Testimonials


noemi chinese student

My partner came to Beijing for work and I decided to join him here to learn Chinese while working part-time. I am currently studying a 10 week beginner Chinese course with LTL. My teachers are very good at tailoring our classes to the language needs of every-day life in Beijing for an expatriate and classes are very interesting and fun. I enjoy going to school every day. I feel our progress after so far only two weeks has also been very quick, with me already being able to bargain and starting to understand what people say on the streets. I have and will continue to recommend LTL to anyone who wants to seriously study Chinese.
