Hello everyone! I moved here the 6th of this month and would love to make some more English-speaking friends.

Hello. . I am moving to Yiwu City in Feb 2018.

Can someone tell me if there are many ways to meet foreigners to hang out with English speaking in Jinan?   I am considering a job in the next city called Taian.

How do you like Jinan. I'm moving there in a few weeks.

Me too

I’ll be moving there in about 3 weeks.

Hope your transition went well. All settled? Me neither:)


I haven’t moved yet, I should fly in about the 14th. I am getting excited now, it’ll be my birthday on the 15th, so being in Jinan will be a totally different way of celebrating my birthday.

How long have you been in China?

Moving to Jinan sometime in April from England.

Anyone here still living in Jinan? I'm moving to Jinan from the UK at the end of April and it would be great to meet up :)

Hi, I am Kevin and just joined this web...I am from Hong Kong and will be in Jinan to work as trainee with a property development company from April till October.

I would like to meet someone new aside from work. See if you/ anyone seeing this are interested to meet up and explore the city together!

I've been in Jinan now for 2 months. I just love it here. I know how scary it can be to move to a strange place. My fears were false & unfounded. All of the things I worried about have not been a problem. Of course, many people have helped me get settled into my new home in Jinan. I'd be happy to repay their kindness to me by helping you get settled into your new home too.

Feel free to contact me on WeChat. My ID is CWA627. That is the best way to contact me. I don't check my Gmail very often nor the expat.com website. WeChat is used by everyone, everywhere in China. if you don't have WeChat, download it soon.

As you're getting packed & prepared, just breathe. Everything is going to be OK. It's been wonderful for me. I'm sure it will be for you too!

By the way, although I am an American, I was born in the UK... Brize Norton.

Settled in. Jinan has been great for me. Hope your experience has been awesome. HMU if you'd like to speak to someone in English for a change:)

I moved to Jinan from Miami like a month ago. What are the best places to meet foreigners?

Thank you. 😊

Hi, I'm Chris from Canada. I'll be in Jinan for a month, if anyone feel like hanging out.


I know this is an old thread, but I have just landed in Jinan. Im looking to meet any English speaking people for socialising and general hints and tips, I don't want to tread on toes within certain traditions etc etc.
If there is anyone that would like to get in touch please do.

Hope to hear from people soon
