Apps, programs, websites, learning aides and so on can be a great help when learning Chinese, but there is a limit to how far you can go with them. This is where Online Chinese Classes propel you to new levels of fluency.

There is simply no way to replicate that one-to-one teacher student interaction, but the key here is the teacher.

When you really want to master Chinese you need a professional teacher guiding you along the way.

The internet is wide and very resourceful, however finding high quality online teaching can be very challenging.

LTL is the world’s largest private Chinese language school and teaching thousands of students in our different schools throughout Asia. Teaching Mandarin is the one and only thing we do and we are very good at it.

With an LTL online course you will get a real Chinese instructor teaching you Mandarin online.

Classes are taught 1-on-1, are fully adapted to your individual needs and we will make sure you progress as fast as possible with your Mandarin Language Skills.

DID YOU KNOW – you can also study in small groups with our fixed group classes, or our brand new revolutionary Flexi Class system. These programs are cheaper than their 1-on-1 counterparts.

Online Chinese Classes at LTL


Here’s a number of reasons why we believe LTL is the best choice for you:

LTL is the private Chinese language education’s most established brand. We have been around for more than a decade, taught thousands of students and are today have eight Chinese language immersion schools in Mainland China, Taiwan and Singapore.

Our aim is to help students to progress in Chinese as fast as possible and actually achieve Chinese language fluency.

We believe every student is different and therefore nothing is more important than a professional teacher and a well designed, personalised course to get you where you want to.

Our students have an average 94% HSK pass rate and there is a reason for that.


We have a total of six online Chinese class packages ranging from our mini package for the more casual learner all the way through to our thorough package which lasts a whole year.

See what is best for you, or if you do not quite know what suits your needs best, contact us and we’ll be happy to advise you.


Mini: 25 lessons (2 months)

Dip in to get a taste of what LTL Mandarin School is all about with our mini package.

25 lessons of Chinese online classes will give you a feeling on whether this works for you.

Standard: 50 lessons (3 months)

This is our most popular package and helps you to improve your Mandarin as quickly as possible.

50 lessons in 3 months, get stuck in and improve your Mandarin fast with our expert teachers.

One Level – Sprint: 75 lessons (4 months)

Jump up a full Chinese level within four months.

This is for a motivated learner who wants to move up a whole HSK level in as little time as possible.

You are welcome to take a HSK exam after the course is completed, if you wish, this is up to you.


One Level – Thorough: 100 lessons (5 months)

This package is designed to help someone who is busy with work and others things in life to move up a full Chinese level. Take the HSK exam afterwards for additional motivation or just keep studying, this is completely up to you.

Two Levels – Sprint: 150 lessons (6 months)

Move two full Chinese levels up in six months. To achieve this task motivation and discipline is required from the student, but it is very doable with hard work and persistence.

Move forward as fast as you can without actually moving to China. Remember, all our courses are tailored to what you want to learn. Our teachers will make sure you hit your targets in your six months.

Two Levels – Thorough: 200 lessons (12 months)

Move up two levels within a year. It is recommended for students who want to get ahead with their Mandarin but only have a limited amount of time every week.

What are the Chinese levels?

We base a Chinese level on what it takes to get from a complete beginner level to HSK 1. Two levels are for a complete beginner to get to HSK 2.

Please keep in mind though that the steps between HSK levels get bigger the higher you to.

So for example getting from HSK 4 to 5 will take you longer than from 1 to 2.

For this reason, we advise students moving between higher levels like HSK4 to HSK5 to sign up for more classes.

What should I prepare?

Not much: a working internet connection, headphones and an internet enabled device.

It is possible to take classes on a mobile or a tablet too, but in our experience computers work best because of the bigger screen that allows you more easily to use the interactive white board, chat functions etc.

Also just like in any class, make sure you are in a quiet undisturbed environment where you can fully focus on your studying Mandarin. Because your screen will be used for the class, having a notebook and a pen ready to write things down also helps many students, though it is also possible to take notes on your PC too.

How long is a lesson?

All LTL online classes last for 55 minutes.

Do I need to have a schedule?

Yes absolutely you do – both for yourself and your teacher.

To progress in Mandarin we need regular classes with a regular schedule. Just an hour here of there just doesn’t get enough revision and repetition in to really progress. At the same time of course all good professional teachers have full teaching schedules so it is important to stick to those.

The great thing is that you can schedule classes seven days of the week, including weekends at no extra cost.

Do I need a webcam?

No you do not. The teacher will use a webcam though you can ask him to switch it off too if you prefer that.

However, to make a class fun and interesting it is very helpful to see each other, so we would definitely suggest having your webcam open during the lesson.

Do you teach other languages?

Yes we also teach Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and other dialects of Chinese (like Cantonese, Shanghainese and Taiwanese).

We love teaching languages and that passion is always shared with our students!

Can I choose my teacher?

Yes of course you can. Our Director of Studies will organise the most suitable teacher for you, however if at a later point you want to change to another specific teacher, this can be arranged of course.

Please note that our teachers are professional Mandarin instructors who all have teaching schedules, so while it is usually no problem, any changes are still subject to availability.

Can I do face-to-face classes?

Oh yes absolutely. You can upgrade your online classes to face to face classes at any LTL School in Singapore, Taipei, Beijing, Shanghai, Beihai, Xian, Chengde or Chengdu. Check all your options on the website here.

Just contact your student advisor.

Can I cancel my classes?

Yes you can cancel up to 30% of your classes up to six hours beforehand during mainland Chinese working hours (9am – 6pm, Mon-Fri).

Do you offer smaller programs?

We want our students to actually learn Chinese and with any course shorter than 25 hours we just will not have enough time to help you to get there so we do not offer any package smaller than the Mini.

A real Chinese language course also needs to be planned, prepared and organised properly. All this plus the free study counselling session etc. are all included for free in the course already.

Can I study in small groups online also?

You can indeed. We recently launched our brand new Flexi Class program which is the most flexible way to learn Chinese online.

You can study, worldwide, 24/7. You can book, cancel and re-book classes at the click of a button and you still have access to China’s best language teachers.

Find out more on our Flexi Classes page.

Are you well rated online?

We are indeed!

We have over 100 Trustpilot reviews at an average of 4.8 out of 5 and well over 75 Google reviews at a 5 star average!

I get almost as much learning from an online class as an offline class, even though it is more fun to see your teacher in real life. I can only recommend LTL Online classes. I have learned a ton of new vocabulary.

I think LTL's online classes are a pretty solid alternative to having classes at the school. You can be somewhat flexible with your schedule and reschedule pretty easily, which I find pretty convenient.

I think online training is the best solution for me currently. Through online classes we can do the same exercises with the same effectiveness like face to face classes. I am already able to order my favourite foods.
