This website is for an
English school based in Los Angeles, California
which offers both a physical ("brick and mortar") school as well as online English classes. Both industries are booming at the moment. The owners wish to sell English services to customers from around the globe and not limit themselves to China. And as such the site is being translated into many different languages (at present there are only English and Chinese versions).
This business also offers services ancillary to study trips to the US: help finding a place to stay/live, aid in obtaining a California driver's license, and a few other services as well. In fact, many Chinese parents have it in their mind to purchase a home or property in the US in conjunction with their child's studies. They view it as a way to "save on rent" (they've told me this personally in fact), and as an investment. Others incorrectly assume it is a stepping stone to obtaining a different and/or more permanent immigration status or visa classification in the United States. At any rate, this person give honest advice to both students and their parents.
This site inlcuded an
extensive Paypal payments integration
(you can view the payments page here
). Paypal now accepts Chinese bank cards and performs all the currency conversion for you. When a Chinese parent pays in Renminbi (Chinese Yuan) at Paypal, it is automatically converted into dollars and shows up as such in the website owners Paypal account.
As is the case with most of my sites (and iPhone/Adroid phone apps
as well): this website included
all translation costs
This site also came with two (2) years of
China direct-line ISP hosting in Hong Kong
