Semester in China

A Semester in China is 18 weeks of Intensive Chinese Language Study in small group classes. 

Semesters can be doubled up, making 36 weeks of Mandarin language study with each weekday split into four hours of lessons. Your group will have no more than six students meaning that everyone gets a chance to speak, listen, read and write and build a strong bond with not just your fellow classmates but also your teacher.

All our teachers have a degree in teaching Mandarin to foreigners and can boast five years experience.

Many of our students reach HSK 3 level and HSK 4 likewise.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the level of students mixed?

A fair portion of students are all beginners…

That said the range can mix from complete beginner to lower intermediate. After reaching a high enough level students are advised to learn individually as the needs of each student become a bit more complex.

You will be placed in the perfect class for you, dependant on your current level to ensure everyone makes the fastest progress possible.

Is progress that much quicker than if I studied Chinese at University or College?

Progression at LTL is much quicker and this is mainly due to class sizes.

University or college demands big classes or lecture halls of at least 30 people. In classes of this size you just don’t get the chance to speak. You listen and you write and you memorise.

With our class sizes so small, everyone gets the chance to speak, everyone gets a chance to shine and no one is left out. Close bonds are formed and it makes the learning environment for a Semester program hugely pleasant as well as productive.

Will I become fluent in Chinese after a single Chinese semester?

The choice is yours…

If you are willing to use your Chinese 24/7, live in a Chinese homestay, make Chinese friends etc, then you will be on the right path to success as quickly as possible.

It’s what you do outside the classroom that counts.

What are my accommodation options?

80% of LTL Students choose to live with a Chinese family.

It’s no coincidence this is the most popular choice given the experience and progression made with Chinese. Shared Apartments are the budget option and allow you to live with local Chinese people for a much more affordable price.

How do I apply for the Visa?

More details about gaining a China Visa can be found on our Chinese Visa Application page.
