Christmas is no holiday in China and LTL, as well as the whole rest of the country are open as normal. However, many students want to spend Christmas with their families at home, which means LTL is usually less busy during that time. For that reason LTL offers it’s 50% Christmas discount on all full-time courses for anyone who wants to study in Beijing during December/January. So, start your four week or longer course in December and receive 50% off all tuition for the two weeks
from the 18th to the 29th of December in 2017.
Chinese New Year Homestay Supplement
Chinese New Year is China’s most important holiday, when families come together for celebrations, as well as setting off fireworks and visiting temple fairs together. While class schedules are adjusted to take the holidays into account, courses continue throughout Chinese New Year and – as with all holidays – LTL students never loose any of the classes they paid for due to a holiday. Living with a homestay family during Chinese New Year is an incredible experience when students will participate in big family dinners, visit cousins, grandmothers and other relatives with their family and participate in the family celebrations – which always include a lot of food and fireworks. Read a blog by LTL student Sonia about her experience of spending Chinese New Year with an LTL homestay family. Being a guest in the house, a student of course will never pay for any of these, however, it is customary for a visitor to give a 红包 (red envelope) as a present during Chinese New Year. The Chinese New Year supplement of 1,000CNY covers all additional costs and is applicable for anyone staying with a family during one of the holidays.
