Imagine all that you can learn and experience by spending a year living and studying in China. Here you will begin to feel that you are a part of one of the most complex societies in the world by living with your host family and attending an academically elite school. You will stay in a typical Chinese home. Sharing meals together and having real man-made steamed bread, dumplings, spring rolls and many other delicious local foods there.

To attend a local high school, uniforms are required and classes are lecture-style, with required courses in Mandarin, the primary dialect spoken in China, as well as math, chemistry and physics. Though the stress of the Chinese student is very heavy, their after-class activities are rich and colorful. Do you want to join the Kong Fu community or the handicraft art community? As you make new friends with your Chinese classmates, you will develop an understanding of today’s Chinese society.

Language Level needed upon arrival: Medium English 1.
Sufficient English as daily communication language; 2. Chinese language study background is welcomed.
