Marco Polo Culture Exchange Program was established in 2016, contributing to intercultural understanding, encouraging oversea youth to explore Chinese culture and language by living with well-educated Chinese host families in Hangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Nanjing and many other big cities in China.
The famous traveller Marco Polo had lived in China for 17 years before returning home brining with him his experience of the Chinese culture. He was perhaps the first person that inspired the fascination of the European people towards the Oriental and Chinese culture, which continued ever since.
Now for those “Marco Polos” of today, our new member organization has paved a new passage to China that is faster, safer and cheaper! Through living with a Chinese family, young people from overseas are provided a quick access to the Chinese language and culture. Through accompanying Chinese family members in their daily life, young people have the opportunity to grow their experience and knowledge and at the same time showcase their own home culture to Chinese families.
In the past two years, over 200 young people have visited China through the Marco Polo program with more than 500 people inquiring about the project.
All applicants of Marco Polo´s program cannot only experience authentic Chinese life but also gain deeper understanding on Chinese language and culture by taking Mandarin courses and cultural activities. With great responsibility, professional and dedicated service and by offering many activities, MarcoPolo Culture Exchange Program strives to make everyone feel like part of a happy and warm family.
