Cultural Activities

China is recognized as one of the four great ancient civilizations of the world, together with ancient Egypt, Babylon and India. Moreover, China is the only ancient civilization that has continued its traditional customs to this very day.

The long-term continuation of Chinese civilization has benefited from the three great reforms adopted in 1978 as part of its economic development strategy. As a result, today, we find a Chinese culture with a more modern charm taking shape.

As an au pair in China, once a month, you will participate in a scheduled, outdoor Chinese cultural activity, experiencing the most unique characteristics of Chinese culture in your host city. Topics such as Taiji, Traditional Chinese Painting, Calligraphy, and Music are just some of the Chinese cultural activities that you'll be able to enjoy. Au Pairs who participate in the many cultural events get the most out of their educational experience and leave China with a deeper understanding of its customs and traditions.

Learn Mandarin

You will receive four Mandarin classes each week, based on your present Mandarin level. Classes are taught in person by our native Mandarin teachers. You will be supported to progress through more advanced levels as your Mandarin improves. You should end your program with at least basic conversational Mandarin.
