Finding an apartment or house in a foreign country will probably seem intimidating at first, especially if you don’t speak the local language and don’t know which neighborhoods you are likely to enjoy the most.

There’s no need to get stressed out! Finding a place to live while teaching English in China sounds scary, but in almost every case the school or teaching program that is hiring you will make finding a home very easy. Often, the school will even provide you an apartment for free (yes, seriously!).
