15 October 2019 - Final day before departure for EF China (Shenzhen)

The dream is real.

 Been thinking about teaching abroad for a while now, it's absolutely crazy how quick my recruiter got back to me telling me that I was successful! The dream is real and I will be teaching in Fuzhou in January :). If anyone is around that area and can give me any tips/ information that would be fantastic.

Can't Sign-in To WeChat

Hi guys,

I can't sign in to WeChat. My account was suspended for suspicious activity right after I created my profile. To recover my account I need the help of a WeChat user who has had the app for more than 6 months, is an active user, and hasn't assisted in this process before. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. My number is +1 562-508-0194. Thanks guys!

Beijing September 2019

Hey people, i'm just looking to do some network and meet anybody who's going to be in the same boat as myself. I'm from Newcastle and i'd probably best describe myself as a easy going kinda nerdy guy. Hit me up if you wanna chat :)

Hi Everyone!

I am going to be in Guangzhou in Sept. Who else is or will be in the area then? I'm looking to connect with some people to start making friends before arrival. I have never been to China and am excited and nervous about getting there. How about you?  I do really love to sew, read, and hike as my favorite past times. This summer I am hoping to plan three camping trips and a visit to the beach. What are your favorite things to do?

Travel vaccinations

Hi everyone! Just wondering if anybody in Shanghai or arriving soon can help. My doctor advised me that I should get a number of vaccinations before travelling to China. I got a couple through the NHS however theres a number of other ones that I have to pay for. Is it entirely necessary? Atm it just seems like another expense if I could just get them when I arrive in China. Did anyone else get vaccinated before arriving?
