Learning Mandarin, like any other second language, is not as easy as it seems. We're passionate about teaching, learning and studying, and know very well the needs and concerns of foreign students.
More than anything, we care about our students and of course, helping them achieve smooth mastery coupled with fun, interactive activities for fast-paced language learning. We want to offer you the opportunity to learn an increasingly indispensable skill, discover China and make studying Mandarin the best time of your life!

Memorable experience was going to class without sleeping after a whole night of drinking with my classmates.
I chose this program because it was recommended by my university
I lived with a Chinese family, both in their 50s in a single room. Their son (23) studies at university in Beijing, but only comes home during the weekends. He had his own room, during the week I had the bathroom to myself, but on weekends shared it together with him. My host parents had their own bathroom in the master bedroom.

I knew zero Mandarin before this visit. LTL welcomed us, and made our arrival to Beijing easy. I recommend the airport pick-up. Also, install Pleco on your phone. It is a big help. I would also set up a VPN, otherwise you will not be able to access Facebook and Google, among other sites

The teachers were great, and everyone was very friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed living with a Chinese homestay family and meeting other students. I have learned and practised speaking, reading and writing a lot of Mandarin during my two weeks here - probably even more than in the ten months prior to this trip.
