Affordable homestay living in Beijing

Are you looking for affordable housing in Beijing? Are you a student, have a job, or an internship but don't know where to stay? Do you want to learn what the Chinese daily life consists of? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Homestay might be the right option for you!

Homestays can help you sharpen your language skills and offers a window into a foreign culture. Homestay can also be a cheap alternative to living on your own and saves you the hassle of signing leases and setting up utilities. At B.E.I.T., our program matches travelers with local host families at a very affordable price. Our staff even finds hosts near your work or school so you don't have to commute very far on a daily basis!

At B.E.I.T we offer three different options for Homestay applicants:

Option 1: Conversation Partner (Summer Availability Only)
Tutor a host family for Protected content per week. In return participants are provided with a private room, breakfast & dinner every day. Participants in our Protected content program will also be awarded a bonus upon completion of this program at the price of Protected content per month!

Applicant must be a native English speaker. This option is not recommended for someone working or doing an internship in China as it requires the applicant to spend quality time with his/her host family!

Option 2: Conversation Friend
Tutor a host family for 5 hours per week. This option is ideal for busy participants who want to enjoy a homestay, but don't have much spare time for tutoring. This option is ideal for working professionals, interns, and students! The only requirement for this program a high proficiency in English (Phone Interview Required).

Option 3: Homestay Only
Too busy to tutor? No problem! We can set up a living arrangement with a local family that simply provides the participant with a place to live. No tutoring is required and participants receive a private room. Meals can be provided for an additional fee.
