Your Daily  Life: Living in China

Go Abroad China is here to make your stay in China as memorable as possible, for the right reasons! We want you to feel safe, comfortable and have fun while studying and/or working here. Our team has successfully supported thousands of other students with their stay in China; we’d love to do the same for you!

A Day in the Life

It can be hard to imagine what your time in China will be like without first-hand experience. Here are some examples of what your day would be like for students and Interns.

A Day in the Life of a Student

Depending on your class intensity (standard or intensive) and the university, your typical day will usually include between four to six hours of Chinese classes. You’ll also get homework that can take up to two hours to complete; this usually consists of revision and practicing your Chinese characters.

A typical day for our students is:

  • Start the day at school or university
  • Wander around the city and explore over lunch
  • Take part in cultural classes set to your level of capability
  • Complete homework
  • Enjoy a cultural activity and learn more about China
  • Plan my next activities and spend time with my personal tutor
  • Relax and chill with a host family
A Day in the Life of an Intern

A typical day for our Interns is:

  • Start the day at my intern position
  • Wander around the city and explore over lunch
  • Take part in cultural classes set to your level of capability
  • Enjoy a cultural activity and learn more about China
  • Plan my next activities and spend time with my personal tutor
  • Relax and chill with my classmates before a night on the town

Ensuring your Safety and Comfort

To help you feel at home in China, we have put together a range of services and support systems. To settle you in, we offer an Orientation Program, to ensure you live comfortably, we offer three accommodation/housing options and around the clock support if you should need help at any point throughout your day.

Housing and Accommodation
Getting Out and About
To make sure you hit the ground running, know what to expect of your stay and are prepared for your time in China, we offer you an Orientation Program and Welcome events. These allow you to meet fellow students and/or Interns, introduce you to the program and help you know what your time in China will be like. In your orientation, we’ll cover topics such as studying in China, working in China, housing, transportation, safety, health, where to get help if you need it, and more. You will learn everything you need to know to navigate your time with us. We will continue to work with you throughout your stay to ensure you are comfortable and happy. We will also take you on cultural activities, tours, field trips, social activities and more.
Your biggest decision when you are in China should be about what historical site or activity you should take part in, not about your accommodation! Our housing options have been selected to reflect how the locals live, so you can feel at home. To ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible we have three accommodation options. These are:
  • On campus accommodation in the dormitories
  • A shared private apartment
  • Homestay
We encourage High School students to choose homestay. In this option, you are placed with an established and vetted Chinese family, who have at least one child around your age. This ensures you have someone you can spend time with, who is close to your age. We encourage all our students and Interns to share their accommodation with Chinese people. This allows you to maximize your Chinese studies as they can help you grasp the daily Chinese language faster. ACCOMMODATION
To help you explore your region and get you out and about, Go Abroad China organizes a range of extracurricular and cultural activities. There are hundreds of cultural and historic sites for our team to take you to, giving you the opportunity to familiarize yourself with China. This is also a great way to get to know the other people in our programs, your classmates and our team. Activities are arranged around your study or work program, ensuring you can maximize your time here.

Some of the places you may get to see (depending on the city you are staying in) are:

Four Easy Steps to Learning Chinese in China


Step one: Apply online

Once you have an idea about where, when and for how long you want to learn Chinese in China, complete our online application form to get the ball rolling.


Step two: Assessment

To make sure we know what you want from your Chinese learning experience – why you want to study abroad, what you want to achieve, where and for how long you’d like to stay – we’ll organize a 15 minute Skype interview with you. From this, we can make sure we tailor the right Learn Chinese Package for you. We’ll also know if this is the right program for you. Within two to three days after the interview, the coordinator will be in touch by email to let you know if your application has been successful. If so, we’ll send you a formal offer.


Step three: Confirmation

To confirm your placement in our program, you’ll need to reply to our letter of offer and pay your agreed deposit. Once this has been done, we’ll send you all the documents you need: your contract and all the required documents for your study visa application as well as your pre-departure package. The pre-departure package contains all the information you’ll need regarding your trip including where you’ll stay.


Step Four: Start your Chinese study experience

Once your flights have been booked, let us know your arrival details (date and time, flight number) so that we can organize airport pick-up. We’ll be excited to welcome you to our program in person!

Our support doesn’t end when you arrive. We are as dedicated to ensuring you have around the clock support for the duration of your stay as we do in getting you here. Your journey will include your paid internship, accommodation, language courses, cultural experiences, tours, and networking.
