Our academy provides students with full room and board. Good quality accommodation and food are taken very seriously and seen as an important factor of good training.
All of our student rooms are bright and roomy, furnished with beds, wardrobes, tables and chairs. An electric fan is provided for summer, a heater blanket and extra blankets are provided for winter. Power sockets in the wall and Internet (cable) access are available in all the rooms.
All the rooms can comfortably accommodate two students. Single rooms with air-conditioner are also available for an extra fee. The academy has 20 student rooms in our building.
All meals are served to satisfy the dietary needs of students. Students enjoy their meals together in the communal dining room. The tables in our dining room are round, with a spinning top in the middle. Three or four plates with different dishes are placed on the round-spinning table for about six students to eat. The academy serves three warm meals a day, seven days a week.
All meals which are served at the academy are cooked in Chinese fashion. Breakfast consists of traditional buns, Chinese oatmeal and eggs. You can supplement this with your own bread spreads (e.g. Nutella or jam), which are available in the supermarket. Lunch and dinner both consist of either rice, steamed buns or local wheat & corn wraps, combined with a wide range of vegetables, eggs and tofu products, as well as chicken, pork and fish.
Noodles, dumplings and other traditional Chinese food are also served regularly. Vegetarians will be catered for.
Note: There is always the option to buy additional food, such as snacks, fruits and drinks, either in the academy's shop, the open market in the nearby village or in the local town - Xinyi.
Our academy celebrates the holidays with big feasts. These holidays are Chinese New Year, dragon-boat festival, mid-autumn festival, and western Christmas .
It is not recommended to drink tapwater in China, since there might be bleaching powder and other chemicals added to it. The academy helps students to order big bottles of mineral water or purified water from the water facility in Maling Shan Park. There are water-boilers in the accommodation building which provide students with warm drinking water 24 hours per day.
Each floor of our academy’s accommodation building is facilitated with western toilets and common washing rooms. Hot showers and free washing machines for students to do their laundry are also provided. Standing bars are placed on the roof of the building for students to hang-dry their clothes.
