Moving this August to Hangzhou Fuyang

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! My name is Lydia and I am moving to Hangzhou Fuyang to teach with the Yongxing Education Group. I am from Wisconsin United States but I have lived in Texas for over 13 years teaching grades 2, 3 and 4. I am extremely nervous yet excited about the opportunity to teach abroad and look forward to meeting and connecting with other expats traveling to this part of the world.

 Same campus(I believe) & company but I'll be at the high school. I visited the campus and the apartments available last weekend. The administration and staff will take care of you. You will pay ¥300 to get to Fuyang from Hangzhou(+/-¥50 -depending on arrival destination)by the taxi or ¥400 by black taxi. You will have go through the process: a group of foreigners being lugged around the city by a staff member setting up bank accounts, mobiles and provincial/city paperwork. Check your documents. Just advice. You are an adult who can make your own decisions but I would not set foot in China without a FEC and Z visa. You will hear,"whygwahren" . Those are fighting words so be ready to box. Overall, you'll be okay, probably.

Waiguoren is not a fighting word, it means foreigner, hardly a word to fight over. Also, Yongxing has 2 different campuses, one in Fuyang proper while the other is in the middle of butt fuck nowhere.

Ha haha.Seriously, oh man, I guessed I shouldn't have smacked Miss Hong's 3rd grade class, the old lady at the grocery or the disabled man at the bus stop. Geez! I'm such a mo.

True, but I do remember eating lunch with a few of the elementary teachers out in BFNW. So, who knows?
