Trip Highlights
Kunming Zhong Ying School
The host families are of students who go to school at Kunming Zhong Ying School.
The Kunming School is the Chinese equivalent of a private K-12 institution here in the US, with approximately 1500 students.
All of our homestay arrangements are being organized by Adventures Cross Country.
These students are incredibly excited to host us, in fact they have offered to "arrange some performances when the students visit eg. drone planes, gymnastics, singing, dancing, memorization skills (some of the students have memorized pi to 2000 decimal places using certain memorization techniques) etc."
However, we'll have to organize a presentation ourselves as well . . .
With whom would I stay?
Students who participate in the homestay experience will spend two nights with a Chinese family in the city of Kunming, the capital and largest city in Yunan Province.
Each PAIR of students will stay with one host family with a student of the same gender and approximate age.
You'll eat dinner, hang out, play games, exchange gifts, and enjoy their company.
You'll also travel with them to school in the mornings and get a glimpse of what Chinese school life is like in Kunming.
