Re: Xujing DIstrict in Shanghai

I really appreciate the replies!!! Thank you so so much, everyone!!! @WinterFerret my school is 12-16 minutes (depends on the route) to the nearest station, which is East Xujing. It’s about 5km…which I don’t think I’d mind walking on good days but I heard the traffic can be intimidating. I have not ...

Xujing DIstrict in Shanghai

So, I have made the decision move to teach in Shanghai. I am all set. I'm sure it will be a great learning experience. I'm also looking forward to learning more about China during this time. The plan is to stay near the school for the initial phase. I understand that will be in Xujing. What's the en...

Re: Living in Shanghai

@Psyguy Pardon my clumsy fingers. What I was trying to say is that I am only able to start in an IS on January, after the winter break. I am unable to leave earlier. In a nutshell, I can only start in January and I really don't want to wait until August 2018 before I move. What would you say? Also, ...

Re: Living in Shanghai

I'd be happy if Netfilx works there! So many different views about the salary! I am actually an experienced teacher. I have a BA in education and have taught in public schools at home (not international schools) over the last 12 years. I probably could get a better salary in a different school but t...

Re: Living in Shanghai

I am so glad I found ISR! What would I do without all of you! I'm a female so I don't have to worry about spending money on dating Shanghainese women in Shanghai. ;) But wow... I'm surprised how the salary can differ so greatly from school to school. A few questions regarding that: 1. Does IS genera...

Re: Living in Shanghai

Thank you so much for your replies! Well, I am not into nightlife so I should be fine. Could you give me a rough idea of what the basic living expenses are like over there?
