World City Links has a long history of international curriculum and school twinning visits. Since 2001, we have taken more than 1,500 school students both primary and secondary to schools in China and Thailand.
All of our projects involve our students visiting partner schools and learning with students of their same age.
For secondary schools, the normal programme lasts one week and includes at least three days learning and visiting the partner school. The emphasis is placed on sharing lessons and experiences with students of the same age group. This leads to an unforgettable educational and cultural experience as well as friends for life.
Many students take up the learning of Mandarin and carry on communication via email and video conferencing. Students often stay in touch and visit each other long after the visit.
During our programmes, students stay in 5* accommodation in the centre of the host city, within a short walking distance of many of the main tourist sites. On programmes to Beijing, students also have the opportunity to visit the Great Wall.
For primary school students, we have an offer for parents to accompany their children to China and visit the partner schools with them.
