China

Ni Hao!

China is known for its very old, unique and distinct culture.  It is the world’s most populated country and 3rd largest geographically.  As the country has spanned across thousands of years, they have given us many significant cultural contributions such as the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Army and the Forbidden City, along with many old artefacts, historical sites and unique traditions.

Language RequirementS

Students must have studied at least 160 hours of Mandarin to be eligible for the program, and all students must participate in a 2 week long language and culture camp on arrival in China.

School

All the exchange students will be placed in Senior High Schools which consist of 2 categories: Regular Secondary High Schools and Vocational/Technical Schools. Most students will attend a regular secondary school.

The curriculum for Regular Senior Secondary Schools is divided into statutory subjects and activities, which are all taught in Chinese. Statutory subjects include both compulsory and optional courses. Activities include extra-curriculum activities and field study.

School days in China are long, and students begin school with Physical Exercise at 7:00 am and finish the day at 5:00 pm.  In China, schools have very strict rules for every student on school attendance, dress, hair style, jewellery and behaviour. 

It is very traditional in China that your school teacher will not only pay attention to your school performance, but also your after-school behaviour. Chinese parents trust school teachers as their own child’s second parents, and they will work together on children’s education.

Family

In China, it is very common to have up to 4 generations of family living together under 1 roof.  This can mean that many families could include a father and mother, son or daughter, grandson or daughter and grandparents. YFU host families could be multi-generational or more modern, with only 2 generations living together.  Not all members of the host family will be able to speak English.  

In the past, Chinese families were hierarchical, whereby the wife and children would obey the rules set by the father of the family.  Today, this way of life is not as rigid, and parents try to focus on their children and make sure they can have the best life possible and on building a close relationship with them.
