To make sure that you get the most out of your stay at LTL Taipei, we offer three different Mandarin courses as outlined below:
Standard Individual Chinese Course – 20 hours of Chinese lessons per week. This can be with one or two teachers, this will depend on your preference and on teacher availability. Lessons will be tailored around you and you decide what you want to learn and at what pace.
Intensive Individual Chinese Course – This includes 30 hours of Mandarin a week which is broken down in 6 hours per day from Monday to Friday. A sure fire way to rapidly enhance your Mandarin ability.
Small Group and Individual Chinese Course – 30 hours of Chinese lessons per week is broken down into 20 hours of small group class and 10 hours individual. 4 hours of group classes per day and 2 hours individual.
No matter which course you chose, we will make sure that you will get the most out of your stay with us in Taipei.
Don’t worry about the social aspect, as even with 1 on 1 classes there will be many opportunities to socialize and make friends after class. Join our lunch club, and our after school activities and you will be sure to make new friends, and explore everything Taipei has to offer.
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 it’s own.
One of the best ways to learn Mandarin is to practise 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
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 teachers 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 an 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 classes, and in the end this is why you’ve chosen LTL Taiwan. The social life is great whether you do individual or group classes.
These can also preparational 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 teacher 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!

What Our Students Say
LTL Taiwan was a good choice for me. I really liked my classes and both my teachers (Eden and Shu) were great. 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!
LTL was super. My teachers Anna and Willy and I studied 4 hours per day with them in Taipei. The teachers were very friendly and adaptive to my needs. For example, I gave them suggestions and new ideas for his methods, and they adapted.
Regarding Ren, she's one of my favourite teachers ever. She's great. We like to talk about all kinds of things. Vocabulary for research, which is great because I'm on a doctorate program and will be doing interviews. We talked about all kinds of stuff.
I really enjoyed my time in the mainland but wanted to try something different so having noticed that LTL opened a branch in Taiwan, I jumped at the chance to join. I really like it, it's a great place to learn Chinese. I'd love to come back to LTL again.
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. I liked that they always started with review of previous day.
The first week my teacher was Jessie. She was the best, probably one of the best teachers I've ever had for any language. The teachers connect to make sure we continue from one to another. At the school itself, the space is a really good.
LTL Taiwan was a good choice for me, I considered going to one of their schools in mainland China, but in the end decided to come to Taipei so that I can learn traditional Chinese characters. It’s my 4th time to come to Taiwan, so I managed to adjust quite well even though i find that daily schedules here vary quite a lot to the Philippines.
I really liked my classes at LTL, both of my teachers (Eden and Shu) were great. They really know how to teach. They both used lots of different books and teaching materials, which were really convenient for me to take home to review and keep learning lots of things.
Each teacher had their own approach, for example Shu told a lot of stories in Mandarin. She’d make me read them and then explain it again in English to her to check that I’d understood. Eden’s approach was a little different, she focused more on business, learning new vocabulary related to specific topics that we covered in the textbook. She also used to make sure that we reviewed everything to check that I’d understood, and if i forgot something we’d always review it again.
I really enjoyed my time at LTL, it was great, and I’m actually coming back to study here some more next month. Can’t wait!
LTL was super. My teachers were Anna and Willy and I studied 4 hours per day with them in Taipei.
Nicolo in Taiwan
The teachers were very friendly and adaptive to my needs. For example, I gave them suggestions and new ideas for methods, and they adapted around that.
One day went to hospital and had to miss class. Willy helped me reschedule with Anna for the Saturday. This was very helpful for me.
I chose Individual classes because didn’t want to study with other students. I wanted to maximize own time. Despite this hanging out with new students was no problem at all.
Everything was good and I’m happy with my time at LTL.
Taipei is a really nice city. The buildings are very modern, clean and orderly. The people are very nice and the quality of life is good 🙂
Amanda travelling Taipei
My teachers were Willy and Ren.
Both are great teachers, very willing to accommodate what I want to study.
I have Willie by myself in mornings and we are going through the HSK 4 book. He gives new stuff to talk about every day.
Regarding Ren, she’s one of my favorite teachers ever. She’s great.
We like to talk about all kinds of things. Vocabulary for research, which is great because I’m on a doctorate program and will be doing interviews.
This is therefore very relevant to me.
We talked about gender equality and all kinds of stuff.
I originally came to LTL in 2015 at the Beijing School. I spent 2 weeks there and a week in Chengde.
Oliver and his Chinese teacher
I really enjoyed my time in the mainland but wanted to try something different so having noticed that LTL opened a branch in Taiwan, I jumped at the chance to join.
I’ve been to Taipei a few times including partaking in an Internship here also. I really like it, it’s a great place to learn Chinese. There are noticeable differences with the mainland but it’s still very good.
The food is awesome too, I’ll miss that a lot!
I have two teachers for my individual classes in Taiwan, Samantha and Francince.
Samantha was my teacher on Tuesday and Thursday. We mainly covered HSK content as I wished. We didn’t quite finish the textbooks, but near enough. On the whole she was very good.
Francince and I covered two levels of Chinese business content. She 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.
Most of the places I took my parents were because of her recommendations so I must thank her for that.
I’d love to come back to LTL again in the future. Thanks a lot
With my teachers Tammy and Shu Laoshi, I liked that they always started with review of previous day. We would have breaks on very scheduled basis, it was very orderly.
Tammy was a bit more free-flowing, would go as long as we wanted. Would have breaks if we wanted. In this regard, it was good to have different styles. Best of both worlds.
Before starting at LTL, I wasn’t advanced, but I knew a lot of the basics. There seems to be a jump up in the class – very beginner or speaking conversationally. Gauging someone’s level before starting the course is good and helpful.
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.
Amanda and I were planning to sign up in TMI, but we wanted a Homestay experience also. Google showed LTL so we came here!
This was my second time in Taiwan. The homestay included two kids, 7yo daughter and 11yo son. Two separate apartments which were located on the 4th and 5th floor.
I had a room for myself, with a big bed and desk. The family was really nice, especially the mom.

The first week my teacher was Jessie. She was the best, probably one of the best teachers I’ve ever had for any language.
Jessie was very adaptable and very quickly moved to new questions. She was also a really kind human, we got along really well.
She would notice things that I say wrong, and then make material for the next day, helping correct it. Very relevant to me.
Perhaps the biggest thing was, she would do exactly what I wanted to learn, at my pace.
Due to this I advanced very quickly.
For the remainder of the course I had Willy and Wanrun. Willy is a very, very friendly guy, really easy to get along with. Willy is adaptable as well, also very open to suggestions, flexible with how we’re learning.
The teachers connect to make sure we continue from one to another. Teaching methods are not the same though.
At the school itself, the space is a really good. It’s quiet, there are drinks and ice cream. I didn’t expect that!
