Study in China! Ancient Land, Modern Outlook…

With 5000 years of history on its back, the world’s greatest population and the world’s longest wall, China is sure to impress. The country’s geographical and climatic extremes have helped shape the Chinese culture, its customs and its history – in all of which they take immense pride. If you want to become a part of this incredible culture, keep on reading to find out what it may be like to study in China as a WEP exchange student!

Traditional attitudes towards family and food are sure to create a warm and welcoming environment for exchange students. Indeed, family in China is regarded as the basis of society, a guarantee of happiness, prosperity and security.

HS-OB-ECClarke-AU-1113-scorpion-OBreakfast is normally between 6-7am and is traditional Baozi (steamed dumplings). Lunch is then had at school/work around 12 and dinner is usually at 7pm. Foods vary depending on the area of China you are in. However you can expect to be eating noodles, rice, meat and vegetables. Meal times are sharing times and most dishes are shared from the dinner table when eating with the host family. It is traditional to wait for the eldest gentleman at the table to start eating before you help yourself.

Ready to try something new? How does ‘chicken feet’ sound? Many daily meals in China may seem strange to Australian exchange students  and most of the foods have bones.  Students will learn how to spit bones in the first month. Generally there isn’t any cheese, butter or yogurt in either the school canteen or host family home.

Experience it for yourself by stepping into the shoes of a Chinese teenager and discover this thriving culture, full of diverse ideas, from the traditional to the modern.
