The agency is very upfront and honest about things. If they know something, they will tell you. China might not be a paradise to live, there are a lot of cultural peculiarities, and it is challenging - moving to an Asian country for a year where you don’t have family or close friends. Luckily, Work and Live in China do everything they can to make you comfortable. Good job!
