I've got only a few (million) questions

Hello fellow EF teachers!

I am due to embark on my Chinese adventure in a little over a month- you can catch me in Chongqing after October 25th! I spent a semester of college in Europe studying abroad, and even with the travel experience I gained over those months I have a thousand curiosities about what life will be like in China (I mean don't we all?!)  I'll list some of my current questions below, and would truuuuly…

August Arrival in Beijing

Soon to be expat Englishman in Foshan!

Hi all - first post. I'm from Manchester, England and if nothing goes wrong with the final stages of the visa process I'll be in Foshan (close to Guangzhou) in three weeks' time. Oh my...it sounds even scarier when I actually type it. It's nice to see some of you will be Guangzhou based but is anybody else going to be in Foshan. Hope all your preparations are going well :)
