Coming to China to study Chinese was something that I have always wanted to do, but didn't expect to be able to afford for a long time. There are a lot of different programs I found for teaching english, but nobody that I met who had come to China with those programs really learned how to speak the language because they live with other foreigners, and only speak english when teaching. Homestay China allows me to be immersed in the the culture and the language constantly, so even though I speak english with the children I teach, I am constantly learning Chinese as well. I love my host family, and because they opened their home to me I have learned the Chinese culture firsthand as part of their family. The Homestay China staff have been great to orient us as we transition to a Chinese lifestyle, teaching language skills to use for day-to-day needs, helping us understand the customs of our host families, and assisting with visas and required paperwork to live and travel in China. Homestay China has provided me with a great experience that has opened my understanding of the Chinese people, their language, and their culture. Though moving to a foreign country is a very difficult experience, I have no regrets about my choice to participate in the Homestay China program. In fact, I am extremely grateful for it. Brady
