Q&A Letter For Parents
What We Do
We pair your child with a kid from a respectable family in China so that those kids can eventually become friends and learn each other’s language and culture.
How It Works
45 minutes per session (once every week), 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 touches 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 the mutual interests of the kids
Security: 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 time 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?
