Leman, QSI and CDIS are the international schools catering for students holding foreign passports. These are probably the best options. I've heard good things about Lemans and QSI but don't expect them to be fantastic.
Other "international" schools such as Meishi, Beanstalk, Confucius (CISCD), Oxford International or Malvern College are squarely aimed at the Chinese education market, and, my god, there is an strong emphasis on "market" rather than "education". The only other foreign students at these type of schools are likely to be the children of staff. There are conscientious and experienced teachers at all these "Chinese International" schools I think it wouldn't be appropriate for a non-Chinese student as some of the arts, History and English literature are not often provided.
I have been on 5 consecutive Z working visas with the same company. I wish to change my company now but have been told I must leave China for one year before I can obtain a new z-visa. I heard many variations on this particular rule. I've heard that one month leave is enough or six months too. Several times I have heard that the policy has changed.
I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with this. And whether switching to a different visa for a while means I can come back on to a Z later on.
Yeah I went to that Yu's Family Restaurant place. Certainly inventive but I prefer the more robust fare to be found in small backstreet places. Call me a philistine but I find the expensive stuff here far too finicky. "Da rong he" on Zijing Bei lu in the south is pretty good for a more upmarket experience and it has lovely big picture menu if you can't speak Chinese. There is also a chongqing hotpot place on that road nearer the 2nd ring road that is pretty good. Day to day, just walk around outside the centre and from 11am-2pm and 6pm-9pm and eat at the most crowded place.
