Many foreign students have wondered 'how much does it cost to live in Shanghai?' 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 GAC, 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.
