Whichever month you want to start studying with us, we’ll get you onboard in no time!
If you are a complete beginner or on the cusp of HSK 6, it doesn’t matter, we are ready to get the ball rolling on your language learning journey.
If you study 1-on-1 with us we can tailor a course specifically to your needs and you can start on any Monday of the year.
If you wish to join a group class, we will most likely have to designate a specific date as we need to arrange this with other students too.
Either way, we are incredibly flexible, we are fully aware of time differences, your working schedule and everything else that life throws at you, don’t worry, we’ll make it work.
Our courses are excellent value for money, and when you factor in that you don’t have to commute, travel or drive to classes, the case proves even stronger.
Our online courses are competitively priced meaning you get the best value for money, that fits around your schedule.
The more classes you book with us, the cheaper it becomes!
All our teachers are qualified Mandarin teachers. That’s why we hired them to work in our classrooms all over China. We are bringing our incredibly talented teachers right to your computer screen!
Sounds odd doesn’t it, but actually, even though you are learning from the comfort of your own home the community feel is still very much alive for you.
It’s very easy to build strong rapports with your teacher and classmates even through online classes.
You are invited into all our WeChat communal groups where students discuss all things Chinese. You will have unrestricted access to groups with your teacher and classmates.
The learning doesn’t stop at the end of class, keep the conversation going 24/7 if you so wish.
Everyone counts at LTL, whether you are in China or not.
Achieving immersion online sounds like an impossible task, but actually it’s not.
Sure, there’s no substitute for coming to China and being truly immersed, but not everyone has the time or the opportunities to do so. We don’t want that to stop you from learning Chinese.
Immersion can be achieved in many ways.
To find out more how it can be done online, check out our tips on how to learn Chinese online.
Over the years, the network of LTL Schools has hosted thousands of students of all different backgrounds, ages and learning styles.
Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced?
You can learn what you want with our individual, tailored online courses!
Students with any level of prior Chinese experience are invited to study with us.
If you want to learn something in particular, our tailored individual courses are a perfect fit for you.
Learning in groups of three to six creates a sense of camaraderie between the students, even online.
Many of our students choose to do a combination of both!
We are fully aware learning Chinese is a commitment, even for a couple of hours at home three times a week. That’s OK.
It might feel like you are on your own from afar. Do not fear!
LTL Mandarin School is staffed with native Chinese teachers and also an international team of English/Italian/French/Russian/Norwegian (and more) speaking Student Advisors.
Our student advisors job is to make you feel at ease with your course, to help you “settle into” life at LTL. Even if you aren’t physically here, that doesn’t matter.
You are a crucial part of us no matter where you are in the world.
We are here to support you.
The value of a good teacher cannot be underestimated.
Every single one of our teachers has chosen to pursue teaching Chinese to foreigners as a profession.
That means they’ve graduated with a qualification in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, and are now dedicated to helping you succeed.
We are proud to show them off, we know you’ll absolutely love our teachers. Why? Because everyone does!
We have a very tough recruitment and training process in place for all new teachers.
Across all LTL schools, we have a very high staff retention rate too. Some of our teachers are coming up to a decade with us!
A number of government Education Ministries, independent agencies, newspaper journalists and TV companies have recognised LTL Mandarin School as a top-quality provider of Chinese language programs.
It’s true – check it out.
We’ve been on national Chinese television – more than once. We’ve been visited and interviewed by journalists from leading newspapers (The Telegraph in the UK, Die Welt in Germany).
We’ve received amazing reviews from our former students also:
We’ve also been accredited by a host of educational organisations:
LTL Mandarin School is a fully-accredited member of the International Association of Language Centres (IALC), the world’s first and oldest association of private language schools.
This means we operate the school based on the IALC Code of Ethics and are subject to regular inspections.
The Chinese Government has recognised LTL Mandarin School as an ‘Accredited Provider of Cultural Programs’ and also an official exam centre for the HSK Chinese Proficiency exams.
Yes, that means you can gain your HSK certification while you’re here!
The German Ministry of Education has certified LTL Mandarin School as a provider of ‘Educational Holiday Trips’ (Bildungsurlaub).
This means that German citizens can apply to take sabbatical leave from work in order to study Chinese at an LTL School.
The Swedish National Agency for Higher Education (Högskoleverket/CSN) has recognised LTL Mandarin School as a certified “Education Provider”.
This means that Swedish citizens may be eligible for scholarships and/or time off work in order to complete their chosen LTL program.
LTL class credits are recognised by universities around the world, including Michigan State University. Want to find out how to claim credits? Just get in touch with our Student Advisor team.
