Hi ChinesePod Team & Chinese language learners ,

I have been a fan of this site for some time and particularly enjoy the entertaining content you post on your YouTube channel. You have really helped me in improving my Mandarin ability!

I have just written an eBook about my time spent in China which covers tips for learning Mandarin, my experience in China and the initial cultural shocks I came across.The main things I was not aware of include differences in dinner table etiquette, no queuing system and crazy traffic (I’m looking at all you e-bike hooligans out there!) What were the main cultural shocks you came across when you first arrived in China?

If you want to hear more about my experience in China, please see a link to my eBook Moving to China: Basic Survival Guide below:
