I will be arriving in Shanghai in September and will be looking for a roomate. I do not smoke, I am clean and organized, I have lived in various countries with different nationalities so I can live with anyone. I will be teaching in a new EF project in Shanghai. I am outgoing, active and do a lot of sports and like to have fun.

Estoy buscando un companero de piso. Llego en septiembre a Shanghai, y a ver si hay alquien que necesite un companero de piso, no fumo, soy una persona limpia, organizada, meticulosa  y honesta.


Arrivo in septembre in Shangai. spero trovare una persona con il quale possiamo vivere insieme, se ci sono italiani in shanghai, fammi sapere.

My husband and I are moving out of a lovely two bedroom 1 bath apartment in Haidian District, Beijing. It is right off Line 4 Weigongcun. If you are with EF Kids and Teens it is closest to BJ 7, 1, and 5. If you are with Smart Schools you can literally see the ZGC Gate City Mall center from our window. We are also close to Xizhimen.  I am not sure if our landlord will go up in rent, but he was so fantastic. Building maintenance is great also. He bought pretty high end furniture and our bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds (you'll learn this is a luxury in China). We also have a western bathroom with a tub. Right now we pay 8000 RMB but with a roommate I think you would find it was worth it. It can hold a lot of guests for socials.
