Homestaychina is an organization that offers homestay programs to young foreigners interested in living a few months in China while staying with a Chinese family. Our main mission is to get greater understanding between different cultures by direct contact. We consider homestay to be a very good way to do so as it is not just about living in the country you are interested in, but you can also have a direct contact to people of different generations of that country. China is a country full of exciting things to explore and we think that while living together with local people one can get a deep understanding of how Chinese society works.
We are different from other organizations as we are completely free of charge to the foreign participants. We are working on an exchange ideal which means: the participant gives classes to the child and in return he gets accommodation, food, Chinese classes, visa fees, medical insurance, pocket money and flight reimbursement covered by Homestaychina. We consider this way to be more interesting for the participant instead of paying homestay fees. We have been doing this program for already more than ten years, in Kunming and Guiyang, working on a very small scale so we can still be a very personalized agency.
