"So with something like express VPN you'll be good to watch your series but brace yourself for the slowest internet connection of your entire life. as opposed to streaming we just download the episodes instead and then binge watch :) "

"These responses are both helpful and reassuring - thank you both! Do either of you have any idea roughly how much I should be paying for a VPN? I had a look on ExpressVPN but couldn't see prices. I think I'm definitely going to need help…"

"From what I can tell, ExpressVPN seems to be the go-to VPN for expats in China. You can install or configure it on as many devices as you like (i.e., computers, mobile devices, streaming media consoles and wireless routers). With one subscription,…"

"Hello! From my understanding, with a VPN, I know that Netflix would work out there. I don't know how fast the internet is out there. And for Spotify, I am on the same boat as you and do not know if it would work out there. With the phone, from…"

"I personally don't see why there would be a problem - you would've already paid for the year and unless they specifically say you can't bring anyone i think it'll be fine :)"

The Interweb!

As my arrival date (21st November) draws nearer I'm beginning to think of 101 questions none of which are probably that important in the great scheme of things. This must be normal. I can't be alone here. Right? The latest dilemma I'm facing is what to do with my Netflix and Spotify subscriptions - sadly, I am STUCK with my phone contract. Will I still be able to use my usual streaming services out in China or is it worth cancelling them before I leave? I use both Netflix and Spotify daily and…See More

Leases, Rentals, Visas, Confused...

A somewhat unusual question to pose to you guys. Maybe somebody already out in China will be able to offer a bit of advice or shed some light...I head out to Shenzhen in November. My boyfriend is also headed to Shenzhen but won't arrive until January. Obviously our plan is to live together but I've read that the rules and regulations are pretty strict when it comes to visas and housing leases/contracts etc. As we will both be in China on visas can anybody see there being a major issue with me…See More

"I think you could be right, Simon, it's going to take a mixture of different approaches to get there. I may have to browse a few books at the store and pick one just to get me started at least. I never thought of using YouTube to help though so…"

Learning Mandarin

What advice does everybody have for learning Mandarin?

I know we have online classes at our disposal but due to time differences the classes are in the middle of the night. My current work schedule does not allow for me to attend regular classes or have a set time with a tutor each week so it looks like I'm doing this on my own. 

I am familiar with apps like Duolingo which definitely do help with building your vocabulary but aren't so helpful when it comes to…
