WHAT IS IT LIKE IN CHINA?
Learn more about the cities, our schools and the types of accommodation you can get in Beijing or Shanghai.
The City of Beijing
Beijing has the oldest metro system in China (opened in 1969) with 17 lines and an extensive bus system that run to all corners of the city. Both transports are easy to use and quite cheap.
Beijing food is generally salty and a bit oily. The Peking Duck is probably its most famous dish. Also to try are the Beijing pancakes, sugar-coated haws and Rolling Donkeys (glutinous rice balls).
The summers in Beijing are generally pretty hot and dry, with temperatures rarely dropping below 30°C. And summer is so hot that there is a risk of occasional quick rainstorm in the afternoons.
Our School in Beijing
Our Beijing school is just 10 minutes from Dongzhimen metro station in the centre of the city’s most vibrant expat areas.
Our classrooms are fully equipped with computers, whiteboards, and WIFI access. They have been designed to be bright and welcoming to induce learning.

Our main hall area is a great space for socializing, studying and cultural activities. There is also an unlimited supply of tea, coffee, and water for campers and parents.
The City of Shanghai
Get around easily in Shanghai by metro or bus. The metro system has colour-coded lines and directions in English and Chinese. The buses run 24 hours and go to every corner of the city.
Shanghainese food is generally sweet; the city consumes the most sugar in China! Make sure you take the time to try the city’s signature xiaolong bao, huntun and shengjian dumplings.
As Shanghai has a sub-tropical climate, it is hot and humid in the summer. Be prepared for rain as well as sunshine! Be prepared for occasional high winds and torrential downpours.
