Q & A
  • What's the International Hour about?
    • Life is about learning and sharing, so what's better than learning from fellow expatriates? A dedicated host, a clear structure, interactive games and a thought-provoking topic will keep conversations and ideas flowing - and helps you connect to other people in East Asia and beyond with ease.
  • I'm a local Chinese, can I still join?
    • Of course, input from locals is highly appreciated and adds great value to the debate. English fluency is a prerequisite for all participants.
  • Can I ask newcomer questions about Dongguan here?
    • No, for specific Dongguan questions please reach out to China-based folks in the community directly.
  • So who's coming?
    • People with experience abroad, no matter if in China or elsewhere. Every group is different but usually it's an exciting mix of expats and locals with international background. Digital nomads or ex-expats (returnees) are welcome too.
  • Why isn't this event free?
    • Time is valuable, and events like this should not only be fun but also add value and a learning effect. Preparation, promotion and execution of this program is therefore associated with considerable efforts. Tip: For the lowest price, book your spots as early as possible.

    • ... haven't received a confirmation yet

      Your booking confirmation will be e-mailed immediately after booking. Please also check your spam folder. If it's not in spam either, shoot us an e-mail to team@ixpat.com

    • ... am running late. Can you wait for me?

      Please log into the video chat 5 minutes ahead of the meeting time so you can get involved right from the start. Admitting latecomers into an ongoing session is not always possible.

  • Will we talk at length about China?
    • Not necessarily, it's the International Hour rather than China Hour. Expect to hear stories from all over the world and make interesting contacts beyond Zhōngguó.
  • What if there's no more spots left?
    • For ideal group dynamics the number of participants is limited. Please book as early as possible, because full = full.
