As a company focusing on culture & language exchange programs Homestay China was founded in 2003. With a lot support from the "Robert Bosch Foundation" the company was able to develop a cultural exchange project between "Yunnan Provincial People's Radio Station" and the German radio station "Radio Jojo". Through this project Homestay China broadcasted Chinese radio programs to Germany and vice versa. Creating a connection between Chinese and German children was the first step to become a company devoted to creating international exchange programs.
Homestay China creates a model which is devoted to promoting cross-cultural awareness through "Homestay - Language & Culture Exchange - Programs". For a long time, we have been introducing the Chinese culture and language to young people from all around the world. Additionally we open the gates for Chinese families to a world full of cultural diversity.
In a world of immediate connection to other people, wesometimes forget the relevance of daily face-to-face interaction. Homestay China believes that by granting people to live and study side-by-side with people in another country, we can increase intercultural awareness and global understanding.
Every participant in our program – no matter if they are students, families or young people interested in a foreign culture – have the chance to become part of a global community and gain deeper knowledge of the world's rich cultural diversity. It is our goal to build cross-cultural understanding and provide people with the opportunity to learn new languages.
