Should we move to Shanghai?1 Replies
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.
