Welcome to EF

We all know what it is like to be new and we hope that by participating in activities and discussions in this group that you will be better prepared.

As a member of the group you will receive a newsletter touching on topics to do with EF, China and teaching. Remember that the point is for you to enjoy your preparation and be pointed to material and content that is relevant to you at this time. There is the saying that the more you put in the more you will get out of it and we believe just that!

We also suggest that you join two other groups to start your networking opportunities. There is a group for you arrival month. This is a space for you to be able to help and be helped by people arriving at the same time as you. There is also a group for each city and by joining you will be able to start networking with current teachers, see what's happening and get a feel for your new home away from home.

So check for your newsletter each week and jump into the discussions below and in various blogs on the site.

Hi All.  Sorry if this has already been mentioned before, but there were a lot of posts to go through!  I have an unlocked smartphone that I would like to take with me to Beijing.  Will I get a chip or something that I can just install on my phone to make it work in China?
