Learn about China, and have a family connection on the other side of the world. Share your home and culture with a Chinese exchange student or teacher. Participants all speak English and are eager to learn about American culture and to share their culture with you. The Chinese exchange participants are expected to arrive sometime around September 23, 2010 and depart January 23, 2011. Students attend regular classes at the high schools and lunches are provided. Participants will travel on Columbus Day weekend, the long weekend after Thanksgiving Day, and winter holiday. We also have back-up families for the occasions when host families may be away.
