For those teachers who are already in Beijing, when did you find out your work address?

And how long from finding that out did you go looking for an apartment or 2/3 bedroom flat? Thanks.

Does anyone have tips for flying the long distance? What can I bring to occupy my time on the plane?

VPNs are a tricky business. There are several free and cheap ones out there but the quality is generally not so great with those. There are 2 VPNs that the recruitment team uses. About half of us use StrongVPN while the others use Astrill. Both have proven to be quite effective. I've had StrongVPN for two years and not had any problems with it on either my phone or my laptop.

Hi Cristia, ive done some research into this and this is the one Im going to use ;


It has high ratings on comparison sites and seems to provide a lot for your money :)

Hello everyone!  I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a good (inexpensive) VPN to use while in China.

I was wondering how many people, if anyone enrolls in a masters/doctorate program while teaching english in Beijing? I would love to have at least started, if not completed my masters of education by the end of the 1 year program. Is anyone thinking the same thing? Is anyone already enrolled?

Hi Cristia. If you look in groups you'll find a Beijing July 2014 group, feel free to request to join it and I'll approve you :).

Hi everyone!

My name is Cristia, and I'll be arriving in Beijing in late July/early August 2014.  I'm really excited (and a little nervous!) about coming to China, and I can't wait to meet everyone.  I don't know if there is a group yet for July/August arrivals, but if there is, I'd love to meet you all and hear other people's thoughts on moving to China.
