With 5000 years of history on its back, the world’s greatest population and the world’s highest mountain (Mount Everest), China is sure to impress. The country’s geographical and climatic extremes have helped shape the Chinese culture, its customs and its history – in all of which they take immense pride.
Traditional attitudes towards family and food are sure to create a warm and welcoming environment for exchange students. Indeed, family in China is regarded as the basis of society, a guarantee of happiness, prosperity and security.
Experience it for yourself by stepping into the shoes of a Chinese teenager and discover this thriving culture, full of diverse ideas, from the traditional to the modern.
