IMPORTANT NOTE – These two programs are upgrades – you must first purchase an individual course with us before being able to upgrade to these programs below. You cannot purchase a Safari or Discover program on its own.

Taiwan Safari

One of the best ways to learn Mandarin is to practice out and about on the streets on Taipei. That is exactly what our Taiwan Safari program will help you with.

Learn how to do all the basic things you’ll need to get around Taiwan, how to buy a train ticket, how to order your favourite foods and drinks, how to bargain for your favourite pair of shoes. There’s no better way to get to grips with the Chinese basics than really immersing yourself and getting out there and practising.

Your Chinese language teacher will accompany you at all times on the Taiwan Safari program. All LTL teachers are experienced and know their way around Taipei. They’ll make sure that your safari program is suitable for your Mandarin level.

Taiwan Safari classes are split into 3 parts:

Warm up – Your LTL teacher will introduce the lesson topic to you, and go through any vocabulary and sentence structures needed.

The Safari – Get out there, explore Taipei and put that Mandarin to the test.

Cool Down – You will review everything you’ve learnt during the safari session.

Please note – Students are responsible for any purchases made on the Taiwan Safari

– Perfect for Chinese Beginners at level A1/A2

– 10 hours of your 1 on 1 will upgraded to Safari per week

– Maximum of 2 weeks course length

– Beginner levels only

Discover Taiwan

Discover Taiwan and at the same time fully immerse yourself into a Mandarin language environment. This study program allows you to visit some of Taipei’s historical and cultural attractions while picking up and practising your language skills with locals in these areas.

Get out there with your teacher, visit some of Taiwan’s favourite spots and learn the lingo as you go. Ask whatever questions you want and your teacher will guide you through the day.

The discover program is great fun and a unique way to learn. Who says learning has to be all textbooks and memorization! Like the Taiwan Safari program, this program is an upgrade for 1-on-1 classes.

If you’d like to book this course, you must initially choose a program which includes at least 20 hours of individual classes per week. You can then upgrade those hours to the Discover Taiwan program.

Will I learn faster in 1-on-1 classes?

Yes, with 1 on 1 Mandarin classes, everything is up to you and your needs.

The pace will be up to you, if you want to progress faster, you can. If you want to learn more speaking than writing (or vice versa), you can.

In a group class the teacher’s attention is spread across several students, and the pace and curriculum are set.

Group lessons seem more social, should I worry?

Just because you are in a 1 on 1 class doesn’t mean you won’t meet people!

To help you meet new friends, students, and locals alike, we offer The LTL Lunch Club and various social events. Don’t worry about the social aspect, the friendships you will build will happen outside the classroom.

Your progress will be quicker with 1 on 1 class, and in the end, this is why you’ve chosen LTL Taiwan. The social life is great whether you do individual or group classes.

Can I learn online before coming to Taiwan?

You sure can – we have a wealth of online Mandarin programs to discover.

These can also be preparation courses before coming to LTL, HSK-specific courses, business-specific courses, or even calligraphy classes.

Where is your school in Taiwan?

A short walk from Xinyi Anhe MTR station:

No. 29, Lane 78, Section 1, Anhe Rd, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106

Do I have one teacher only?

Sometimes, yes. If you have a preference, please let us know and we will take it into account. We will do our utmost to provide what you prefer.

This, however, will be subject to your current ability as well as teacher availability. You can be sure that whether you have one or several teachers you will never cover the same topics twice as all of our teachers communicate between classes.

Is six hours a day not too much?

Six hours can sound like a long time to study, but in our experience you will not feel this way.

We know that people learn differently, and our classes will be set up to be both enjoyable as well as informative. Learning for six hours every day will also see your Chinese ability improve quickly, but of course, it’s a challenge, and, especially early on, there will be a lot to take in!

Do you have any reviews I can read about LTL?

Oh, we do! Loads.

If you Google LTL Taiwan you will see some great words from our Taiwan students.

Otherwise, we also have more reviews on Trustpilot and Facebook.

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.

I love the way teachers go to lunch with students. It’s friendly and social, they are very open to answering questions. Doesn’t feel strange and was really generous and helpful.

– Daniel from the US


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.

– BJ from the US


My teacher was very patient with me and really good. She tailored the lesson to what I wanted and was happy to explain cultural aspects of life also.

– Oliver from Hong Kong


LTL Taipei was a good choice for me. They really know how to teach. I really enjoyed my time here, and I’m actually coming back to study here some more next month. Can’t wait!
