Hello 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 :)

A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Beijing, China
Culture-Shock-in-Beijing
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
If you get angry or frustrated or lonely easily, living abroad won't be for you. You really need to love adventure. And remember to always be polite, you get more with suger than with salt. (Continue)

jaspervdkolk posted Recent graduated Dutch looking for a job on the China forum on August 27, 2014:
Dear fellow China lovers, My name is Jasper van der Kolk. I am looking for a job in China at this moment. I have just finished my (bachelor) studies "International Business and Languages" where I have studied subjects like: Intercultural communication, International Marketing, International business management etc. I have a good understanding of 4 languages: Dutch, Spanish, English and German. I have a basic understanding of Mandarin Chinese, which I would like to develop once I have landed in China. I have stayed in China before, one semester in Chongqing and one semester in Shenzhen. If there is anyone that has an idea of where to look for a job, or maybe someone would have a offer for me, feel free to ask for my CV, as I am happy to send it to you. Thanks in advance, Jasper van der Kolk

Hi, I will be moving to Chongqing in January. Any ideas or assistance on these two questions is much appreciated: 1) What is the best language learning program I can buy NOW to give me a head start for when I move to China? 2) When I arrive in January 2015, is there a particular Mandarin school that anyone can suggest I attend? Thank you!

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.
