Everyone is here for everyone whether you have language barrier issues, need help at the bank or simply want recommendations for Beijing. Also, we serve free beer at our school Mon-Fri after 5pm!

Life at LTL Beijing

You’ll find our staff approachable every day and that includes your Student Advisor. Our teachers, although hard workers, enjoy joining in with our students for dinner every so often. Everyone has a bond at the centre and this is a crucial reason as to why students always wish to return to LTL. Every week we have two LTL school events, usually one during the week after class that is often dinner, going for drinks or attending a show close by and one on the weekend where we travel a bit farther. In addition, our student community also organize a lot of events together and usually a quick “Who wants to go to the Forbidden City on Sunday at 10am?” in our WeChat school chat group is all it takes to get a group of people together. For all community organized events, we will of course help with the booking tickets, advice on how to get there etc.

You will make potential friends for life either in your class, or at our social events. Feel free to arrange your own events with your new group of friends and share your stories from China and further afield. Of course all events are completely optional so whether you join or wish to do your own thing and that is no problem whatsoever.
