As a rule, Shanghai teaching jobs provide the hired specialist with free housing or offer a fixed monthly allowance (around $430). Our agency is there to help you choose the place you like and rent it before the arrival so that you wouldn’t have to look for a temporary place or book a hotel room.

It may be useful if your flatmate has lived in the city for some time and already knows ins and outs of how things work.
