Students are given the opportunity to travel to China and teach English in a summer camp in Dongguan City, China, 50 miles from Hong Kong. Participants will work with elementary to college-aged Chinese children to develop their English language skills while earning up to five UNI credits. The program also includes a stipend, additional travel opportunities, $1,300 towards airfare, a free room, 3 meals daily, health insurance, bottled water, and Skype $ credit. Classes range in size from 10-25 students. The UNI students are expected to teach for a maximum of 25-30 hours per week. Each year, 18-30 UNI students are selected for the program. Applications are accepted on the "first come - first served basis".
Students also spend a few days touring in both Beijing and Hong Kong, giving them a true cultural experience. See the Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven, visit Yin Ping Shan Mouth Peak and the Summer Palace at the Kunming Lake, and walk the Great Wall!
