The students will have their own classroom in China for their SOAR classes as well as other Chinese elective classes. The group will be traveling to Beijing at their own expense and it is $600, teacher expense is covered. There is weekend travel and home stays on the weekend with a host family.
Medical insurance has to be bought to cover any hospitalizations and it is about $20USD. A cheap Chinese cell phone must also be purchased and that is so the students and teacher can stay in touch with each other. It is about $60 per phone and maybe $20 per month for minutes and texting.
The teacher will be responsible for utilities in his/her apartment. The utilties are minimal. It is not like the US.Food in the cafeteria is covered for the teacher, but she/he can grocery shop and cook in the apartment. The climate is very hot and humid through October.
