Program Overview

Program Description:
You’d need a lifetime to see everything China has to offer so it’s best to start early and don’t make any dinner plans, as it’s bound to take a while. In a city over 3000 years old, the past is all around you. Several dynasties made it their capital and have left it with an eclectic mix of style and design, as well as with the famous Terracotta Warriors. Luckily for modern visitors the past lives peacefully with the modern, with the Maoist doctrine happy to make allowances for cappuccinos, ipods and swanky restaurants. Your time at the project will be similarly fun, with songs and games creating a relaxed atmosphere in which to learn. We’ll also include our TEFL certification to help you on your way.

The schools that we work with in and around Xi’an are fairly new and modern schools. They are new school with over 700 students, 50 staff and there are approximately 40-50 students per class. The schools are well resourced and full to bursting of young children desperate to have Western company to practice their English speaking skills with. The facilities at the school extend to multimedia aides, projectors, TVs and there’s even a tea machine for you tea lovers. The students aged between 7-14 at the school attend English classes daily and you will be there to assist the Chinese English teachers with their classes, and, in addition, help the teachers to improve their own English.
Setting Description:
You are ideally located to explore X'ian on the weekends so that you can see the famous sights including The Terracotta Warriors, Chinese Gardens, historic Muslim Quarter, The City Wall, bell tower, drum tower and Pagodas. You may also be able to visit a conservation park and see China's famous Giant Pandas.
