For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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.

Why do schools not know when their end of term is?

There is a difference between Western schools and Chinese schools. In England, we set up an annual calendar with the beginning and end of each term. In China, students, teachers, and lecturers wait till near the end of each term to find out when the term finishes.

I find this an interesting cultural difference. Any ideas as to what these differences are?
