- Program Description:
Welcome to China – one of the oldest, largest, and most diverse nations on Earth. China’s complex society and rich culture are a sight to behold, and this is your ticket to a comprehensive view. This is not the China you may have imagined in your mind – but it is rich in history and tradition. You’ll live in a rural community to get an authentic experience, see China’s incredible countryside, and make an impact by volunteering in a village school. You’ll also explore important cultural sites, including the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, and the Great Wall. Mandarin is integrated into community service, excursions, and cultural events. It's a unique immersion curriculum. Experienced teachers use class-room time to prepare students to speak Mandarin in everyday situations in China. It is an experience you cannot get sitting in a Mandarin class in school.
