Combine Study & Volunteering


Volunteering while Studying

An important aspect of study abroad programs is hands-on work at the site of immersion. While our program mainly evolves and revolves around Mandarin classes in the morning, we also arrange for students to undertake volunteering activities in the community. Volunteer work constitutes of teaching English to students from disadvantaged backgrounds at the non-profit organizations in Kunming. We usually conduct Mandarin classes for 3 hours 45 minutes, every morning, from Monday to Thursday, totalling approximately to 15 hours per week. This leaves the afternoon free for you to participate in volunteer projects. Most of our students undertake volunteering for 2-3 hours in the afternoon for 3-4 days a week.

Language Exchange Sessions with a Chinese Peer

In addition to improving their Chinese skills, students who choose to participate in our language exchange program will get a personal, in-depth understanding of Chinese culture and Kunming's local customs. Most importantly, having a language partner provides students with a fantastic opportunity to make international friends and unlock a whole new world of possibilities for them. Having friends in the local community will not only hone your language skills but will also ensure that you have a fun time, while you are studying abroad.

One-On-One Classes For an Intensive Language Experience

You can also choose the number of hours you want to devote to your Mandarin classes. To supplement your classroom learning in our year-round Mandarin program, you can add extra hours of study. In our one-on-one tutorial program, you will have a qualified and dedicated tutor, who will help you grasp the quirks and nuances of Mandarin more effectively. Once you let us know about your requirements, we will work out a schedule for you.

Other Activities to Combine Studying With

You are free to participate in various cultural activities during the evening. You may undertake cooking classes or Tai-Chi lessons. Though Minds Abroad does not organize these classes, our staff can furnish you with information on these classes. In your spare time, you can go to cafes in downtown Kunming or attend cultural conferences with your fellow volunteers or new friends.You can explore various sites of cultural and historical interest in and around Yunnan over the weekends.

Prices* - You have to pay for your classes and your accommodations. However, volunteering placement is absolutely FREE of cost. We also serve 3 complementary meals on days you will be attending your class.
