I'm try to come over to Changsha to study language in Hunan university,but the agent is telling me that,they are on strike and I have not gotten the visa. What is my next step.

Tom,

Cost of living here will depend, more than anything, on two factors; rent and activities. I live in the outskirts of Changsha and have a wife and two children. We rent a beautiful 1400 sq foot apartment for 3500 yuan per month. We spend about 2,500 yuan per month eating out, and maybe 800 per month in grocery bills. Altogether we probably spend about $1000 USD per month and we live very comfortably. Hope this helps!
