Zoe Liang - Panda Buddy - Teaching in China

By Zoe Liang

Hi friends!

Last week we released our first issue of the weekly newsletter, with a purpose to provide you with more insightful information about what it’s like living and working in China.

So far I’ve received some useful feedback, as well as warm and encouraging words from you guys, for which I’m really grateful! 

Things in China are gradually getting back to normal, people are going back to work, businesses are reopening. However, the “normal” today might seem very different from the “normal” we all used to before the pandemic, so let’s take a look at what’s life like after lock-down.

What is POST-PANDEMIC life like? 👀

😷 Despite the fact that a complete lockdown has been lifted in China, it’s still in the coronavirus period. People are no longer restricted to only staying at home, however, strict rules are in place in the workplace, public facilities, malls, etc. to make sure that things are under control.  

🇨🇳 Wuhan was the city that got hit heavily by Coronavirus at the beginning of 2020. If you never heard about Wuhan before the pandemic, you now probably know that it’s one of the most populated big cities in China. Join Matthew for a virtual walk of this city, what it looks like, and how people live there. 

👨 Alistair has been working and living in Beijing for a few years now. After the lockdown, he found himself in a  “new norm” which he’s gradually getting used to. In this article, he recapped his experience in Beijing during and after the lockdown, and also gave a few tips on how to cope if you still find yourself in the midst of a COVID-19 lockdown.
