My name is Elaine, I am the Senior Teacher and Director of Recruitment for ABIE (American Baby International English) located in Zhangjiagang city in the Jiangsu Province of China.
Our beautiful city of 1.3 million people is located 45 minutes from Suzhou, 45 minutes from Wuxi, as well as about 2 hours from Shanghai. While by most Chinese standards we are a small city there is loads to do here and nearby. We have a thriving expat community as well as several restaurants and businesses designed to cater to our rapidly expanding numbers. However, if the expat experience isn’t what you’re looking for it is easy to avoid and spend time with locals and become better acquainted with the Chinese people and culture. This is a beautiful city intersected by several rivers with large sprawling parks and an efficient bus system to allow you easy access to nearby metropolitan hubs. A train station is set to be finished in 2019 and it’ll be worth the wait!
I’m happy to help with all areas of visas and arrival information, I have been in Asia personally for nearly three years and am well aware of the nerve racking experience of moving abroad! I’ll be happy to help with the visa process personally as well as any other questions (packing lists, calming parent’s nerves, etc) you may have.
Below you’ll find some additional information about our company and city, if you are interested in having an interview and moving forward please send me the following information as well as any questions you may have!
