Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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

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 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.

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.
