Barter Accommodations For Budget-Minded Travelers

Like to travel but don�t have a lot of money? Here�s a new idea for you to consider. A Chinese company,, is offering

budget-minded travelers a unique opportunity to acquire accommodations on a barter basis, when traveling.

It works like this: one will stay with a host family in exchange for providing conversation in English. That is, you will speak in your native language to your hosts for two-hours a day. The objective is to help the hosts achieve proficiency in their desired language. While English is the most in demand, German, Japanese and French, are also highly sought by the Chinese.

Tourboarding facilitates the searching, communication and arranging process. The final details, however, are left to the hosts and travelers for making the actual exchange.
