Bring a gas mask. No kidding. In the past 2 months there have been warnings to stay indoors on my cell phone.  I trust you are in good shape if you plan to live there for a year.

I  worked there last year for a full academic term. There are some good places to go for entertainment and food.  Both Chinese and western.  There are a large number of foreigners, both western and Asian.

the downside will come depending on which your location; in the inner ring road, or in the countryside. Do not try to take a taxi during rush hour. You will have to haggle. SJZ has a Walmart and a Carrefour. The cost of living is less than most capital cities in China.

Pros: Cost of living is low. Some decent bars and Western restaurants.

Cons: Pollution, grey skies, too cold in winter, too hot in summer.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
