Q&A Letter For Parents
What We Do
We pair your child with a kid from a respectable (carefully screened) family in China, so that they can eventually become friends and learn each other’s language and culture.
How It Works
The time period for your child to communicate with a kid in China is one hour. Half the time will be devoted to speaking in Mandarin, the other half time will be in English.
Topics kids could cover
Mutual interests and talents, cultural arts, customs, current events, hobbies, etc
Tips for The First Online Meeting
Have your child prepare a short introduction about himself/herself. Include hobbies, interests, information about school and studies, pictures and videos of family and friends: these personal touch of life will be fascinating to Chinese kids
How do we choose an appropriate online pal for the American child
Try our best to match mutual interests of the kids
Security: We do strict screening, and we only pick up those trustworthy and friendly families
How to connect with your new ‘Chinese friend’ or ‘online pal’?
We will email you a brief introduction to the Chinese family along with the child’s available times to communicate, so that you and your child can choose the most suitable time slot; then you will meet online using a third party video conference software provided by us.
What about this third party video conference software?
Before Dec 15th: We will send you a conference link, just clicking the link, and follow the instructions to download 'Zoom' the video conferencing software and you could use the link to join the meeting.
After that, sign up in our platform, build up your platform and begin your journey to explore more kids in China.
