The apartment will be furnished with air conditioner, refrigerator, WIFI, western shower and toilet, bed, desk, closet and other necessary things for living. However, ESL teachers shall provide their own beddings and personal things like towel, etc.

In China the insurance system is different from foreign countries, its very easy and cheap to buy medicines in China, if you are sick we will take you to buy the medicine in the pharmacy, usually its about 20-30 Yuan, very cheap. Usually if the teachers are really sick they will go back home to cure anyway, so the health insurance is not really necessary, hence most of the schools and us do not provide that.
