I'll have to see where I can find some basic Shanghainese. I was going to try to learn a few Mandarin phrases before hand so you saved me the trouble.

I'll also be very careful crossing streets since apparently nearly running people over is the norm!

My contract is for one year and then I plan on finding an English teaching job elsewhere for another yr or 2. I figure I can do that for a few years before I come back and settle down.
