Can You Read This? If So, You Can Stay in China for Free!
You may be able to obtain Free lodging in China — if you speak English.
To qualify for this offer, lodgers must speak at least two hours of English a day in return for their keep while their Chinese hosts can learn for free from a resident live-in English teacher. That requirement sounds simple enough.
However, FlyerTalk member skaven says, “Neat idea. However, decent hostels can be found in China for sub $10/night, even in tourist cities like Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. Cool if you want to connect with the locals, but 2 hours of English tutoring to save $10 seems like really low pay.”
With that perspective, this deal may not be as good as it may originally seem…
