An Immersion and Study Programme enables you to learn Chinese in the most effective way possible, by actually living in a lovely home with a Chinese family. Not only do you have an amazing opportunity to learn or improve your Chinese language, but you also get to do so for free.  Here’s how it works:

1. You are matched with a Chinese family based on your skills, experience and interests

2. Tutor their child and share your culture for up to 30 hours per week  

3.  In return you will receive free accommodation, food, flight reimbursement, monthly pocket money, Chinese language classes and regular social events.
