Living in Shanghai

For the first few weeks – even months – it’s a good idea to carry a street and Metro map around. Shanghai is not a grid, and the sporadic maze of alleys, streets, boulevards and freeways is difficult to navigate, even for the city’s seasoned veterans. Morning and evening rush-hour traffic is characterised by dense, aggressive traffic and frequent gridlock.

How it works

None of our teachers are required to pay any upfront costs, but you will need to be able to pay for your flight to China, as well as have some savings to get you start (excluding accommodation as we’ll sort this for you). Please take a read of our How it works sections for full information.
