How well qualified are your teachers?

Our teachers make LTL the success we are.

All our teachers hold a University Degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and on top of that they have at least 5 years teaching experience. You have to be the best to work at LTL and it shows in our lessons.

When you come to study Chinese in China you are in the best hands possible.

Where will my classmates be from?

All four corners of the World.

We’ve hosted over 100 different nationalities at LTL and that is only growing. In over a decade of providing Chinese lessons in China we’ve hosted well over 3,500 students.

What are your school facilities like?

Our Chinese language school is modern, tidy and comfortable.

It’s a great environment to learn Chinese in China, and due to our tight knit nature we make everyone feel at home immediately.

We have 17+ classrooms, a kitchen with free tea, coffee and beer and a safe and relaxed place to study Chinese.

Do I have time for lunch?

Yes of course.

In our Beijing centre we order in traditional Chinese food everyday. Just speak to our staff and get yourself signed up. There are also many places locally to eat as well so your are spoilt for choice whether it be local Chinese food or more western options.

Once school is over there are a tonne of things to do in Beijing, even free things!

Can I go travelling after my language program?

Of course you can.

There are lots of interesting places to visit in China as well as great things to do in our school cities. Make sure you discuss an outline of your plans with your student advisor during the booking process to make sure you’ll have enough time on your visa.

What will I study in a lesson?

Every student has different goals aims but ultimately the group class is all about getting your Mandarin ahead as quickly as possible.

Your speaking, reading and writing will improve daily and you can further enhance that by adding on one of our 1 on 1 programs.

Do I still get chances to speak in a group class?

Yes everyone gets the chance to speak.

This is a key reason why class sizes are kept small. Every student will get ample opportunities to speak Mandarin in class. We believe strongly in getting every student talking as early as possible.

You are learning Chinese in China, so you have to make the most of the opportunity and talking Chinese as much as you can, is vital.

How can I benefit from the Intensive course?

An intensive Chinese course in China will enhance your experience here simply for the fact your two hour 1 on 1 tutorials will drill home what you’ve learned in your group class.

In four hours, we will teach you new grammar concepts, new vocabulary and new ways of speaking.

You can then apply all of this on your own with your teacher in the individual classes. There are a load of benefits that come with an Intensive Chinese course in China as you’ll see by clicking the link below.

Should I study Chinese on my phone too?

This is something we really recommend when commuting.

Every little bit of Chinese helps and luckily for you we have a host of apps to recommend. Our favourite Chinese learning apps are featured in our blog. We rate and review them. Included are DuolingoSkritter and Chineasy.

We also offer a discount on signing up for some of these apps. Speak to us in the school and we will confirm the details.

We also have some great Online Chinese Programs to start your off with the basics before you arrive in China and to help keep your Chinese up to scratch when you go home too.c

Do you have Online Group courses also?

We do indeed.

We have a number of online courses which range from individual online classes, an online semester programHSK online courses, and online courses for kids.

You can also study Chinese 24/7 with our new Flexi Class system which is proving super popular thus far also.
