Expat Accommodation in China
One of the most important aspects to consider when you live in China is finding the perfect home for you and your family. But these come with a hefty price.

Local Language Course
Living in China demands knowing at least basic Chinese expressions to facilitate your immersion with the locals and interaction with them. This is particularly true if you’re assigned in provinces which have lesser expat population and hence, less people who know how to speak English. It would not be surprising if the city where you live will also speak another dialect, aside from Mandarin. There are also specialized language sessions like learning business practices in Mandarin to hone both your language and professional skills. Asia Expat Guide has some of the best native speakers to help you in these aspects…

Lacking on other expats’ recommendation and experience, you might be confused with the different educational systems being offered by different schools. We at Asia Expat Guide can help you identify the most appropriate school for your child needs and even assist in offering extra-curricular courses like sports, music and arts.
