Hey, there! Guys!
My name is Orchis, I'm a student of Sichuan Agricultural University in Chengdu city, Sichuan province, China.
I opened a bar which is also a cultural exchange center near my university named After-party Camp together with my friends.
Usually we do English corner aiming to help university students who would like to communicate with foreigners in order to practice their spoken English and get a chance to have cultural exchange experience.
We are a group of young people with enthusiasm, creativity and vitality, we have wide interests, you are welcome to join us, exchange your culture with us, have party with us, play board game with us etc. I’m sure that we will learn much about each other and have good days together.
Just send us a email, it doesn’t hurt anything. Trust me, if you are willing to come, you will not only have the chance to feel the real Chengdu, but also make many friends.
Waiting for your email, :)

Well, actually it is quite easy. Basically is to talk and have fun with us.
There are students who are eager to learn English, so we organize English corner for them, so we will need a foreign volunteer to host it. All you need to do is to think of a topic and talk with everyone. Feel free to use PowerPoint or keynote.
We also do movie night, game night and food night ( like Taco night ), so you will have chances to share your favorite movie and food with us. Or teach us to play a game that is popular in your country or region.
If there are students who require private spoken english courses, then we will need you to prepare lessons for them. But don’t worry, this doesn’t happen a lot.
Oh, one more thing.
We will be appreciated if you could help us a little when there are too many customers around.
When there are less than 4 volunteers with us, we will let you stay at a inn next to our bar. Hot water24/7, free WiFi 24/7, independent bathroom. If you can not imagine what it’s like, well it’s kind of a standard hotel room but in a lower configuration. If there are 2 females or 2 males stay with us at the same time, I think that we are probably gonna need you two to share a room.
When there are more than 4 volunteers with us, we will rent an apartment, but this hasn’t happened before. So we will see, then. But don’t worry, i don’t think it will happen.
Well, feel free to do anything you like when you are free, as long as it’s legal.
If you wanna my recommendation, I would say there is a amusement park only 3KMs away, called Floraland.
But if you are not interested in that, I totally get it.
There are other choices for you. Such as Kuan&Zhai Alley, Temple of Marquis, Jinli street, Qingcheng mountain and panda breeding base.
If you are a party person, wow,
I guess you will have much to do in downtown Chengdu.
You can ask for more details in emails.
Look forward to your contacting.

Well, I think a guy or a lady who really wanna come to Mainland China must be really interested in chinese culture and people ( and panda of course LOL). Then I can certainly tell you that you come to a right place.
Chengdu is the capital city of Sichuan province, it enjoys a high position in Mainland China. It is famous all over the world for its culture, history, food, scenic spots and of course your favorite panda. If you join us you will be able to try authentic Sichuan food, see the panda in breeding center, go travel some famous place.
The traffic here is very convenient, the closest metro station is only 2 KMs away, it takes 10 minuets to get there if you call a uber.
About what you could learn here. I don’t know what you expect.
But, like I said,
REAL CHINESE CULTURE
SICHUAN DIALECTS perhaps.
THE WAY TO MAKE AUTHENTIC FOOD.
DIFFERENT VIEWS TO SEE THINGS.
Maybe we will surprise you.
And the students in English corner are from different majors and have wide interests,
chatting with them and sharing your experiences and thoughts,
Maybe will open your mind.
