Connection Kit

  • Student Ambassador
  • Get to know the City like a true Beijinger

  • Quickly get to know chinese friends
  • Discover

“My Student Ambassador became my best Chinese friend. We meet every week and have great fun dining, talking and walking around Beijing. Through him I gained insights into Chinese Culture that I imagine would be quite difficult to get otherwise.” Mattis, Germany

Meeting new people is the best way to adjust to living in a foreign country. At Live the Language we believe that forming friendships with local Chinese is one of the highlights of any study experience. Let us help you to overcome the cultural barriers with the Live the Language Connection Kit. Before you arrive we will match you with two people: your personal Student Ambassador and a Language Exchange Partner.

Your Student Ambassador will be someone with matching interests who you can relate to. He/She will take you around Beijing, show you where to get the best bargains and tell you the hot spots to hang out. At the same time it is also a great way to improve your Mandarin skills. Your Language Exchange Partner will help you with your Mandarin and in return you will assist him/her with your native language or English. It is often out of these encounters that long-lasting friendships develop.

Testimonials


Andrea, German StudentSurvival Kit

“Booking the Survival Kit was the best decision I could have made, because it was my first time in Asia. It made my start here in Beijing so much more comfortable. Everything was organized for me in advance and I got all the important things I needed for my stay (subway card, school book, map, etc.) and being picked up at the airport was such a big relief for me, otherwise I would have had worries about getting lost.”

Chelsea, Norway StudentConnection Kit

“My experience from learning Chinese in Beijing couldn’t have been complete if it was not for the Connection Kit. My assigned language partner took me to trips outside Beijing, and introduced me to many of her Chinese-speaking friends. I’ve made so many good and lasting friendships through that kit!”

Marc student from the US at LTL Mandarin SchoolSurvival Kit

“As it was my first time coming to China, I figured I could use all the help I could get, so a couple months before my arrival, I went ahead and booked the Survival Kit, not realizing just how useful it would be. The guys at LTL really thought of it all! From airport pick-up, to 24/7 support from the lovely Fu LaLa; the Survival Kit really helped me get through those first few intimidating days of living in a foreign land worry and stress free!”
