Volunteer Work While Study Chinese at Keats

Keats School’s Chinese Language Course Plus Volunteer Work has been a popular program since 2011. Students learn Chinese in China at Keats for 4 hours in the morning and do the volunteer work in the afternoon. Bridie from Australia is one of them. The place where Bridie worked at was Kunming Autism Center for Children. Many students who chose the Chinese Language Course Plus Volunteer Work program have worked here.

On the road when we took Bridie to the Autism Center for the first time, the teacher asked her why she chose this program. Bridie said that she wanted to make the most out of her time when studying Chinese at Keats, and volunteer work could be a great choice. It was very convenient from Keats to the Autism Center. There are many interesting places to visit along the way to the center. The teacher suggested a few places for Bridie to visit after she finished her work at the center.

Once Bridie arrived at the Autism Center, she was soon attracted by the environment and the special decoration. The most important was she saw many cute children. The director at the center warmly introduced the center to Bridie while giving Bridie a tour of the center. Bridie was placed in one of the advanced classes and sat in class as a listener to learn how to help the children. Bridie became more and more interested in the class when she saw the special teaching methods used to teach the children. She can’t wait to get started to work with the lovely children. After class, the teacher gave Bridie a class schedule and asked her to come to the center to help with the children according to the class schedule. In the following weeks, Bridie studied Chinese for 4 hours in morning at Keats, and worked at the Autism Center in the afternoon.

After three weeks of intensive Chinese learning at Keats, Bridie achieved great improvement in her Chinese language. What made her most proud of was her working experience at the Autism Center. Bridie told us that she was happy to choose this program. Bridie liked working with children a lot and she enjoyed the time spending with the children, especially when Bridien could use the Chinese she learned at Keats to communicate with the children.

In the last week of the volunteer work, Bridie was lucky enough to attend the Autism Center’s annual big event for all the teachers and the students. The big event was held in the suburban area of Kunming with beautiful scenery. Bridie came here with her colleagues by car. There were many exciting activities held during the daytime. During the night, Bridie and other teachers and students enjoyed a tasty barbecue and wonderful group dancing. The event made the children feel that they were in a big family, not alone by themselves.

When Bridie left Kunming, she told us she hopes to be back again. We hope Bridie had a great time in Kunming and enjoyed her time working as volunteer at the Autism Center. We welcome more students to choose the volunteer program to contribute their efforts to the people in need.

Kunming’s scenery is very beautiful. It is the best place to study Chinese in China. My favorite learning method at Keats School is one-on-one because it is suitable for everyone. My teacher is very good, very caring, and lovely. My life when learning Chinese in Kunming is very good and the weather is very good. The air is very good. It is good for the elderly’s body.

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 at how great it is. The teachers are great, they are understanding. They do a Chinese language program that suits just you. The location is perfect for learning Chinese in China.

I have been to Keats School to learn Chinese for 4 times now. The reason for coming back to this school is pretty much that the teachers I did work with were very good Chinese teachers. I make it a 5-year plan or even a 10-year plan to come back to this school.  All the teachers have methods of looking at what your skills are. They are aware of at what level you are. I think it is worth for everyone.

My first semester that I studied at another school, and the pressure there was pretty high, the classroom hour was long, and the homework was pretty tedious. Since I came to Keats, I found I have a lot more opportunities to speak in the classroom. My classmates all are fluent and love speaking and participating in the class. We have great classroom dynamic.

I really enjoy this place because we have private Mandarin lessons. I took the 6-hour program, 4 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. Even though it is quite a lot, the teaching is complimentary. This is very helpful because I could review what I did before and learn new things. My 2 teachers are fantastic. We live in the school, so it is convenient. It is interesting to me to meet people from all over the world.

I have 2 teachers, and I do 4 hours a day. So I have got Dong Laoshi and Jin Laoshi. Both of them are very good. They made the experience very nice to me. They are willing to help you whenever, so if you ever have a question here, the teachers are always there to help you whether it is visas, whether it is getting around the city. Everyone wants to talk to you.

I can’t tell you how much I liked it. The thing I liked about the teachers and the teaching method is that there is so much flexibility. The other thing I liked about the teaching is the combination of classic textbook learning and going outside. I loved it! I like getting to know other students. Everybody shared the same goal and that’s making their Chinese better. Kunming is a big city, but it is very safe to live here. Another thing I liked about Keats is the idea that people here help you. I can’t recommend it enough. I think it was a valuable experience. Looking forward to coming back!
