From £550
Duration 30 - 90 Days
Placements in Beijing, Tianjin, Chengdu, or Shenzhen, gain tutoring experience & live with a Chinese family, learn Mandarin.

Our Homestay programme offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in Chinese culture and gain a unique insight into life within a Chinese home.

Staying with a carefully screened family for a period of 1, 2 or 3 months during the school holidays, you will spend 15 hours per week giving your host’s child 1-to-1 English tuition in exchange for accommodation and food.

Placements are available year round; the best time to go is during the school holidays in China: July & August or February.

Our host families are extremely welcoming and respectful and they are eager to both learn about their foreign guest’s culture and to teach them about their own. You will be treated as a member of the family and shown around the local area, as well as given the chance to try local foods and learn the language.

We place one applicant per household, however you will be in close contact with other participants and there will be plenty of opportunities to socialise outside of your host family during your free time. Our partners in China are very proactive in organising frequent social activities for participants and they provide round-the-clock support to help deal with any problems.

This immersive experience not only gives you the chance to gain a good understanding of Chinese culture, but also make new friends and explore a fascinating country from a unique perspective!

In order to be considered for our Homestay Programme, you MUST speak native-level English and hold a UK, USA, Australian, New Zealand, Irish, South African, Canadian or EU passport.
