Have you ever been interested in taking a group of your students to China? What about hosting a student from top secondary schools for their exchange?
Both of these exchange experiences can be a life changing one for students participating or hosting and a wonderful opportunity to expand cultural understanding.
WLSA offers it's associates and friends the opportunity to host Chinese Students or take a group of students to China or both.
We believe that experiences like these are a crucial part of developing a global perspective and also provide memories that students and faculty won't soon forget.
Host School Testimonials
The Lovett School (Georgia, USA) has been part of the west to east exchange for four years. In 2016 we welcomed eight students and two adults from WLSA Fudan. The students took full advantage of every opportunity we offered, from college visits, to a tour of Atlanta, to participating in classes from kindergarten through high school. The exchange was a great opportunity for our host students and families to build new friendships and develop cross-cultural understanding.
The Lovett School
Being a host was an enriching and rewarding experience. We were delighted with the support WLSA offered us leading up to, during and after the exchange. The visiting students and their host were wonderful and we were delighted to be able to share experiences and learn from each other in this way.
Geelong Grammar School
The WLSA exchange was wonderful. Our students had a great time hosting the Chinese delegation at Harvard-Westlake. All the kids enjoyed their time together. WLSA made the entire experience run smoothly.
Harvard-Westlake School (USA)
Hosting our Chinese guests this winter has been a great pleasure. The WLSA exchange program has been a great opportunity for our Westminster hosts to serve as ambassadors of American culture. Our faculty, students, and host families truly enjoyed meeting our new friends from the Beijing 101 High School. We have gained a better understanding of Chinese people and culture through this exchange program. By hosting their peers from Beijing, our students have extended their perspective of the global community. I was especially amazed by the wonderful interactions between these young people from both schools. Though the two-week program has ended, students from both schools are continuing to exchange thoughts and messages through email and WeChat. This development of friendships is the best part of the exchange experience. Many thanks to the WLSA colleagues for offering this incredible exchange program!
