Hello everyone, I have recently moved to Shanghai with a job offer, however, I must wait a couple months for the working visa to be processed. Does anybody here have an advice for me on how to find a temporary job (about three months) in Shanghai? I speak fluent English and French, but no Chinese, and am in posession of a Business visa. thanks in advance for your suggestions!!

OK, so I've finally got my hands on Wechat (Weixin) Enterprise. Quite a struggle since I don't know much of Chinese. The only thing I'd usually do there is to post and share updates to followers. But I know that doesn't end right there, does it? What other functionalities (apart from the sharing post and managing followers) Wechat Enterprise has (in general)?

Hello to everyone, I am American, my husband is Italian, we have two boys, the oldest is seven and the youngest is three. I hold a Master's Degree, and there is a possible job for me in Shanghai, which will begin in July 2014. The salary range for the position is 19,000-22,000 RMB per month. My question for all of you is, considering the cost of living is it possible for use to re-locate and live in Shanghai on this salary? We do not exaggerate in our living costs, my husband is a chef and ideally would work at night. We do not like to live luxuriously, just comfortable. My biggest concern is school for the boys. I know International schools are crazy expensive and impossible with the above salary range. My husband and I have begun doing research. Would it be too difficult for our boys to attend a local school which teaches English as a foreign language? Any opinions will be helpful! Thank you.

I hope that I am posting this in the correct forum and the correct category. It could possibly have come under 'entertainment' or 'sport and leisure' or families and kids, and I have used general as a 'catch all' I am hoping that this posting will be seen by a mixture of expats and also local chinese users, who can advise on their opinions I was wondering how best to advertise holiday rental properties to the chinese market - In the UK and in parts of Europe, people tend to use standard sites such as holiday rentals when looking for properties, the Scandinavians have their own sites that they use and so do the Americans (North and South) using vacation rentals. With China being such an emerging market, I was wondering where the chinese would look and would they be specific sites written only in local language, or would English be used? The Europeans are used to booking properties through a site and arranaging all of their travel independantly. Is this sort of thing what the chinese market would expect, or would they prefer a package with everything included. Thank you for any advice and guidance.
