LTL

Our partner school LTL (Live the Language) in Shanghai is located in the heart of the city. From the school it is less than 300 meters to the Shaanxi South Rd. subway stop, where lines 1, 2 and 12 meet and a mere three minute walk to Shanghai’s main bar and nightlife area. With countless restaurants and shops close by, this is very you really can feel the buzz and rhythm of one of this great city. The school itself however feels more like a “home away from home”, with a comfortable rest area, a big lunch table where students and teachers usually eat together, free WIFI, a big sofa and free coffee and tea all day.

Host family

Most students at LTL choose to live in a host family. To guarantee a real immersion environment, there is always just one student per family which means that you will be fully integrated into a real Chinese home. You will of course have your own private room with all the privacy you need, while you sometimes have your own bathroom but in some families will also have to share it with other family members. The highlight of any Chinese families daily life is dinner and you should be prepared to be pampered with a lot of traditional Chinese food if you book meals (half or full board). Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are available and prices already include free WIFI, air-con and all other bills.

Shared Apartment

Shared Apartments are centrally located and usually only about 20 minutes from the school. You will stay in a standard room where you will share a bathroom with your flat mates. The kitchen and living room are always shared and your flat mates will be either students or other young international people who came to China to discover this amazing city. You can also book a Shared Apartment Plus, including a large room with en-suite bathroom.

Studio

If you would like to enjoy more privacy during your time in Shanghai, staying in a private studio would be the best option. The studio is fully equipped with a private bathtoom and kitchen and is located at approximately 15 minutes by bus to school. You will find many shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. The studios are being cleaned once a week.
