A smaller city near Beijing, Shijiazhuang boasts the fascinating Zhengding Ancient Town, whose pagodas and temples are just a short trip from the school campus.
Volunteer as a group of around 10 interns, teaching English to children from surrounding rural villages at this more relaxed camp.
Teach English as a Foreign Language, generally for two-three classes per day. At the Shijiazhuang camp, each class has around 20 students and you’ll typically rotate around multiple classes of students throughout the camp.
You will usually have the assistance of a bilingual teaching assistant or co-teacher, but are required to develop lesson plans and materials yourself.
Each day, the school runs activity sessions for the students, which interns are often welcome to join in. These provide an opportunity to relax and get to know your students in a more relaxed environment.
In the past, this has included a water fight and art classes.
While interns will have some evenings free, most will be dedicated to camp activities such as competitions and games.
Previously this has included a talent show, film night, speaking competition and bonfire party.
