Volunteers in China see a country that's changed much in recent years; it is a country that has become a major player on the world’s stage, both economically and diplomatically. However, many of it’s people are still living in poverty, especially those in the most rural areas. For that reason Lattitude’s placements in China are more vital than ever.


Teaching English to young people can directly affect their ability to work in many professional fields which are vital to the country’s overall development. You will also operate ‘English Corners’, offering enthusiastic students the opportunity to have more informal discussions and to learn about western culture and traditions— which Chinese people are often very interested in.

In return, there will be an excellent opportunity for you to practise your Mandarin Chinese in language lessons that suit your needs. Chinese students enjoy team games and competitions. You may have text books to support you in planning lessons, but you can also use role play, songs and word games help students practise the language they have learnt in other lessons. Volunteers in China are regarded as teachers, not students, and having Lattitude volunteers in their school is considered by students to be an exceptional privilege.
