ask for pictures of the housing provided, especially the bathroom and kitchen. Also, is there air-con? When were the filters last cleaned? Ask who is expected to pay for utilities. About the area you are going to be living in: how far is the nearest supermarket etc. ? Work: get your role and responsibilities clearly spelt out. Question anything you are not sure about. Bottom line - ask ALL the questions first  before you sign !

3000? Although you will be able to live on that, it's not going to be a very comfortable existence.

Especially when the bills start coming in (eg: water, heating).

 

If you are prepared to live a simple lifestyle, then make sure you get ALL questions answered. Make sure your conditions are written down and also ask about overtime.

Generally, all workers here are expected to do unpaid overtime. Make sure you set out clearly that this is not an option with you.

As Mike has said, 3600 RMB is a very low salary for foreigners coming to work in China, even for Hubei. It is very difficult to live on what the locals can, plus your flight expenses, medical, and being able to travel a bit. As long as you are aware of that. Very easy to get jobs that pay triple that if you want to teach.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
