Good International Schools in Beijing?
My family and I will be in Beijing next year from roughly August through to the New Year. We have an eight-year-old daughter who will be in fourth grade next year and whose Mandarin skills are primitive at best. Can you recommend some good international schools for her? Will the schools be willing to take her for just a half-year?

Filipino girlfriend on work visa in China, to a travel visa to United States.
Paid $150 (US) dollars for my girlfriend to get a travel/tourist visa to the United States. But the Travel Agency is saying that they need an additional ,000 (US) dollars in a travel account in order to 'APPROVE' the visa. Is this normal?

Yes, I've heard about it that before and the more, the better. But in addition to the remains in the bank account, the account statement is also important.
