By joining Volunteer Program China you can get involved in making a difference to the lives of local children! We work with a wonderful non profit organisation, which supports the development of blind and visually impaired orphans in Beijing.
Learn Mandarin in China. Choose from Beijing or Shanghai. Beginners or those looking to improve their Mandarin will learn at an accelerated level whilst immersing in Chinese culture.
Put the effort in ! With everything; your teachers, other interns, your travelling but especially the language. Whilst writing this, I am in my last month of the internship and wish I had put more effort in with the language in the previous few months. Don't let China go past you, it's too easy to just get in from a days work and start watching a film and have a pot noodle. It will fly by so you need to put the hard work in!!
Try EVERYTHING! And go into every adventure with an open mind and be prepared for things to change at the last minute!
I really wanted to learn some Chinese and even though it was just one month it was really worth doing it.
