LTL Homestay Accommodation
All our homestay’s in China are carefully selected so that your stay is as comfortable as possible.
Apartments are modern and well kept. You will have your own private bedroom and sometimes a private bathroom (otherwise shared).
NOTE – You will have access to all facilities at the homestay such as air-conditioning, washing machine, WiFi and kitchen utensils.
Two Types of Homestay
You will have the opportunity to choose from two types of homestay:
- STANDARD HOMESTAY – Our most popular program. Our standard homestays include everything mentioned such as breakfast and dinner, are located nearby LTL Beihai, and will help you enjoy a 24/7 Mandarin experience.
- TEACH ENGLISH HOMESTAY – This program in effect is the same as the above except for two caveats:
- The price is 50% cheaper
- In return for a cheaper price you will teach English to a family member of the host family, totalling 6 hours per week
Don’t worry though, if you are NOT a native English speaker, THAT IS OK. We do not expect perfect English speakers, TEFL certificates or the like.
This is a friendly chance to teach a Chinese person some English. You can split the 6 hours however you wish, agree a schedule with your host family.
The family member could be a child, a teenager or an adult, this will depend on the family.
There is no need to prepare materials either, the host family will have everything ready, it is NOT A FORMAL lesson. This could involve basic conversation, games, media or whatever the host family please.
Otherwise, everything else about the two homestays is the same.
