Language Volunteer - Requirements

 

To take part in our Language Volunteer Program you should match the following requirements:

 

  • You should be between 18 and 35 years old

You should be between 18 and 35 years old. If you are older than 35 years you can apply anyway though your chance of beeing accepted would be less. If you are older than 35 years, maybe our Teacher in China or Teacher Intern Program would be a more suitable alternative.

 

  • You should speak English well

As you will usually be teaching English, your English skills should be up to the task. If you are not sure about your English level, just contact us. We will evaluate your English level during the mandatory Skype interview.

 

  • You should be healthy and have a clean criminal record

You should have no dangerous, infectious diseases (e.g. HIV or hepatitis). Additionally you must have a clean criminal record.

 

  • Especially if you would like to stay at a Chinese host family you should be culturally open-minded and fond of spending time with children

Usually a Chinese host family will invite you, so their child can get used to Western manners and has the chance to speak some English after school.
