Weekends and Spare Time in China

The cost of our programmes includes 10 basic Chinese lessons and these will be conducted during free time in the evenings. Not only is learning some Chinese incredibly useful, we also feel that it is important in understanding a bit more about Chinese culture.

If you are interested in learning a bit more about Chinese culture we can also arrange the following course for you during your time with us. These courses cost extra but we believe are well worth the money and a must for anyone who is keen to learn a bit more about there host country, or maybe just a new skill!

Calligraphy & Chinese painting 10 classes (2 classes/day) incl. stationery £120
Beijing Opera 5 classes £80
Chinese Ancient Poetry appreciation 10 classes (2 classes/day) £60
Chinese Kongfu 12 classes (3 classes/day) £120
Chinese Tea Arts 10 classes (2 classes/day) £60
Chinese Paper-cutting 8 classes (2 classes/day) £60
Chinese traditional Dough Figure Sculpting 8 classes (2 classes/day) £75
Chinese Folk Music 10 classes (2 classes/day) £60

Weekends are free and, depending on how many volunteers are overseas with you, you are based in the same accommodation which means that you can easily go travelling at weekends. However, you are ideally placed to visit some of China’s most important monuments. Historic Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City and many other interesting sites are only a short commute away. Additionally, The Great Wall of China is only a short bus ride away. If you are interested in taking an organised trip, our partners overseas can arrange the following excursions:

Great Wall, The Ming Tombs
Forbidden City, Wangfujing
Ceremony of Raising the National flag, Great Hall of the People
Summer Royal Palace, Royal Courtyard house
Temple of Heaven, Yonghegong (The Lama Temple)
