Q: What can you tell me about teaching and life in Zhejiang Province? Dalian? Shanghai?

I'm thinking of coming to China to teach and I need help deciding on where would be best to go.  I am being recruited by a school in Shangyu city, Zhejiang Province. However, I am also considering Dalian and Shanghai. Please tell me about your experiences here?

I lived and taught in a private school in Dalian last year. I would totally recommend it, it was a great city to live in, good food, nice people.. This year im in Zhejiang, between hangzhou and shangyu, and although it is not a bad place and I enjoy my job, I liked Dalian much more...no idea about life in Shanghai though.
Good luck!

I like Zhejiang more than other places in China I've been to and my company has had me in three different cities so far, but do you have any specific questions? There's a world of difference between even South and North Hangzhou, not to mention the whole province

I lived in Dalian for about a year and a half.  It was a great city to live in.  But the main problem for me was the winter.  It gets really cold & windy for about 4 months out of the year.

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
