Will there be opportunities to learn or improve my Mandarin Chinese during the teaching program?

    Yes, many schools in China offer Chinese language courses for foreigners, in which you can take at your spare time. Some schools may offer you free lessons or tutoring services at a discounted price. You can also find a private tutor or share one with other foreign teachers. Private tutor may ask for between RMB 30-40 an hour. We find the best way to learn Mandarin and the Chinese culture is to find a local Chinese student or teacher as a language exchange partner. Many Chinese students and teachers are eager to teach you Mandarin in exchange for your help in English.
