The Shanghai Community Center is offering a free half-day orientation every Saturday from August 5 to the middle of January. They're calling it Shanghai 123, a workshop to help newbies crack the city, with discussions on common issues and frequently asked questions (like: how do I get healthcare?). The center will also share some tips they've accumulated from running Shanghai 123 over the last 10 years. The orientation is family-focused and provides lunch and childcare for kids 2-12 free of charge. Every Saturday, starts at 9.30am.
