OUR SCHOOL TRIP PROGRAM
Your China School Trip can be tailored to how you want it in terms of number of students and how long you stay for.
The program can be tailored to your exact requirements. We have created activities aimed at strengthening language skills in order to make afternoon visits even more interactive. These are based on real situations in which students must actually put the language into practice, look for clues, retrieve information and interview people. Learning happens as much outside the classroom as it does inside and our China School Program reflects that.
Each weekday students will enjoy breakfast and take part in four hours of Chinese class. The class time will be split in two, with lunch in between at midday. After classes at 3pm the students will take part in an afternoon activity which will vary by the day and involve exploring different areas of Beijing whether it be the Olympic Park, The Temple of Heaven, or the tranquil scenery surrounding Houhai lake.
On weekends students will take part in various day trips, the most popular being the trip to the famous Great Wall of China.
Sunday will be a day of free time for the students and a chance to re-charge their batteries. On the final Saturday there will be a course evaluation in the morning before you say farewell to LTL and China.
CHOOSE YOUR OPTIONS // CHINA SCHOOL TRIP
As stated, we aim for your School Trip to China to be as flexible as possible. No two programs should ever be the same so we offer flexible options which include the following:
- Length of the Program – The first thing you’ll decide is how long you wish the program to last. anything from 10 days to 21 days is available
- Teacher Accommodation – You can choose whether you, the teacher, stay in single rooms or double rooms
- Challenges – In the afternoon slot on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are free to select the challenges you wish to assign to your students. The aim of the challenges is to allow your students to interact with locals as much as possible, putting into practice what they have already learnt in the classroom.
- Weekend Trip – As with the challenges, the weekend trips are completely up to you. Want to visit the Great Wall? Perfect. Or do you prefer to take a day trip to nearby city Tianjin via the bullet train? It can all be arranged with LTL.
- Additional Teachers – Want more teachers involved? Once again, we can arrange this to whatever suits you and your class best.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does a China School Trip cost?
The China School Trip program is very specialist.
No two classes that visit will have the exact same program and the beauty of it is that it can be tailored exactly how you wish. Due to this costs are highly variable. For a clearer breakdown on how much the School Trip will cost, please contact us.
Can I add further activities to Sunday afternoons?
It is possible to add additional activities on Sundays at an extra charge or change activities during the week, some at no cost while some have additional charges.
Speak to us and we’ll get everything arranged for you or likewise check the tables above for more information.
Are there other similar programs I can look at?
There’s a growing number of programs at LTL which all revolve around learning Chinese but cater to a wide range of audiences.
We also offer a High School in China program where a student joins a Chinese high school but this is more dedicated towards a single student rather than a group which the former are more directed at.
What if it is raining during the afternoon activity?
We plan one “rain day” activity per week which can be organized in case it rains.
However, please note that this is usually only necessary during the rainy season (from middle of June to end of August), as during the rest of the year rain in Beijing is very rare. The weather is generally very predictable in Beijing and follows a similar pattern throughout the seasons.
Can you cater for dietary requirements?
Can I speak to previous teachers who ran these trips?
We can put you in touch with some teachers who have been to China with us before.
