Each lesson is split into 3 parts:

Warm up – Get understanding any vocabulary and sentence structures needed. Your teacher will fully prepare you for the tasks in hand before heading out.

The Safari – Explore the streets of Singapore and get speaking.

Cool Down – Time to review how everything went? This is the chance for you to ask questions and for your teacher to enhance your replies.

The Singapore Safari is a 1-on-1 course upgrade. To book this course, you must first book a Mandarin program that includes at least 10 hours a week of 1-on-1 classes.

Why are 1-on-1 classes more expensive than groups?

Because you progress faster, it’s that simple.

There is no substitute for tailored Mandarin progress. If you have just 4 weeks to cram in and learn as much as possible, individual classes always win.

What’s best, 4 or 6 hours per days?

It will depend per person but of course we recommend as much as possible.

That said, learning Chinese isn’t only done in the classroom. What will define your success is what progress you make outside the classroom.

How do I sign up?

Simply drop us an email using the contact form above or use the live chat function below.

How many teachers will I have?

This will depend on your ability at present, and teachers availability.

You could have a single teacher, or you might have three. Either way, we’ll make sure it fits your program perfectly.

Can I really learn anything I want?

What you want to learn we will teach you. It’s that simple.

This is the beauty of our individual courses. With group classes in Singapore, you will follow the schedule of the class, which, although is still great, doesn’t give you the chance to personalise the class.

Can I combine my Singapore course with one in China?

Absolutely, we’d love to host you over as many cities as you wish!

In total we offer Chinese classes across 8 cities now so you have plenty of options.

We have a calculator where you can check out the cities, and the costs involved.

I’ve only been here for three weeks, but both my teachers are extremely experienced and very patient. On the first day, I was welcomed warmly by my homestay family.

– Michael from the US


Whilst the lessons were intensive, they were very rewarding. My time with LTL was incredible and I’ll remember the memories I made in Singapore for the rest of my life.

– Matthew from the UK


My teacher is a master of Mandarin and someone who appears to know something about nearly every topic I want to discuss. His patience and precision are exceptional.

– John from the UK


I stayed in Singapore for one month having 1h 30m class from Monday to Friday. My teacher (Miss Ding) was amazing. I really recommend this experience.

– 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


My host family is very welcoming of guests in their house. They were very welcoming and trying to teach me all about their culture, adjusting to the level that I speak.
