Stay with teacher

Stay with teacher is very popular because it means that International students or visitors don”t need to stay in a hotel or an expensive apartment when they study or travel in China. They may choose to stay with a local host family at a low cost and furthermore, they are able to improve their knowledge of the language, enjoy family-like comforts, make local friends and experience local culture at first hand through living with a local host family. You are totally welcome to choose the duration of your stay – from a few days to one year – with our Homestay. Hoemstay will bring you an individual way to discover China – one of the most mysterious lands in the world!
