Chengde City High School – Quick Facts

Chengde – What is the City like?

Chengde is all about real and proper Chinese Immersion.

Far smaller than Beijing and Shanghai and home to the most standard Mandarin spoken in the whole of China. A beautiful city which lies roughly 3 hours north of Beijing by car, based in Hebei province.

In Chengde you will experience real Chinese culture. People dancing in groups at local parks, playing cards on the street and sharing a food and drink together on their tiny stools. This is what China is all about.

No big skyscrapers but endless beauty whilst is topped by the Chengde Summer Mountain Resort where you could hike and explore the scenery for days on end!

Chengde is where you want to be if you want to increase you Mandarin level as fast as possible due to the fact little to no English is spoke throughout the whole city.

The pace of life is slower compared to China’s big hitters. The environment and air is therefore also more desirable with surrounding mountains, winter skiing and summer hikes.

High School in Chengde – Key Information

All classes are taught in Chinese. This is the same for all Chinese high schools.

Chengde is a completely immersive destination, so this is very different to for example Shanghai or Beijing. There will be barely any other foreign students at the school and in fact almost no other foreigners at all in the city.

In a city like Shanghai people will be much more accustomed to western traditions. Chengde will definitely be quite a culture shock

The aim there is to immerse students completely into Chinese culture and to avoid having foreign students hanging out together.

Before going to Chengde we strongly recommend taking part in a language preparation month to give them a head-start with Chinese. Speak to us for more details about this.

All Chinese classes with LTL in Chengde are taught 1-on-1 for maximum exposure.
