Add Your Brick To The Great Wall

A new eBook about China OUT NOW!

Excuse me if I get a little exited here, but our year’s labour of love has finally ended up with the book being available on Amazon.

Together with Agness and Cez from eTramping, we have finally published our first collaborative ebook!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle either, as Amazon does a PC app too! (UK here and US here)

Add Your Brick to the Great Wall – Experience-based Advice from Expats has information about China in the following categories:

  • Living
  • Working
  • Travelling

So whether you plan to work in China for a while, or just pass through it, there’s lots of information and advice to help you with our pictures to tempt you too! Add Your Brick To The Great Wall

We wanted to write it about our experiences, so that people can take a look and decide if this kind of experience was for them. We stress that you don’t have to do it exactly the way we did it, but we’re just offering some handy tips and tricks for you to follow if you so choose.

  • Living

    – The right city for you
    – How to master the language
    – How to overcome the “shock” of China

  • Working

    – Where to find an English school
    –  Cultural discovery
    – How to go through the visa process

  • Travelling

    – What transport is available
    – Where to find cheap tickets
    – Main highlights of a trip around China

These are only short snippets of what you can find in Add Your Brick To The Great Wall – Experience-based Advice from Expats. I’ve published a few posts on finding jobs in China on my contact page, as well as the top 10 questions that I get asked by potential teachers. There’s much more in the book than can be found on either my site or eTramping, so if you’re really interested then this book is the way forward for you.

We have aimed it at anybody wanting to go to China, not just our peers, as you can teach in China at any age up to around 55 (that’s when the Chinese don’t like giving out visas as freely, sorry!)

We hope you find what you are looking for in Add Your Brick To The Great Wall – remember, if you do purchase it we’d love to hear what you think, either via email or via a review on Amazon itself!

Thanks and enjoy your new read!
