It covered more than26,000 expatriates from countries and regions including Chinese mainland, Hong Kong,Taiwan, France, the U.K., the U.S., Australia, India and Indonesia.

Meanwhile, 80 percent of the foreign children living in Chinesemainland can communicate in the local language, far above the global average of 59percent.

Nearly 50 percent of foreign parents in Chinese mainlandconsider adapting to new schools the biggest challenge for their kids, while homesicknessand the language barrier ranked second and third.
