Experience Chinese culture
Every week you will take part in cultural courses and every month we will have a special group cultural activity so you will explore a variety of modern and ancient traditions in China. In addition, by living with a local family you will also experience daily life in a way that you simply cannot get any other way – being part of a local Chinese community, local eating habits, social activities, street entertainment, the national and local customs of different festivals and much much more. You will taste homemade local cuisine and may even try delicacies that cannot be found in your home country. In addition you will have the opportunity to learn about the cultures of your fellow au pairs who may come from a variety of home nations.
Adjusting to a new environment will help you find out new things about yourself, you will become substantially more independent and mature. By living with the host family and sharing your daily life, you will become more skilled at getting along with people from different cultural backgrounds. In addition, during the process of supporting your host family’s children to learn English, you will learn about different perspectives and strengthen your communication skills too. Helping a child to study English as a second language is sometimes challenging, but it is without a doubt an unmissable and rewarding one.
