Q: Places to meet people in Changshu, Jiangsu

Is  anyone familiar with Changshu, Jiangsu Province?  I have been here a couple of weeks, can't seem to find ANY local places to meet English speakers.  

 

Does anyone have any leads?  My Chinese is terrible, and I'm going nuts only being able to chat with my coworkers and students.

Check other Schools and Training mills in the area for more FTs.

 

Sometimes students tell me about other FTs in the area.

Spiderboenz:

I was thinking more along the lines of Chinese English speakers, not so much Expats, but I will keep that in mind.

Most likely, you'll find Chinese English speakers at Training mills.

 

Almost every bank in China has at least one English speaker. Try CMerchantsBank, BOC or SPD.

Why not coming to Suzhou during the week-ends ? I'm not into the expat community, but there are plenty of expats. The Blue Marlin next to the Li Gong Di district (with all the banks and the pant-shaped ginormous building under construction) is always full of expats.

You are close from Suzhou SIP, come and enjoy a walk around Jinli Lake, it's a nice relaxing walk ! We can have a beer if you like Tongue

Meet someone in real life from online...But... What if that means that Vicky is real too?! 

 

So long as it's not a big American hangout.  I have some issues with other American males that are best dealt with by me not being around them

DrMonkey:

At the Blue Marlin (I know it because my wife works close from it), a lot of the expats there are tall and quite overweight. Not sure what variety of expats they are, I hear a fair amount of Australian and US English there. Lots of Japanese too. Me, I'm French and the size of a gnome, so you'll be safe.

It's not my safety I'm worried about.
