Teach English Homestay Experience

Save 50% on our standard Homestay Program by teaching English to a Chinese national with LTL.

No teaching experience is needed, just a good grasp of the English language.

This is a fantastic budget option if you really want to experience a Chinese homestay but want to save 50%!

You will be responsible for teaching English to a member of your host family for six hours each week.

That can be after class or at weekends, or a bit of both.

Enjoy all the benefits of a full price homestay, which include glorious home cooked Chinese food, your own bedroom, bills all included and all the exposure to Mandarin you could possibly need in your quest to improve your language skills.

ALL INCLUSIVE – Prices include WiFi, bills, breakfast and dinner. If you’d rather live with a homestay and not teach English, it’s worth checking out our homestay program.

IMPORTANT – Teach English Homestays can be located a little further from school (up to one hour).


Can the host family speak English?

They will know a little English but this will be fairly basic.

They are hoping you can give them a boost in the right direction but this will also help your Mandarin when there are those moments of trying to communicate new words!

Can I wash my clothes at my homestay?

Absolutely. There are laundry facilities which your family will give you access to. 

What’s it actually like living in an LTL Homestay?

Good question!

It’s an experience you’ll absolutely never forget, we know that much. We’ve got a load of excellent reviews from previous students but perhaps the best thing to do is check out a documentary following one of our homestays in China.

Who do I teach?

This is dependant on the family.

Sometimes it’s a younger child, maybe a teenager or young adult wanting to improve their English.

What’s the food like?

So good! Honestly it is!

People worry, especially if you have allergies or don’t eat meat. You can get by absolutely no problem! We’ll let these do the talking.

Is there air-con and heating?

Yes all homestay’s are equipped with air-con and heating so you remain comfortable.

Other Options

  • Social Life
