When coming to China you may feel that the pre departure to-do list is longer than your arm!
During that time we’ve picked up a few tips and tricks to make your lives as smooth as possible when you touch down in China.
Using our experience, we’ve put together a survival kit that aims to make your transition as comfortable as possible. Little things you might not think about, or minor tasks that become difficult if you come knowing zero Chinese.
We do ask one thing – Please make sure if you wish to purchase a survival kit, you do it before arriving in China. They are designed for people touching down, and not after a week when some of the services by this time would be redundant.
SURVIVAL KIT STANDARD
NOTE || The below services will vary from city to city and shop to shop. We cannot guarantee all of the below, but will do our best to assist you.
SURVIVAL KIT COMFORT UPGRADE
Contains everything in the standard package along with these extras:
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SURVIVAL KIT – How do I find my driver for the pick-up?
The driver will be waiting at arrivals in time for your arrival with your name card. No need to stress.
SURVIVAL KIT – Should I bring any materials with me for my first day at LTL?
Bring your passport and any notebooks, pens and pencils along but otherwise, just yourself, we provide the rest. Your textbooks will be awaiting you, as will free coffee/tea/water.
CONNECTION KIT – When do I meet my Language Exchange Partner or Ambassador
We’ll arrange a meeting between you not long after you arrive in China.
This can be anything from food, a coffee, drinks etc. The sooner you meet, the sooner you can get chatting and exploring!
CONNECTION KIT – Why are there two people to meet?
The more the merrier. Having more people to get to know opens up more doors to other friends, more day trips, more experiences with locals, more everything, and all these experiences will benefit you and your Chinese studies.
CONNECTION KIT – Who are the two people I will meet?
We research this based on your interests, background, age etc.
Sometimes the people are young students who want to expand their friendship groups, sometimes they are in full time work and want to get to know people from other cultures.
It can really be anyone, but ultimately we work hard to match you with the right person.
