It is much more purse-friendly to study in a mid-sized City. And please also be sure that you can also obtain the same academic goals as those who choose to study in a dense and crowded costly big cities. Further more, it is always a good choice for those who plan to study Mandarin Chinese, as immersion in the fresh folk communities is essential for language learners.

Manage you money

The things in your purse is not the thing you saved, but you made. GMCC won't suggest you passively saving money. We highly recommend you to find ways and opportunities to support yourself. You will find that the life is much easier and more colorful if you lead your life in an active and open way. So, don¡¯t be clinged so much to the costs.


Tips:

1, Try Scholarships

1, Teach English or your native language to local students in local language institutes. Your ESL license is a great merit. And you will find more opportunities in mid-sized cities.

2, Try Au-pair. Many Chinese families would like to have some foreigner accommodated in their homes for the sake of their kids' education, cleaning and such kind of light jobs. In this way, you earned your housing and meals, at the same time, it is a wonderful immersion of language and culture, which is a great reward for Chinese language learners.

3, Be fully ware of yourself and know what you can do to find more beautiful opportunities in the city where you are going to study.
