Hi everyone- I'm Jessica from Connecticut, USA. I'm heading to GZ in January and will be teaching adults. I would love to find a roommate(s) to share an apartment with when we arrive. Feel free to send me a message if you're interested and want to chat more. Safe travels everyone!

@ Mark. It may be different for others, but it seems to me like it all depends on the leasing contract. Myself and 2 others just moved into a place in GZ that was already established and we took over the lease that expired at the same time the others were leaving. If you leave after the year with EF, you shouldn't have to find someone to take over.

I was wondering if someone might be able to enlighten me. It seems that when people are moving out of their places of residence to head home, they almost have to find a replacement first. Is there truth to this? Or am I just assuming this?

Hi everyone,

I'm an out-going teacher in Guangzhou, helping my roommate to find a new roommate. 1 room available in a 4-bedroom apartment in Liede in early August. Let me know soon if you're interested!
