For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

hi my name is grant armtrong and I am a Canadian native speaker and certified teacher   I have taught in China before at north east normal university and also at a training school.  In addition, I have evaluated and trained Chinese teachers of English in Hei Cheng China.


In Taiwan, I worked as vice-director and then director of a private kindergarten/elementary school with 16 foreign teachers and 16 Chinese teachers of English under my management


I am interested in this positon but my age is 72  and in perfect health  working in private schools does not pose a problem as long as I give the school a letter saying I will provide my own insurance  I have done tis successfully before at the private training center and also north east normal university.   It is more difficult but not impossible, to find employment in the public sector.


please let me know if there is any interest before I putting documents together.  thanks


Dr Grant Armstrong, Ph.D
