Teach English in China on a homestay programme
Teach English in China on a homestay programme

A career break teaching English with a difference!

This special Homestay programme means you will immerse yourself in Chinese cultural life, while tutoring a child. Because this is a home tutoring placement, it is unusual in that it mainly takes place in Chinese school holidays (although term-time placements are also available).

You will be required to tutor for 15 hours per week, after school and/or at weekends. If your placement is in term time, you will tutor for only 5 hours per week and spend the other 10 hours in language and cultural volunteering.

You will get to know your host family (who is carefully screened) and fellow participants, and have time to travel and explore the region.

You must be fluent in English but do not need a degree or TEFL qualification. You will get food, accommodation and a monthly allowance. Placements are for 1, 2 or 3 months.

This is a very rare opportunity to teach English on a one-to-one basis, and to have an immersive experience where you will really get to understand China in a unique way.
