How do I get to my homestay family from the airport?

Airport pickup and drop off are included in the price. We will be there for you when you arrive, and take you directly to your homestay.

Are there any rules at the homestay I should adhere to?

Our homestays are lovely places to be but of course, general tidiness, politeness, and genuine etiquette around the house are important.

You may help around the house with little chores here and there but just being kind and respectable daily is all that will be asked.

Is there a school uniform for children to wear?

Yes, all Chinese schools have their uniforms.

Can I use a phone at school?

No, this is strictly forbidden during class but before or after any class this is no problem.

If there is any emergency at any stage, the school phones can be used.

If I have problems, who do I talk to?

We are always here to help you!

In addition to your high school, you will be part of the LTL social community here and we organize events, dinners, and trips every week. We will see each other regularly, but if you have a problem, call us or come by our office at any time.

Many issues we will be able to help you solve over a cup of tea in our office, but for anything serious, we of course also offer 24/7 emergency support.

How do I use WhatsApp/Facebook which are banned?

Firstly, you will need a WeChat account when living and studying in China. 

This will be your “WhatsApp in China“. 

For your other apps that are banned, you will need a VPN.
