Language Buddy

Looking for a paid online tutoring opportunity where you can develop your mentoring skills and learn more about the Chinese culture? Become an online English language buddy to enthusiastic children from China!

What is a language buddy?

As a language buddy, you will act as a mentor supporting Chinese children with their English studies. Unlike a formal English tutor, you would not be expected to teach set vocabulary lists or grammar, instead this program focuses on more relaxed, conversational English language practice based around interesting topics and activities.

What are the benefits

Who are we looking for?

The language buddy program is aimed at UK university students and graduates who enjoy tutoring or working with children. It is also intended to provide an insight into our homestay program, with many partner families keen to host homestay participants in 2020/21.

Please note that this is a new, pilot program and still in its early stages. We are therefore particularly looking for those willing to bring additional ideas and share feedback on their experiences. Previous online tutoring experience would be an advantage, but is not essential.
