Would you like a break from your studies and experience life in China? 
Cathay Future Children's Art Center in Tianjin, China (a 30 minute train ride from Beijing)  is offering you a cultural and working experience for six months along with a group of students from other parts of the world!   You would be teaching young children to speak English through simple instructions, flashcards and action rhymes for 5 months of the 6 month programme, while studying basic Mandarin, Chinese culture and getting qualified as a TESOL English teacher (useful even in England!).  You would be working in a modern kindergarten, sleeping in a 2 bed unit en suite apartment and eating 3 meals in a buffet style restaurant and enjoying a good social life with international and Chinese young people.  You would also have two days off a week to explore Tianjin and nearby Beijing and a whole month at the end of the programme, where you can plan your own itinerary with your new friends anywhere in the area! 

It could be a placement, part of a gap year or just time out for the adventure of a lifetime!
