Make the most of your year in China

What you can accomplish in one year in China depends on how you spend your time there. Each week, twenty hours are dedicated to teaching, ten hours are spent in the office or in support of student activities, and the remaining time is allotted for collaborative or self-directed pursuits, such as language learning, exploration, and community engagement. This schedule leaves a significant amount of your time open to be used as you see fit. We hope you will choose to use this time in a way that contributes to your personal or professional development  In China, everything revolves around social context; as a newcomer to China, the strong support network that AYC provides will be invaluable in fulfilling your ambitions.


“All we have is now…”

There are nearly endless possibilities for how you could spend a year in China. Above all, we want all of our Educational Ambassadors to be active and outgoing because so much is possible if you just step outside of your comfort zone. In the end, though, your year is your year, and it’s up to you what you do with it. It is the AYC’s hope that this year can help kick start your life with the unforgettable experience of learning and teaching. We strongly believe that everyone should spend time abroad in their lives.
