About Program

While China opens up the border and invests huge supports for international students to pursue a study in China, it is a first key step for applicants to learn mandarin for a better competence for these opportunities. For a long-term business and career plan, candidates also need to study mandarin for better preparation with business opportunities with Chinese citizens.
Each week you will see how your Chinese steadily improves as you focus on speaking, listening, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Your progress will be tracked regularly to help you achieve your goals. At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate which documents your new language level.
Our mandarin teaching team is awarded by TCSOL as Quality Mandarin School, authorized as an HSK Test Center, an strategic partner with Online Confucius Institute, and also highly recommended by famous platforms such as GoOverseas, GoAbroad, LanguageInternational, LanguageBooking, Study Travel Magazine, etc.

Yes, I recommend this program


The Wanderlust Culture Home-stay English Teaching Program, spanning five months in China, offered a remarkable cultural exchange experience. Tasked with teaching English to two charming children, I also immersed myself in learning the Chinese language, culture, and lifestyle. The host family, including Mr. Lou, was incredibly welcoming, making me feel like a part of their family.

The program facilitated a true two-way cultural exchange and provided a supportive environment for teaching and learning. Exploring local traditions and cuisine was a highlight, adding to the richness of the experience. However, the program could improve by offering more structured English teaching resources.

Overall, this program is an excellent opportunity for cultural immersion and contributing to the educational journey of young minds. It's a deeply enriching experience that I highly recommend to anyone looking to explore Chinese culture while making a meaningful educational impact.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I tasted black duck eggs and a big frog for the first time in my life 😂 I thought it was chicken.
