Personal comments
We often go go Nanjingxi street, a lof of cafe, bar, resturants. To have lunch, the favourit must be Element Fresh. If you want to see all of Shanghai, you can go to the 87 floor of Jin Mao, great resturant there as well. We usually to to western resturants, but there are a few good chinese as well.

Personal recommendation
A great university, 3 best in China. The experience "living in China" alone is incredible. The teachers are helpful, and are interesting. But I do recommend to live outside dorm, but if you are traveling alone than you should stay at the drom.

In class we spoke english, we just had 3 hours each week learning Chinese. A great way to learn chinese, but if you should understand chinese- you should dedicate a whole year to just study chinese.
