Group Classes or 1-on-1? I cannot decide.

Both are fit for purpose but generally if you are at, or above intermediate level we always strongly recommend individual classes when you come to learn Mandarin in China.

As your Chinese progresses, it’s likely your level becomes much more niche. Some people excel in writing, some in speaking, some in reading. At earlier stages of learning, the levels tend to balance out more.

Therefore having your own personalised study plan from a mid range level is key.

What if I grew up speaking a different Chinese dialect?

If you happen to have a family background in Cantonese, Hakka or any other Chinese dialect for part of your childhood we have something of use for you.

Our Chinese Heritage Speaker program is the perfect solution and is designed for speakers such as yourself.

Can I travel to other cities and study with LTL?

You sure can. We have eight cities across Asia with a presence and that is growing further!

Are there any additional costs?

No, none at all

We take great pride in providing you with the best service in the industry and that revolves around tight knit customer sales. When you contact us for the first time we aim to reply as quickly as possible in the most detail possible to make you feel at ease straight away.

That includes being completely honest about costs. There is nothing extra you pay for.

Is LTL open 365 days of the year?

It sure is!

We are open every day of the year and that includes Christmas Day, New Year‘s Day and Chinese New Year.

I am an advanced student, can I choose group classes?

Due to the nature of advanced level Mandarin students, studying in groups is not possible.

Advanced Mandarin speakers can vary hugely, for example one student could be a great speaker but have a poor knowledge of characters whereas the other can read Chinese perfectly but be a weak speaker.

For this reason alone intermediate and advanced students should always study alone.
