The semester in Chengdu is a fixed 18 week program in which you receive four hours of Mandarin lessons a day in small group classes which never exceed six people.

Why are classes so small? So you progress faster.

Imagine a big lecture theatre of 50 people listening to a teacher. Now picture a small, compact classroom with 4 students and a teacher.

I am over 40, can I take part in the Chengdu Semester?

Absolutely all ages are welcomed.

The wonderful thing about the Semester classes normally is the variety of people we get in them. The semester is a huge mixture of great characters from around the world so no worry about your age or nationality!

Can beginner join the Semester in Chengdu?

You sure can.

A large percentage of our semester students are actually beginners so no problems there.

Is there much to do in Chengdu?

There’s plenty to do in Chengdu.

It’s actually voted one of the most popular cities for expats in China to live because of the weather, the slower pace of living, and cost of living.

Here are some things we like to do in Chengdu.

Is this effectively an 18 week Chinese course?

Yes it is.

The difference with the semester compared to booking group classes in Chengdu is that the dates are fixed. Individual courses also offer more flexibility as you can decide the schedule.

It is worth noting if you miss those classes, they cannot be re-arranged as you are sharing the class with others.

Why are classes never bigger than six people?

The bigger the class, the less chance you have to speak, it’s that simple.

We try our best to keep classes as small as possible for that reason alone.

Can I also study Chinese online with LTL?

You sure can.

We have a number of really cool online programs these days which include our brand new Flexi Class system and tailored individual classes.

My Chinese skills got a lot better also thanks to my teacher Ana, who showed patience and talent for teaching us, creating a perfect way between learning and having fun.

Everyone was super nice and I feel a lot more confident with my mandarin. My teacher helped me with my vocabulary, and in the afternoons I learnt about the culture.
