Personal Assessment

In terms of putting you in the correct class regarding your current Chinese level, that’s also no problem.

Of course, all complete beginners go together with no problem but if you know some Chinese we will “assess” you before you come to Chengdu.

This is a simple conversation with our Director of Studies who will gauge what level you are at. A small chat will give us all the information we need to place you in the right class.

This step is ABSOLUTELY VITAL to your success and progress. No one wants to be in a class where they feel they are too advanced, or too far behind do they?

Remember – if you are a complete beginner you will pick a date below, if you know some Mandarin, you can start any Monday.

Frequently Asked Questions

How good is your teaching team?

Our teachers make LTL the success we are.

Our teachers hold a University Degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and on top of that they have at least 5 years teaching experience.

We get a lot of applicants to work at our LTL centres, but we are incredibly selective on who we hire, only the best for you.

What is a common lesson structure at LTL?

We cover speaking, reading, listening and writing.

Generally Monday, Wednesday and Friday we focus on speaking and listening, with Tuesday and Thursday directed at learning Chinese characters and writing.

It makes learning Mandarin in Chengdu with LTL diverse and great fun!

Will I be paired with someone from my country?

Possibly but as we welcome students from all over the world, the chances are smaller.

It depends which country you are from in reality. US and German students are our most popular so if you are from these two countries, then perhaps.

If this is something you don’t want, just tell us. The chances are you are going to meet people from anywhere and everywhere, adding to the fun of being at LTL!

Do I get chance too speak Mandarin in class?

Yes everyone gets the chance to speak.

This is a key reason why class sizes are kept small. Every student will get plenty of chances to speak Mandarin in class.

We believe strongly in getting every student talking as early as possible. In a big lecture theatre, you don’t get this chance, but at LTL you’ll be speaking all the time.

How does 1-on-1 differ from Group classes in terms of language progression?

It’s no secret your Mandarin ability will improve even faster when taking individual classes in Chengdu.

Think about it, 1-on-1 offers tailored Mandarin courses and you get the teachers attention for the whole lesson. In groups, although you are fully involved, time is split between a group. Individual classes are the quickest way you can improve your Mandarin.

Are group classes the same format across all LTL cities?

Yes no matter where you have your group class, whether in Chengdu or Taiwan, Shanghai or Beihai, the same sort of structure will be provided, dependant on the teacher of course.
