For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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

Changchun Friends

a great way to get involved

Two interesting articles today. One about a BBC programme that follows 5 Chinese teachers who teach in an English school for a month and both their and the students experience. The second article is more about what should education be about and looking at the two systems. Kind of interesting

Could You imagine Summerhill in China? Me not! How to learn Chinese characters without an authority (teacher) who does not accept any opposition? Well, this way people learn to obey authorities from earliest age!
