SEMESTER IN BEIJING – THE DETAILS

Studying Chinese abroad with our Semester program is an experience that will remain with you forever. Our 18 week program will get your Mandarin ahead fast.

Small group classes, fully certified teachers and a comfortable teaching environment means you have all you need.

Our Semester course runs from Monday to Friday every week and will include 4 hours a day of Mandarin lessons. Many students reach HSK3 level after one semester and can reach HSK4 after two but this can improve further with the inclusion of a homestay and extra individual classes.

Hard work outside, as well as inside of the classroom is essential in helping you achieve the best Chinese language level possible.

You will have the opportunity to make friends for life, just like at university or college. We are a small but tight knit family at LTL and every student who joins us is welcomed with open arms.

Be a part of our community with our daily lunch club and weekly social events. If to wish to push your Chinese at an even faster rate, then it’s worth checking our our Immersion Program or looking at staying with one of our Beijing Homestay families.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I am a complete beginner, can I join?

Yes, most of our Semester program students are also beginners.

We will find a class that fits your level. If you’d like to learn some survival basics before you arrive in China, then our Online Courses might be just the thing for you.

Why will I progress quicker at LTL compared to Uni?

It is genuinely true by the way; you will progress faster here!

Small class sizes are crucial to this. Imagine being in a class of 15 or 30, you can’t speak up. Your teacher cannot correct you. There is no personal focus. With us there is. You will form a close bond with your teacher(s) and they will get to know your strengths and weaknesses. Don’t underestimate those extra 5/10 minutes per class as well.

55 minutes compared to 45 minutes make a huge difference over a Semester.

Can I also learn Chinese Online with LTL?

You can indeed.

We have a number of specialist online Mandarin courses for individuals, or small groups also.

Is there much for me to do outside of class?

There certainly is.

We are fully prepared every week. Our staff produce a list of weekly social activities which students can partake in at their own free will. These range from visits to our favourite restaurants and bars, to trips to museums, art districts and much more.

How do I apply for the Visa?

Visit our Visa Application page for more information on this.

How many people will be in my class?

This will depend on what time of year you come and how busy the school is but the class size is always between 2 and 6 students.
