Dear all. Johnny Wu greets you all here. Unlike most of you, I'm a native Chinese, working as an English tutor. Though I picked up my English totally by self-teaching, my acquisition of English is something worth my pride. As a Chinese teacher, I have a profound understanding of how Chinese students learn English, so I do have some valuable experience which I'd like to share with my counterparts. plus, as a fifty-something, I can take the liberty to say I can be your dictionary on anything about China. So read me if you are interested.

Hello Wendy - Thanks for joining. Sounds like you travel all over the city to teach. I am hoping that in the beginning we will be located in one place.

Vic Thanks for the info, we are not really the clubbing kind but we are the adventuresome sports, movies, dinners, gabbing kind. As for the harp - it is always hard to find but this is why I put out feelers early, you never know when you, or anyone else reading might catch wind of some information. I hope this is what happens - I am just looking to practice on one(preferably) or rent one. I have one of my own here at home in Texas.

Oh, about social gathering places!

I believe you'll find out quickly where they are...:-)) There are clubs all over Shenzhen, but I can't tell you which ones are better than others because I rarely go. There is a place in the West of Shenzhen called Shekou, a famous expat area. An enclave , so to say :-)) If your school is Nanshan, you might want to settle there.

As for a classical harp...that is a good question. Are you looking to buy or to rent one? I'm sure you can buy absolutely any musical instrument in Shenzhen, only I believe a harp might be somewhat expensive.
If you only just want to practise, I am not sure there is a place to do that. There are plenty of places to practise the piano where I often go myself, but I've never heard of ones for the harp.
You'll be able to find out once you are here - the staff in your school should be able to help you.
Cheers,

Hi Melissa!

Do you happen to know which part of the city you'll be working in? There are a few E1s and Smart Schools around.
It all depends what kind of environment you prefer. I personally like Futian and Nanshan, but I'd never live in Luohu. However, I know people who swear by Luohu and wouldn't move anywhere else. Luohu is the oldest part of the city and it is the busiest and (in my opinion) the dirtiest. Interestingly, this is what its fans like about it. Each to his own :-)
When you're here, I think you'll get a chance to look around and see for yourself which district is preferrable. I believe also help should be given to you in finding accomodation (no one in the agencies speaks any English, so the school should help you out). But then your choice will depend a lot on where your school will be located.
Hope this helps,

Vic

Hi Vic,
We are actually doing both I will be at E1 and Paul will be at the Smart School. Glad to hear that it is relatively good. We are not expecting the best but we are looking forward to the city and the opportunities that SZ has to offer.

Any suggestions on accommodation locations or social gathering sites - also looking for (strange question) a classical harp to play while I am there. Anyhow hope to hear from any of you on any of these issues - or just more comments on EF Shenzhen. Thanks

Hi Melissa!

Which EF are you coming to? Is it E1 (kids mostly) or a Smart School?
I guess EF is a relatively good starting point when coming to China. Better than most other places.
