Health: There are some special health considerations for students traveling to China. Respiratory ailments are common and visitors are advised not to drink tap water in China (bottled water, however, is both cheap and readily available). The quality of medical care in China varies, but competent, trained doctors and nurses with a good command of English are available in several international hospitals in Beijing that cater to foreigners. These hospitals charge prices comparable to those in the U.S.

Accommodation: Students will be housed at Hotel rooms which meet the general hotel standard. Our instructors stay together with students in the evenings, and organize activities such as parties, storytelling, and performance during that time. There are a maximum of 10 students per instructor.

Food and Eating Habits: Chinese food on the whole is fresh, well-balanced and healthy. Most meals are served in hotel, although students sometimes also have options for western-style dinners and outside snacks. Students will have lunch outside when they travel.
Restaurants and dining halls usually use salt and MSG in dishes without asking a customer’s preference. If a student is allergic to MSG, do make sure that your Chinese instructor and/or cook knows about it. Street food is generally acceptable, especially if it is cooked at high temperatures. Meat, especially pork, is used in many Chinese dishes, but there are many options for those with dietary restrictions.


What to Bring
Luggage: Bring only what you need. Lightening your load before leaving home will save you from much aggravation and give you more room for souvenirs when you return. Beijing is a modern city, and you can buy almost anything you need if you are willing to search around a bit.
Bring more than one form of photo ID, as well as copies of your passport, visa and student ID.
Toiletries: Most American brands of toothpaste, toothbrushes, soaps, deodorants, shampoos and other toiletries are available at local shopping centers. Organic toiletries are not popular here, so if you prefer them we suggest that you bring them along with you. Sanitary pads are readily available, but tampons are more difficult to come by, so again we suggest you stock up and bring them with you. If you wear contact lenses, bring solution. Saline solution is available for purchase in Beijing, but at much higher prices.
Clothing: Beijing in the summertime is hot and humid from June through August. Bring comfortable, light-weight clothing that is easy to wash and dry, as well as lots of underwear, socks, a raincoat or jacket and two pairs of comfortable shoes for everyday wear. For dress clothes, a day dress, skirt and blouse, or nice slacks and a shirt are more than adequate for any formal occasion.
Money: We suggest that students bring some cash with them, which they can exchange at local banks with the help of their administrator or teacher. However, the easiest means of obtaining funds is with a credit or debit card. ATMs are available at banks throughout Beijing and many restaurants and cafes accept them.


Safety
We are committed to ensuring the safety of our students, and our instructors and program directors know that learning is most effective when students feel safe and attended to. While Beijing is a very safe city, we want to reassure students and parents alike that safety is a priority in our program.

In fact, I think China is very good, probably one of the reasons is that many people right here a long time ago but still do not want to leave
