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?

    • As this target product is sold to America, so yes we need foreigners only.
    • I have a motorbike, I bought it from a foreign friend. The motorbike has a Hangzhou licence plate, is insured and has a year inspection pass. I have it for riding in legal areas such as Yuhang, Liangzhu and Linan. So why can I not 过户 (change the official owner of the bike to myself)? I just keep being told "You can't do it you're a foreigner, foreigners can't own motorbikes". When I point out that the owner of the bike is currently a foreigner they say "It was ok last year, but you can't do it now, new law". So my question is just why? I don't think Hangzhou had an epidemic of foreign motorcyclists previously. Why create this big "f*ck you" law against foreigners? It puts you in an awkward position, most of my foreign friends register their motorbikes under their girlfriends name. Meaning since they are legally the owner they could just report it stolen or sell it if you break up. If you don't have a Chinese gf that can help the only other way of doing it is to buy a new bike and the owner of the bike shop will register the bike in his name. Meaning you gotta trust the owner of your local bike shop hard.
    • Actually, the guy has the right idea, even though the posting is dated. It is always a good idea to follow up on subject /career oriented positions archives occasionally. Never know if there's an opening. They may want to contact person.directly instead of dead post.
    • Does he still make you first share it in your moments? I thought that was so annoying so I didn't enter it. The morehangzhou group isn't bad either. A bit of advertising but not bad.
