The foreign experts shall complete mental preparations before leaving for China . You might 
have visited some views and interests of one or more cities of China in a short period before, 
but the communication with Chinese and the understanding of Chinese culture and custom are 
far from deep. This time, however, you are supposed to live and work with Chinese culture for 
one or more years in a country where the history, culture, tradition and social system are entirely different from those in your country.

2 Material Preparations

The foreign experts generally have thetravelling experience and are aware of what kind of 
luggage and paraphernalia should be carried. Your host institution has prepared excellent living 
and working conditions for you. As is known to all, China is still a developing country. Except 
some big-size and middle-size cities are in preferable conditions, the conditions in remote areas 
are much worse. However, in order to welcome the foreign experts, the host institutions have 
tried their best to ensure a comfortable life and a convenient job environment. It is advised that 
foreign experts be not hypercritical in material requirements.

What is important is that your goal is to work in China . You need to prepare relevant articles 
such as portal personal computer, instruments, and teaching materials if the preparation is not

relationship, the uniform Standard Employment Contract made by the State
