Can you really learn Mandarin in a place like Singapore?

You can! Mandarin is one of four official languages in Singapore, alongside English, Malay and Tamil.

Chinese is widely spoken in Singapore, with many Chinese migrating here. You will have no issues finding Mandarin speaking communities in Singapore.

How does LTL differs from a university course?

The main factors are these:

Small groups compared to big

More chance to talk

More chance to chat with your teacher

Better chances on improving your weaknesses.

Hour long classes, not 45 minutes. That’s an extra hour a day.

Can I join even if I’m a complete beginner?

Sure you can. The program welcomes beginners with open arms.

Can I combine a course in Singapore with one in China?


Tell us what you want and we can help you book it up.

How many students per class?

Anything between 2 and 6. The classes are kept small for your benefit, so you get to speak more.

I am an advanced speaker, can I join the Semester?

Unfortunately your level is probably a bit too high for group classes.

We do not recommend group classes due to the fact finding other students with your exact level is very difficult. 

Individual classes would suit your needs best.

LTL is organized and have such supportive and kind staff. Shoutout to my teachers who were thoughtful in teaching, and other staff for hosting fun social activities.

Each week I spend multiple hours with Timothy, and I can confirm that he is a high quality teacher, with many years of experience and a capability to teach at any level.

– John from the US


The city is pretty secure at any time of the day and night (even far away from the center). I really recommend this experience if you are a beginner chinese student.

– Sarah from Italy


My first 2 weeks in Singapore were better than I expected. I was “forced” to jump into the deep-end of the Chinese speaking pool and found myself speaking it all day.

– Amit from Israel


I would recommend LTL Language School to anyone wanting to improve their mandarin and have great fun outside of school time! It’s a work hard, play hard kind of course.

– Matthew from the UK


Singapore is a great place to live while studying Chinese! Restaurants, bars, museums and attractions galore! I’m sixty-nine but would like to continue in the future!
