Do you still remember the first time you came to China? You might be embarrassed for knowing shockingly little about the country and its culture. For the expats who has lived in China for a period of time, what advice you'd like to offer new arrivals? So they can avoid the negatives of culture shock and just experience the good – after all the whole point of travelling is to experience the new! What do you wish you had been told on your first day in China?

I think you can make some friends with some native speakers that speak English as well through the Internet before you come to China.  this might be the most effective way for a foreigner to melt into the country, moreover your friends can also benefit from it, for you can learn from each other conveniently

Yeah, it's better to find your "guide" in advance. And when others stare at you, don't be afraid, just give them a smile. Then you'll feel more comfortable.
