Cultural Exchange to China

In exchange you will learn about China and be provided with free roundway flights, insurance, Mandarin classes, training and full-board accommodation. This is a great opportunity to experience China from the perspective of a local family rather than as a tourist. We still have families looking to host someone this summer but you will need to apply by the end of May.
