TEACH ENGLISH

    This program is a perfect combination of intensive one-on-one Chinese learning and volunteering opportunities in China. Teaching English means direct contact with local people and gaining a better understanding of Chinese culture. Students can choose to study one-on-one Chinese lessons for 4 hours/day or 6 hours/day with a professional Chinese teacher to have some drills in the Chinese language which they will be using when doing the volunteer work after class. Many students find this is a great program for self-exploration, self-fulfilment and spiritual enhancement. Most of the time, helping others is a way to help ourselves.

    PROJECT

    Volunteers will learn Chinese at Keats School in the morning and do the volunteer work in the evening or during the weekend. Volunteers have to be passionate about English teaching and be patient to correct each learner’s mistake.

    Keats School spends endless efforts to promote language and cultural exchange for people from all over the world. In China, there are a great number of people who are eager to learn English and other foreign languages. Keats Global Initiative for Languages serves as a bridge to link you and Chinese people to build strong and lasting friendship. Through this project, you will be giving FREE English lessons to enthusiastic English learners to help them improve their English in all aspects. The English lessons will be arranged in the evening or during the weekend.

    It has been notable because I have met a lot of people who I met first time last year like me to come back to Keats this year. The teaching has been fantastic. The teachers carefully prepare each lesson. I think this one-on-one approach is really a great way perhaps any way to rapidly increase your level of Chinese and increase your confidence and fluency with the language.

    My name is Sarah Fish. I am 81. I knew very little Chinese when I arrived. How was I going to survive 2 weeks of intensive Chinese? I have to laugh when I think of that now. What a positive experience this has been! I really wish we could be here a little longer. The teachers are extremely encouraging, evaluating first how much someone knows, and then starting from there.

    Sanny | USA

    Chinese Language Course + Volunteer in China

    I have to say it’s tons of fun. I have been here for 2 weeks. Not knowing what it was gonna be like, I was more than surprised it how great it is. The teachers are great, they are understanding. They do language program that suits just you. The location is perfect for China.

    Claudia | Australia

    Chinese Language Course + Volunteer in China

    I’ve been at Keats school and Kunming now for one month doing the one-on-one lessons with two different teachers. I really enjoy it. Both of my teachers are very friendly and patient. They really helped me to improve my Chinese, both of my reading and speaking. I really enjoy Kunming as well. This city is really beautiful and the weather is nice, the air is clean. It’s one of the best cities in China to study Chinese.
