Memrise Mandarin Chinese group.
As I couldn't search for a friend who is also using Memrise to help learn Mandarin, I've just created a group there instead. All welcome! Follow this link to join the 'China teachers' group and make your Memrise Mandarin even more marvellous:   https://www.memrise.com/group/183950/

Hi everyone, headed to Guangzhou for 23rd of August from Ireland. Excited but nervous at the same time. How are people finding it? As far as I knew, once arriving over and staying in the hotel, accommodation will be sorted from there. Do people recommend  doing this in advance of arriving? If so, I will be looking for a few room mates :) Be great to touch base with people arriving at the same time as myself :D

Hey guys, provided the visa process runs smoothly I should be landing in Guangzhou in September! Just looking to potentially meet teachers already established in the city and also people headed there soon. Will most likely also be looking for a roommate or 2 nearer the time! Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hello everyone! I currently live in Florence, South Carolina. I will be arriving in Guangzhou in July. I will be teaching kids and teens. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and living in a new country! Any advice on housing, setting up accounts, and "must dos prior to leaving the States" is greatly appreciated.

Hello Everyone, I am currently in Pasadena, California, I am set to arrive in Guangzhou in June 2017. I am looking forward to meeting everyone. I have been to Guangzhou, Beijing, before as a tourist. But worked and lived in Hong Kong and Shenzhen for over 2 years. I am originally from Minneapolis Minnesota and lived 25 year in Atlanta, Georgia before moving to southern California in 2012. I am interested in finding a nice affordable apartment? Does anyone know of the typical monthly cost of a one bedroom? or is anyone looking for a roommate for a two bedroom apartment? Let me know ? Thanks!!
