Harry, United Kingdom, Work and Live in China
Hello everyone!
The experience in China has been fantastic so far, I like the culture, the people and lots of opportunities to travel. Currently, I am teaching in Xuzhou, it is a very traditional city with beautiful parks and nature. The guys at Work and Live in China provided me with a non-stop support through all the process from visa to apartment rent. Coming here is definitely worth it!

Before I finish my degree
I decided to see the world and experience different cultures, and I thought living in China would be a great way to try that for several reasons: great economy and development, culture, people and salaries. Work and Live in China made it easy to apply and come here, and everything has been great so far. There are a lot of travelling opportunities as well, so come and enjoy!
