The Homestay Program is an extension of the Hanbridge Mandarin Immersion Course. If you opt for our homestay package, you will live with a Chinese family during your study in Shenzhen and gain an intimate view of day-to-day Chinese home life and traditions. Your host family will warmly welcome you, treat you as a family member, and provide you with a private bedroom.

All of our homestay host families have been carefully screened, interviewed and are dedicated to your success. They understand your desire to learn Chinese and will be happy to help you practice Mandarin or to introduce you to Chinese food and culture.
