Chengdu Safari

Is there a better way to learn Mandarin than getting out onto the streets and getting stuck in? The safari is about throwing you into real life situations and seeing how you handle them.

Immersion is what we believe in and the Safari is exactly that. Your Chinese teacher will accompany you to these locations. Your level will be catered for and the Safari is split into three parts which are as follows

Warm up :

  • Explain what you aim to achieve in the lesson. Understand and pick up the vocabulary and sentences you need to succeed.

The Safari :

  • Get out there, get exploring and complete your set mission.

Cool Down :

  • Questions or problems? Need feedback? This is the time to do it as you wind down and see what you did well, and what can be improved on.

NOTE – The Chengdu Safari is a 1-on-1 course upgrade. 

To book this course, you must first choose a program that includes at least 10 hours a week of individual classes.

NOTE – Students are responsible for all purchases made on the Chengdu Safari

This program allows you to mix and mingle with locals at sought after parts of Chengdu. Due to this they’ll always be opportunities to interact with local Chinese.

Yes of course.

We have a program where you can learn Mandarin in Chengdu for six hours a day. 4 of those hours are group classes and 2 of those hours being individual. Get the best of both worlds!

How intense is an intensive course?

Six hours of Chinese a day is a lot, but it’s proven to work when learning Chinese.

We cannot deny there are days where you may feel fatigued and tired but the progress you will see should blow your mind.

Genuinely, there is no faster or better way to get your Chinese ahead.

What is the maximum course length you offer?

The maximum time you can learn Mandarin in Chengdu (in theory) is one year.

However, this can also be extended so in reality, there is no maximum!

Generally it’s between one and three teachers.

At the school itself, the environment was very friendly and relaxed. I enrolled in both group classes and 1-to-1 classes, and all my teachers were friendly and engaging.

My teacher was well prepared and answered all my questions in great detail. She also has a very good sense for my limits. The team was more than friendly and supportive.

I opted for 1 on 1 classes with LTL as I hoped to focus on my individual needs. Each teacher was extremely attentive and curated their courses to fit my learning style.
