the hardship experienced by the young people in China, where salaries are low but living expenses can be quite high.

Summary from IMDB:

In ancient times in China, education was the only way out of poverty; in recent times it has been the best way. China’s economic boom and talk of the merits of hard work have created an expectation that to study is to escape poverty. Many Chinese parents see getting a degree as a way of ensuring their children have better, less impoverished lives than their own. But in 1997, the Chinese government privatized universities and education became a commodity. It’s a money-making business where there’s a profit to be made – The University Entrance Exams Day – the day students receive their results – often determines the future of one’s whole life. If you get good results, you get into the state-subsidized universities. If you don’t, there are other universities you can get into but they are more costly, often substandard, and run as lucrative businesses. Some unscrupulous colleges employ marketing techniques to target poor, rural families who are often less streetwise to their tactics. More often than not, these families can’t afford the tuition fees and some end up selling livestock and even their homes to cover the cost of their child’s education. But many colleges can’t live up to their promises and each year, more than two million graduates in China do not find work. For students and families who incurred debt while studying, education is no longer a way out of poverty but a cause of it along with unemployment and despair.

Alibaba launches scholarship programme in S’pore with generous funding

Source: Today Online

Alibaba has partnered with NTU to launch a scholarship program on computer science topics like artificial intelligence, data analytics and cloud computing.

The scholarship funding is very generous: monthly salary of 5,000 SGD for 4 years, with other benefits like CPF, insurance, etc. This is at least 40-50% more than most PhD scholarships in Singapore. Each PhD candidate will also have the opportunity to be mentored by at least one supervisor from his/her enrolled university and one co-supervisor from Alibaba.

It sounds like a very good opportunity for those interested in IT. Hopefully Alibaba will set up more of such facilities and programs in the future.

Where to buy dumplings (饺子) in Singapore


Dumplings (饺子) is a staple food in Northern China. However it is rare to find it in Singapore. Often in NTUC Fairprice, or other supermarkets, Gyoza (Japanese Dumplings) or Korean dumplings can be found, but not Chinese dumplings. Making your own dumplings is possible, but very time consuming.

Recently I found out about “Yongle Kitchen”, which sells authentic Shandong style dumplings. Check out their video below, it looks very professional.

The Dangerous Math of Chinese Island Disputes


China’s standoff with Japan over the rocky Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands has entered its second month. The current confrontation, however, is more dangerous than is commonly believed. China’s past behavior in other territorial disputes demonstrates why the Senkaku standoff is primed to explode.

Since 1949, China has been involved in 23 territorial disputes with its neighbors on land and at sea. Seventeen of them have been settled, usually through compromise agreements. Nevertheless, China has used force, often more than once, in six of these disputes. And it’s these cases that most closely parallel the Senkaku impasse.

To start, China has usually only used force in territorial disputes with its most militarily capable neighbors. These include wars or major clashes with India, Russia and Vietnam (several times), as well as crises involving Taiwan. These states have had the greatest ability to check China’s territorial ambitions. In disputes with weaker states, such as Mongolia or Nepal, Beijing has eschewed force because it could negotiate from a position of strength. Japan is now China’s most powerful maritime neighbor, with a modern navy and a large coast guard.

PISA 2012: Shanghai VS Singapore


Shanghai teens top international education ranking, OECD says

By Sophie Brown, CNN
December 3, 2013 — Updated 2051 GMT (0451 HKT)

(CNN) — When it comes to mathematics, reading and science, young people in Shanghai are the best in the world, according to a global education survey released Tuesday.

In all three subjects, Shanghai students demonstrated knowledge and skills equivalent to at least one additional year of schooling than their peers in countries like the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom.

In math, Shanghai had the highest score with 613 points — the equivalent of nearly three years of schooling above the average for the 34 OECD member countries of 494, and six years above Peru which ranked last with a score of 368. The city also came top in 2009 rankings.

Singapore came second in mathematics with a score of 573, followed by Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, and Macau.

U.S. lags

The United States ranked 36th, performing below the OECD average in mathematics with 481 points, and a score indistinguishable from the average for reading and science.

Part of the reason pupils do so well in Shanghai, according to the OECD’s deputy director of education, Andreas Schleicher, is that they have the drive and confidence to fulfill their potential.

“In China and Shanghai, you have nine out of ten students telling you, ‘It depends on me. If I invest the effort, my teachers are going to help me to be successful’,” Schleicher told CNN’s On China program, which will air later this month.

Why are China students so good at Math & Sciences?



I’m sure many secondary school/Junior College students have know some China scholars in your schools scoring results that are seemingly impossible to reach (90+ for H2 Maths etc.) But when asked what’s their secret to scoring so well, they said they just study & memorize the same way any other student would do before exams. 

I heard from my seniors that China scholars usually study till 2 am every night, but I don’t buy into that. I think they’re just exaggerated rumors to explain their excellent grades. Some of my friends say that China’s education gave them really solid foundation, such that they can grasp concepts much faster than the rest.  

Anybody know their secret to doing so well?


It seems like the secret of the China scholars is “practice makes perfect”!

The Time magazine even recommends Over-Practicing (

Math, Science, Reading Scores Show U.S. Schools Slipping Behind


Math, Science, Reading Scores Show U.S. Schools Slipping Behind

Posted: December 10, 2010 PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION: PDF

The United States received a stark wake-up call this week with the release of international test results showing students in other countries are surpassing American students when it comes to math, science and reading. China and Australia outperformed the U.S. in each of the three subject areas tested.

The results of a major international education assessment show that American students are lagging behind many other countries in crucial skills like reading, math and science.

“The United States came in 23rd or 24th in most subjects. We can quibble, or we can face the brutal truth that we’re being out-educated,” said U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

Test compares U.S. to other countries

The PISA tests how advanced students are in science, math and reading compared to their peers around the world.

The test, known as the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), directly assesses how prepared teenagers are in math, science and reading compared to their peers in other countries.
The test is translated into each country’s language, and officials from the participating countries are able to review questions before students take the exam to make sure each test is fair and unbiased.

In the U.S., the participating schools and students are randomly selected. On average, about 4,500 students are tested in each of the participating countries.

China and Finland lead the way

Chinese and Finnish students scored highest on the PISA test.

Each PISA subject area is scored on a scale where 500 points is the average. The results announced this week show many countries outperforming the U.S. Here’s a sample:

Math: China 600, Germany 513, United States 487 (31st place)

Reading: China 556, Korea 539, United States 500 (17th place)

Science: China 575, Finland 554, United States 502 (23rd place)

The results of a major international education assessment show that  American students are lagging behind many other countries in crucial skills like reading, math and science.

In China, all parents know that maths is the number one subject in schools


‘Above all, it is a cultural thing.” Professor Lianghuo Fan is reflecting on the differences he has noticed between maths education in China and Singapore, where he lived and taught for 40 years, and in Britain, where he is now based. “In China, all parents know that maths is the number one subject in schools, and they expect that in a modern society everyone must be comfortable with maths, even if that means they have to work hard at it.“That attitude is passed on to their children. But here in Britain, you can feel students’ attitude about mathematics is different. They feel all right if they say they don’t like mathematics.”

Professor Fan is not alone in highlighting this national phobia of ours about maths. The government has this week shown itself determined to tackle the problem head on with the unveiling of a new “back-to-basics” primary school maths curriculum, with a renewed emphasis on times-tables, mental arithmetic, fractions and rote learning.

Most people over 40 will see the proposals as a return to the classroom practice of their childhood – but in its introductory remarks the Department for Education claimed inspiration from Asian model that Professor Fan knows so well: “I never heard a child in China or Singapore say that they don’t like maths’,” he stresses, “without a sense of embarrassment.”

We are sitting in a café near Southampton University – where 50-year-old Professor Fan has been head of the Mathematics and Science Education Research Centre since 2010 – as we try to decide if anything lies behind the popular stereotype that Asian children are “naturally” better at maths than those in the West. It is, for example, in the core storyline of Safe, the recent Hollywood blockbuster, starring Jason Statham. An 11-year-old girl, Mei (played by Chinese-born actress Catherine Chan), is a maths prodigy who can decode number sequences at a glance – and therefore has to be protected from the baddies.

Chinese Math Students vs English Math Students


This is a recent test used in England:

Here’s a Chinese math test:

a math question from a Chinese college entrance test

Now we know why students from China are so good at Maths!

Make Britain Count: ‘Stop telling children maths isn’t for them’


“The title comes from the central argument of the book,” says Birmingham-raised
Boaler, “namely the idea that maths is a gift that some have and some don’t.
That’s the elephant in the classroom. And I want to banish it. I believe
passionately that everybody can be good at maths. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Studies of the brain show that all kids can do well at maths,
unless they have some specific learning difficulty.”

But what about those booming Asian economies, with their ready flow of mathematically able graduates? “There are a lot of misconceptions about the methods that are used in China, Japan and Korea,” replies Boaler. “Their way of teaching maths is much more conceptual than it is in England. If you look at the textbooks they use, they are tiny.”

Professor Boaler’s tips on how parents can help Make Britain Count.

1 Encourage children to play maths puzzles and games at home. Anything with a dice will help them enjoy maths and develop numeracy and logic skills.

2 Never tell children they are wrong when they are working on maths problems. There is always some logic to what they are doing. So if your child multiplies three by four and gets seven, try: “Oh I see what you are thinking, you are using what you know about addition to add three and four. When we multiply we have four groups of three…”

3 Maths is not about speed. In younger years, forcing kids to work fast on maths is the best way to start maths anxiety, especially among girls.

4 Don’t tell your children you were bad at maths at school. Or that you disliked it. This is especially important if you are a mother.

5 Encourage number sense. What separates high and low achievers in primary school is number sense.

6 Encourage a “growth mindset” – the idea that ability changes as you work more and learn more.
