'This Is China' is the expert guide for anyone thinking about becoming
a foreign teacher in China. This book gives you tailor-made advice on
what to do before you go – where to find a job, how to get a Z visa and
not an L visa, and how to pare down your luggage without losing the
essentials. 'TIC' shows you how to navigate daily life in China, with
tips on deciphering travel tickets and menus, and advice on using
phones, computers and the postal system. Want to avoid finding a basket
of chickens on your train seat, don't know the difference between
mianzi and kuaizi or confused by any of the oddities of life in China?
This book is for you. The Laowai Dictionary gives you word and language
tips to match every chapter, and real-life phrases you won't find in
any other book. 'TIC' also gives independent advice on China’s must-see
places and less-traveled spots. This is your essential guide to
transforming from a China newbie into a groovy laowai laoshi, a true
foreign expert in the Middle Kingdom.
