Your Base

After your busy days in the Chinese classrooms we want to make sure you come home to a place where you feel comfortable and safe. All lunches and accommodation will be provided for you during your project by your host school and is included in the programme fee.

For the duration of your orientation you and all the other interns will stay in a hotel in a major Chinese city with breakfast, lunch and dinner all provided. 

You might start your adventure in Beijing, a city which boasts numerous world-famous attractions which will allow you to start exploring the country and local culture straight away!

Tiananmen Square: Surrounded by grand architecture and buzzing with life all day long, Tiananmen Square is the largest public square in the world and is a must-see in Beijing.

The National Stadium: Perhaps better known as The Bird's Nest, the stadium is one of Beijing’s newest landmarks and was an icon of the 2008 Olympic Games.

Forbidden City: Travellers to China are usually spellbound by the palace of the Forbidden City, which survived the cultural revolution reasonably unscathed.

The Great Wall of China: Just an hour away from Beijing lies one of the most famous landmarks in the world!

During your teaching placement, you will be living either on the school grounds or in walking distance from your placement school where you will be teaching. Your accommodation will be basic but also comfortable and traditional and you will share your base with fellow interns so you’re never left alone and you can socialise during your free time.

You will share a room with up to one other intern and there are other communal areas including a kitchen and bathrooms and the majority of the schools have accessible Wi-Fi.  If you wish to be placed with a friend or your partner then we can make sure you will stay together!
