Study Chinese for one or two full university semesters with LTL where we guarantee small group classes and only qualified teachers. We ensure all teachers are graduates of teaching Chinese as a foreign language and are experienced teachers. Chinese language semester courses are organized by semester with four hours of group class every day offering the structure you would expect from a university program whilst benefitting from a small group class environment. Classes on average have 3-4 students but will never exceed 6.

The course curriculum focuses on all aspects of mandarin; speaking, listening, reading and writing, whilst also covering a wide number of topics from daily conversation skills, culture to business and economics. Hard working students should expect, if starting from scratch, to achieve at least a HSK level 3. For those studying for two semesters functional fluency is a realistic aim.

  • Highest teaching standards – LTL hires the best teachers from universities all over China for it’s Chinese language courses. A teacher must have spent years gaining experience at other institutions before joining the LTL teaching team and of course hold a University degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (对外汉语).
  • Small classes – Class size is usually 3-4 students and never more than 6, allowing students to get the individual attention during class they need.
  • Immersion – We help you to speak Chinese outside of the classroom.
  • Support – Before and during your course, the ever helpful LTL team is always available for help, support or any other questions you might have.

Former LTL Mandarin School student PascalPascal, 55 from Australia

I selected to take the intensive semester course 4 months. This included a group class 4 hrs per day and one on one class 2 hrs per day. I also chose to combine this with a home stay so as to completely immerse myself in Chinese Culture and language. I found this to be very rewarding.

As far as the classes go, the group class where small, never more than 5 students at a time, so teacher student interaction is very good. I found the one on one class to very flexible; you can tailor this class to suit your own needs and pace. I found the teaching staff, school facilities and the support staff (very important when you don’t speak the language) to be of a very high caliber. No matter how long you have, I would thoroughly recommend LTL to anyone wishing to learn Mandarin.
