Second Message - Szechuan

I'm going to be teaching English in China.

I'm very excited about this.

The planning is already snowballing into a Major Affair.

I'll be in Shijiazhuang, Hebei--the city formerly known as Szechuan before the method of transliterating was changed. I have nothing against insisting that one's placenames actually be pronounced correctly, but oh how I long for these places to be spelled as once they were spelled. I can remember Szechuan. But Shijiazhuang is tongue tying my brain. I'm sure it will come to me soon.

If people have suggestions, information, or help, about teaching English in China, it will be appreciated
