Opportunity Education offers British Schools an exciting programme for children to learn about Chinese culture and language. Children explore the art of Chinese calligraphy, Tai Chi and Kung Fu, and are introduced to the Chinese language.

Students have the chance to meet with students from various parts of China, and complete fun activities with them. The programme sparks an interest in Chinese culture, improves their Mandarin, and enables students to make friends from the other side of the world!

What does this involve?

The Chinese student will be on a parallel programme to your children, learning about British culture and language. Each morning the Chinese children learn about British culture and language, whilst UK students learn about Chinese culture and language. In the afternoons the real immersion takes place, whereby various fun activities allow students to speak with and make new friends with their peers.

Become a homestay family

You will have the opportunity to host Chinese students in your home for the duration of the programme.  This will include providing accommodation for the Chinese student(s), breakfast and dinner, to transport the Chinese student along with your child to the school each week day. On weekends you will be expected to drop off and pick up the Chinese student from the school.

The process

Opportunity Education are committed to child safeguarding and will need to visit your home to ensure suitability for our students. An Enhanced DBS check will be required for all adults over the age of 18 in your household, which will be administered and paid for by our team.
