In Beijing, wouldn't think so, unless you plan to never leave home except for work. 

2000 is really not a lot, a trup to Burger King costs 40-50, bit of bus-tickets, a new pair of socks. 2000 is gone quickly.

Yes it's fine for you.. You must be coming on CSC scholarship program. You can definitely save something. But what amount can you save? this depends on the place you are appointed at. In Beijing, my (2+1 persons) expense was 2500-3000 monthly But now that I am in Qingdao my monthly expenditure is 2000... (2+1 person)

Plus on the other side there is an off the record secret I d like to make you happy is that there is a 50-60% chance that the Professor who will supervise you for your PhD degree will also provide you some allowance apart from the scholarship money. At least that's what happens in Beijing. Not sure about other places. For more details you can PM me..

Invest in a rice cooker and some simple cooking instruments if you are allowed. Eat at your school's cafeteria and you'll be fine. And please do not work part time teaching English.

I would concentrate on studying and not bother about thinking about saving from 2000 RMB.

 

Even if you saved half every month at would take you almost a year to save enough for a return ticket to a western country.

 

You could easily blow 2000 in a single night out.  And that's without a happy ending.

 

So, assuming your flight home is paid for etc, I suggest you just enjoy yourself. You will be penny pinching on 2k as it is.

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
