Dear Andrew,

It was such an excitement to hear your plan of teaching English in China that I cannot stop myself from writing to you to recommend the city of Shanghai. Hopefully the brief introduction can bring help to you.

The reason of my recommendation lies in two aspects. On the one hand, it is necessary for people in such a city to master English as they encounter various occasions of using English verbally or literally. Providing professional English courses here can be a wise choice as you will never meet the awkward situation of having no students or making no money. On the other hand, the inclusive environment here makes you feel accepted and comfortable. You can live as a local resident in Shanghai without being treated as a strange one in public.

In conclusion, I would say Shanghai is an advisable choice for you to teach English in China. I am looking forward to welcome you with delicious local cuisine. Feel free to email or text me if you are concerned or still have some questions.

Yours sincerely,
