If you want to give your Chinese an extra boost we recommend you combine your course with one of our amazing Homestay families.

What are you waiting for!


Here are some key details about group classes in Singapore with LTL.

PLEASE NOTE | Class size is anything up to 10 students per class. If a class has fewer than 4 students, students can (subject to availability) switch to another class or continue their classes online. In this situation students tend to choose online lessons because the class size is smaller.

Study Mandarin in an international environment and make friends from all over the world. With our Mandarin classes you will learn all areas of Chinese: speaking, reading, writing and listening. To make the most progress you can also add 1 on 1 classes to your group classes to focus on any areas you want to or cement what you learnt in the group classes.

To make sure you’re put in the most suitable class for your level, you will have a language assessment with us before starting your program with us. 

Complete beginners, don’t need to do the assessment but if you have learnt some Chinese before you’ll need to do the assessment. But don’t worry this isn’t like a real test, it’s just to help us get an accurate understanding of your Mandarin.

You will just have a brief conversation with our Director of Studies and they will ask you some questions in Mandarin.

We of course want to make sure you’re in the right class for you, so it’s very important to do the assessment. After all you wouldn’t want to be in a Chinese class that is too basic or too advanced for you. 

NOTE – If you are a complete beginner and have never studied any Mandarin before you’ll need to begin your course on one of our official starting dates. Those who have learnt some Mandarin before can start on any Monday throughout the year.


Which is best for me, group or 1-on-1 classes?

It’s up to you, really. 

If you have a fair knowledge of Mandarin already we’d recommend going for individual Chinese classes in Singapore as the class can be more tailored towards your needs.

If you are a beginner, groups might be the best way to start off, but honestly, everyone is different. Talk to us and we can find the best solution for you.

Who will my classmates be?

Your classmates could be anyone, we have as much idea as you do!

The beauty of our group classes is the chance of getting paired with someone from any where in the world, of any age and background.

Is the group class format the same across all LTL cities?

Yes, they are.

Book for any city you like (or more than one) and you will experience the same interactive, diverse and fun lessons.

What is a typical group lesson like?

You will cover speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

The week is divided up like this generally…

Mon-Wed-Fri – Speaking & Listening

Tues-Thur – Writing & Reading
