Learn Chinese in Taiwan for a full semester. Each semester is 18 weeks, choose whether you want to do one or two semesters.

Classes will be taught using traditional Chinese characters.

This is a great way for you to improve your Chinese language skills at a very reasonable price. It is not uncommon for our semester students to reach HSK3 level after one semester, and HSK4 after two semesters.

To make sure you get enough attention and support from your teacher, our group classes are kept small.

On average three students per class, and never more than six. This way you will have plenty of opportunities to practice and improve your Chinese in class.

The semester program is great value, and in addition to learning Chinese you will meet new friends from all over the world.

I’m a complete beginner, is this OK?

Yes, complete beginners are very welcome.

Actually, most of our semester students are indeed beginners. 

Before you come to Taiwan we will do an assessment of your current Chinese language level, so we can find the right class for you.

How about the Social Life, is there much for me to do?

Every week we prepare several exciting social events. The list of events is published locally each week.

These events are all of course voluntary.

Events can be: restaurant visits, bar hopping, museums, art galleries, tai qi classes and much more.

Can I also study Chinese online before coming?


We recommend our Flexi class system for beginners wanting to study online?

Why can I progress quicker at LTL than at a university?

It is true that you will progress faster here than at university.

The reason is simple, our class sizes.

At university you will usually be in a class with 20 or 30 other students, there will be little opportunity for you to speak up, and the teachers attention will be spread thin across all of your classmates.

There is no personal focus, unlike LTL, where you will form a close bond with your teacher and they will be able to adapt the teaching to your learning style.

Also, classes at LTL are between 5 and 10 minutes longer per class, over the course of a semester that also adds up.

How about applying for the Visa?

The visa requirements in Taiwan depend on which nationality you are. Some nationalities do not need a visa when entering Taiwan.

If however you need a visa, then LTL as a fully accredited language school will provide you with the supporting documents you might need.

You will then need to apply at your local TECO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Office). For more information, please contact us.

I thought the course of study was pretty flexible although I will admit that I had some difficulty learning to write the characters. The teachers were helpful.

The school created different teaching environments and methods, we like it and make us more confident and comfortable to learn Chinese language.

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 socials.

LTL’s strongest suit for me was that the people are very down-to-earth. There are new people every few days and LTL is incredibly diverse, so no one feels out of place there.

– Derek from the US


Both teachers were absolutely brilliant. The combination of them was perfect. Overall, I am pretty happy with all the teachers I’ve had. Thanks LTL!
