Experience the culture and master the language by participating in one of our Cultural Homestay Programs!
We have an extensive range of connections with local families to give you a truly Chinese experience. All our host families have been interviewed and screened, and all accommodation has been checked by a member of our team to ensure that our interns’ stay is not only safe and comfortable, but memorable too.
Living in with a Chinese family has many benefits, including but not limited to:
– Immersion – Homestays are a truly immersive experience! It doesn’t get much more ‘culturally immersive’ than living in with a real Chinese family, seeing firsthand how Chinese people live and communicate. Chinese people are incredibly welcoming and you’ll quickly become a part of the family.
– Language – homestays are a great way to accelerate your Mandarin. While we always ensure that at least someone in the family speaks English to a reasonable level, living in with a Chinese family is undoubtedly the best way to fast-track your Mandarin learning process. They always say that the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself, right?
– Food Eating with a Chinese family is bound to be a special experience. With both breakfast and dinner will be provided daily, you’ll experience firsthand all the culinary delights that China has to offer. Can’t get much more authentic than that!
