1. Where do I eat on and off campus?
You may partake of meals at our host school in Hangzhou free of charge in exchange for attending the English Corner once a week, usually on Saturday mornings at a local venue and mingling with the students and speaking English with them when you are in the GLV cafeteria. The timing for the English Corner will be intimated to you during the course. If you are unable to fulfil this requirement, meals are charged @ 9 Yuan per meal.

We request you to mingle with the Chinese students during your meals at the school cafeteria. Interacting with the students gives them more contact with Westerners, and allows you to learn more about Chinese people and their rich culture. This experience will stand you in good stead when you start working in China. Please note that the school maintains a strict English-only speaking environment. (FYI: food in GLV is clean with no MSG. The cuisine is Chinese. Three meals are provided from Monday to Friday, and lunch and dinner are served on Saturday and Sunday). Meals are served at specific timings. Cooking in your apartment is not permitted.

2. How much money should I bring with me for the course to pay for living expenses?
During the four-week course you should have about $350 - $700 USD to cover general living expenses, such as food if you don’t like to have meals in GLV and transportation, depending on your spending habits. Currency exchange can be easily done at any local bank. You are on your own on the weekends and will be informed, if there are any activities sponsored by GLV. Trainees can attend these activities for free.

If you have interest, please shoot us an email.

You could find your local consulate’s website through Google by typing in “Consulate General of the People's Republic of China in xxxxx” for example.
