I enjoyed this experience a lot and it has taught me a lot about chinese culture especially since we got to live with a Chinese family. We got to learn Chinese at Beijing Foreign Studies University and have cultural activities with the company. Everyone was very helpful at the office when we had any problems. The other aupairs old and new ones are all so friendly and we would help each other out when we felt a little bit homesick. I changed a lot since being here and have learned to be independent as well as adapt to this culture and the food. One advice that I would give to the future participants is to be prepared as this culture is significantly different to others and I would do some research before arriving. My favorite memory in Beijing was going to inner Mongolia with my host family and being to spend more time bonding with my host kid.
How can this program be improved?
maybe to know more about the families, speaking to the host kids and seeing the schedule before arriving.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
