replied to the thread New in Weifang
on the China forum:
I arrived to Weifang beginning this month from Singapore. The thing is I don't seem to meet any expats here even thru couple of websites. I've heard that Qingdao is about an hour or so from here and would like to visit there sometime in Dec. Would be great if I can get some suggestions of places to visit or to get to know any expats there. Thanks :)
I am new to Weifang and looking for expats in the area. Just arrived - so looking for answers to : best mobile phone, best bank, best ATM fees etc. Any advice is much appreciated!!
Full furnished, modern style decoration, nice area, close to big supermarket, shopping center

If you are a devoted teacher, patient and hardworking, looking for international work experience and cross-cultural understanding, than job in China is the best choice for you. Two of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in China are waiting for you. Coastal cities of Shanghai and Qingdao are cultural, economical and financial centers of China, with lots of awesome work opportunities.
China's economy has been growing rapidly, since China became the leading business gigant and the largest market in the world. Chinese people fully understand the importance of English as the international means of communication. Boom in English learning led to desperate need for native English speakers.
Language schools in China try their best to create international environment for students and provide freedom and independence to teachers.
Salaries range from 7000 - 15000 RMB per month. Often, salaries can be negotiated.
Growing and young cities like Qingdao provide accomodation and reimburse for travel expenses.
Teachers, that sign a one-year contract get Viza Z (work visa) and business insurance.
