In your quest to learn Mandarin, there will be many circumstances where you will need to be acquainted with Chinese culture and traditions. There’s no better informal setting to understand what values the people hold and what cultural aspects are important to them, than through an interaction with a Chinese family. Through this session, we connect students of Mandarin with a native family allowing them to meet, greet and get to know each other. 

Family, as with many other cultures around the world, has high significance in the Chinese culture. Even Confucius, the famous Chinese philosopher, had advocated care and honour of the family as one of the most important qualities when he spoke about the ‘five major relationships’ for a Chinese individual. In this session, children have the unique opportunity of learning about family structure in a typical Chinese household, and how it is still common for many generations of the family to be living together under the same roof. 

Here’s your chance to exchange a few greetings that you would have learned, with a welcoming family native to China. You will certainly get an insight into their daily lives as well as hear about the common traditions or rituals they follow. Feel free to ask a few questions to your host family, in Mandarin for your chance to practise your speaking skills. 

During this 60-minute interaction with the local Chinese family, students will thoroughly enjoy being in the company of a warm and friendly family. At the end of it, they will soon be at ease to strike a conversation with other Chinese people and at the same time, gain a personal insight into life in China.
