In 2009 InternChina arranged a home stay with a Chinese family in Qingdao for me. It was the best time in my life, homemade Chinese food and practicing Mandarin Chinese outside the classroom.
I've met plenty of like minded people: other foreign students who were interested in learning about the Chinese culture and Chinese people learning about western culture and introducing their country to us.
The Internchina staff was friendly and very helpful, whenever I had some communication problems with my family they Would explain me more about Chinese culture or jump in for me and talk to them directly. I always felt well taken care of!
After this amazing time, I returned in 2011 and stayed another three years in China! Way to go, InternChina!
