Hey thanks for your message. It's really hard to find an apartment if you don't speak Chinese.  Ask your coworkers or school for help in this area. We had friends take us to real estate offices to visit apartments but most that we saw did not meet our expectations.  We ended up finding an apartment through a friend. (We moved into her old place). If you look in Xianease magazine you can find this moving service company here in Xian that helps expats. Contact them for help.  YOu'll have to pay but it will erally be worth it since you have to say in a place for a year at a time. (usually you have to pay 6months or 1 year of rent at a time.
