Confidence, self assurance and experience is something that HappyBirds take home from their year in China. Their positive experiences have stayed with them long after the Programme has finished. They have achieved this by living in another culture and confronting new challenges every day. HappyBirds interact daily with their host families and as a result great improving their communication skills. Spending the year making decisions independently, traveling to new places, meeting new people and making new friends all contribute to personal growth.

Responsibilities in exchange for your benefits…

The host family will depends on you to take the responsibility to educate children and add value, all of you will rely on each other to make this a truly happy inter-cultural experience. What can you expect from being an HappyBirds? Make no mistake – being an HappyBird is not easy! You need to be prepared to take on certain daily household tasks, involving on average 5-6 hours each day, 5-6 days a week. You will also need to take responsibility for the family’s children when required, a job which can be challenging at the beginning as the children learn to adapt to someone new.

You will work up to 30 hours per week, with responsibilities ranging from playing with children, taking them to and from school and preparing snacks for them. The main purpose of the position is to develop the English language skills, of those you are coaching, through tutoring and conversation. You will be a role model for the children in your care and they will look up to you for guidance and support.

Families looking to hire an HappyBird want to expose their children to the English language as well as broaden their cultural education. The number one requirement of an HappyBird is have a big love for children. Return HappyBirds will tell you that the best part of the program is the relationship they build with their host children. You may be the one who gets a hug first thing in the morning, sees a child reaching a major milestone such as taking their first steps or be the one who gets the biggest laugh of the day. These moments are special and help to make your year both memorable and rewarding. The bridge of communication you build with your child is also very rewarding. As time goes by, you will see how he/she progresses in her English. You will also have a little helper to help you with your Chinese.

Because the whole program is paid by the host family, you should bring some value add to this family. You will need to show the host family that you are committed to their well-being so that they feel safe and happy in your care. Make sure that you have quality time with the children everyday by allocating a time when you can give them your full attention. During this time do a fun activity with them that they really enjoy (like bake a cake, draw, paint, create something, play outdoors, cycling, go to the park etc.) As you do something fun together everyday they will quickly begin to enjoy your company and you will naturally develop a close and lasting friendship with them. Never make personal phone calls or email your friends when you are alone with the children: this sends out the message to the children that you are not interested in them and they are likely to behave badly as a result!

In the host family, you are one of the family member. You should share some light house work, but requirements are different between families. You are NOT obliged to do all housework, but at least responsible for your own room clean and tidy, as well as make sure all shared facilities, especially the kitchen and bathroom are clean after being used. If possible, you should do some more basic stuff like make beds for children and tutoring for the kids. Some times the family have a nanny for all the house work.

Prepare something typical from your country, for example something that you can show and tell about Sweden, Nordic countries, the school system, European history, Salmon, Ski, reindeer, Christmas, and etc. Also prepare some educational toys, for example chess, some game materials, story books as coaching materials.
