I am pleased with the process for recruitment by EF Education First. From interview stage to departure stage, the process has taken a total of 35 days. During…

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?

Orientation in Beijing - 22 August arrival date

Hey everybody,

I arrive in Beijing on 22 August, and will be based in Tianjin.

Those of us that  teach in other cities, will have the Saturday and Sunday free, since those that work in Beijing do apartment hunting on the weekend.

I'd like to use the 'free time' to explore some of the sights in Beijing. If anyone else is available, please let me know - perhaps we can see the sights together.

Have a great weekend.

Hey Everybody,

VPN is a foreign concept to me, but I've done some research amongst friends that have had to use it, and found that ExpressVPN works the best.

I've just activated mine now, the offer I chose gave me 3 months free access and then $99 for a further 12 months. In terms of value, this is great too - an investment of only $7 per month for 15 months. ($99 is charged upon signing up).

If you'd like to explore this offer, click on the link…
