Language Exchange Program - Learn Mandarin and Teach English in China

Date 2013-06-07 09:06:18 Location : Asia:China

Aston offers a special language exchange program to learn Mandarin and teach
English. Teach 10 hours of English lessons per week in our school and we will give you the
same amount of Mandarin lessons. (English lessons range from 20 to 100 minutes in
length.) We might occasionally offer you overtime teaching, for which you will be
paid. Teaching hours are flexible from week to week, with the total being counted at
the end of the month. Any hours in excess will be paid then.
The Language Exchange Project is open to anyone who is interested in Chinese
language and culture. It is perfect for current undergraduates and recent high-school
graduates but we also welcome participants who are older and have life and
professional experience. Participants not only gain teaching experience with us, but
have a unique opportunity to study Chinese in very small classes and to cover in two
months what most students would cover in a year's worth of college classes.
Sample Schedule:
Week 1:
Arrive in Shanghai or Nanjing, one of our staff picks you up at the airport.

Basic Chinese lessons (how to order food, how to ask where things are, etc.)
Dinner out with all of the new students, teachers and Aston staff.
