Nice Housing Accommodation

Go Abroad China has a variety of housing options to suit every individual who has selected any of our China study abroad programs. Our best and most popular options include: homestay with a Chinese family, a shared apartment and private apartment. Accommodation is guaranteed based on the duration of your stay in China, and if you wish to extend your period, we can help you arrange longer-term accommodation with a bit of price adjustment. Click and see our housing photo gallery.

Please note that the housing fee will depend on the type of accommdation you have selected, as well as the length of your stay.

Many foreign students have wondered 'how much does it cost to live in China?' Well, if you are one of those people, then a homestay accommodation offers great value for your money! This type of housing is about living with a Chinese host family in their home; it is especially beneficial to those enrolled in the study abroad China programs. Our selected Chinese host families are thoroughly selected; we make sure that they are friendly, they have a good and reliable background, and that they are ready to receive an international visitor.

We also make sure of the following checklist:

The housing is in a safe area
The apartment is close to the applicant's work area
The apartment is conveniently located (near a metro or bus station)
The host family's home is comfortable, clean and up to standard

Our participants will have their own bedroom and furniture: bed, desk & chair, closet/wardrobe, etc. They will have access to the apartment's amenities such as 24-hour water heater, western style toilet, washing machine, television, wifi, air conditioner, etc. At Go Abroad China, we always strive to meet the needs of our clients who study abroad in China, those doing internships and the volunteers to ensure that they are comfortable.


Chinese Lessons & Language Exchange

Candidates can choose to study Chinese in a small group program or in a more personal way through one-on-one tutoring with a private teacher, at night or weekend. We offer different levels and intensities of study: beginner, intermediate and advanced level. For those who have an advanced level, we can offer Chinese business-oriented classes. As for locations, you can have your Chinese classes in Shanghai, Beijing, or any other city you are in!

Our China immersion efforts also include a language exchange that integrates our international participants with our local native speakers and encourages communication between the two parties.


Social and Cultural Activities

To ensure that your experience in China is as fulfilled as possible, we also like to encourage our clients to meet with other fellow participants and make friends. We organize dinners and other types of outings so that our clients have a chance to socialize and enjoy life in the city that they are located in. Click and see our activity photo gallery.

GAC activities calendar varies and below have listed some popular activities:

  • Visit traditional teahouses and learn about Chinese tea ceremonies.
  • Visit the art district and exhibitions and view interesting art pieces both from Chinese and international artists.

My time in China has been extremely rewarding. When I arrived, the culture shock was immense but I quickly settled into Chinese life, thanks to Gina and the GAC team.
