Frequently Asked Questions

Can two kids study together?

Yes absolutely they can.

It is possible to have a class for two children together. They also get a 20% discount each.

What kind of technology is needed?

You will need a stable internet connection, webcam, microphone and internet enabled device.

Just as important as a stable network however are a quiet room without distractions, a chair and a desk to sit on for your child during class. Also make that your child’s mobile phone is switched off during class.

For more useful tech advice, visit our page.

What ages is the program for?

We regularly teach Mandarin to kids online from 7 to 18 years of age.

For children younger than seven it depends on the child and their ability to focus. We have had some very successful programs for younger children, but the parents support is very important.

What do I need to do?

Help your child to set things up at the beginning.

Make sure all Bluetooth devices are disconnected as they tend to block the microphone, speakers and camera of many devices.

Make sure your child is properly prepared for class, dressed, has a glass of water ready and is ready on time.

Also check the internet connection before the class and switch of other devices that might slow down your internet, like live movie streaming or downloading large files.

How should my child prepare for an online Chinese class?

The same way it would for a normal face to face class.

Arrive on time, have the study materials ready, a quiet place to sit down without distractions around, sit straight on a proper chair etc. While it is possible to take classes via mobile phone or an iPad, we do not recommend this.

In our experience the best way to study is with a PC and the student sitting on a chair in front of a desk just like it would in front of a home tutor.

Do I need to be around?

For Teenagers: You are always welcome to be there, but you do not have to. Your teacher will conduct the class and you do not need to be present for it. It is important that you tell your child that it has to listen to the teacher’s instructions and there is a working web cam where the teacher can also see your child during class.

For Kids: At the beginning it is important that a parent helps the child to focus and get used to class. As classes progress and we establish a working study routine this might not be necessary anymore, though a guardian should always be at least reachable if needed.

Are there summer camps for kids?

Yes, we have a great summer camp for children in Beijing every year.

The LTL summer camp is designed for children from 7 – 17 years of age. At the same time teenagers can join programs at all our schools all through the year.

To live with a Chinese homestay family and be fully immersed into a Chinese language only environment is a great experience for children. It will also be very beneficial for your child’s Mandarin progress.

How long should a class last?

This depends on the age and situation of each child.

For kids usually a one hour class is what we start with, though with a break this can also be extended.

For teenagers a 1.5-2 hour lesson is the most effective option in our experience as it takes them a while to get into “Chinese learning mode”.

Teachers make classes fun, with little breaks and games and time passes very quickly.

Are there additional fees?

No, there are no additional fees.

Our pricing is always very straight forward and the prices you see above are all you will be paying for.

There are no extra charges for studying on weekends or evenings, no sign up fees, material fees or anything else like this.

How do I sign my child up?

Contact us via the contact button above and let us know what you are looking for.

We will need to know the age of your child, their current Mandarin ability (if any), the aim of the course, the times you are looking for, which time zone you are based and which course option you are interested in.

If you let us know a bit more about your child that also helps us to give advice for course options. Also of course feel free to ask us any questions you might have.

Can I extend the class duration?

Yes, absolutely you can.

If your child has not finished all it’s online classes within the class validity, simply apply for an extension free of charge.

You can extend your child’s classes validity for up to two years without any extra cost.
