If you’d like to study Chinese in Shanghai and have the chance to experience the true Chinese way of life on a day-to-day basis and to practise the language you have learnt as much as possible in your free time, then we would recommend staying with one of our carefully selected Chinese Host Families. You will receive breakfast and the evening meal each day and all of the host families are located between 30 and 40 minutes from the school. This is a fantastic opportunity for all students looking for a total immersion experience and the very most out of their stay.
