Study Mandarin for a Semester in China and enjoy 18 weeks learning Chinese in a small group compared to larger class sizes at a Chengdu University.

Our Semester in China program lasts 18 weeks per Semester, you can double up to 36 weeks to get your Chinese ahead even faster.

This is a fixed program and is therefore a brilliant value option to learn Chinese in a small group with no more than six people, and an average of just three.

Whereas a Chengdu University might hold at least 30 people in a class, at LTL the class sizes are roughly 90% smaller and this means your progression with Mandarin will be enhanced greatly

I am over 40, can I take part in the Semester in China?

Absolutely all ages are welcomed.

The wonderful thing about the Semester classes normally is the variety of people we get in them.

The semester is a huge mixture of great characters from around the world so no worry about your age or nationality!

Can beginner join the Semester in China?

You sure can.

A large percentage of our semester students are actually beginners so no problems there.

Is there much to do in Chengdu?

There’s plenty to do in Chengdu.

It’s actually voted one of the most popular cities for expats in China to live because of the weather, the slower pace of living, and cost of living.

Here are some things we like to do in Chengdu.

Is this essentially an 18 week Chinese course?

Yes it is.

The difference with the semester compared to booking group classes in Chengdu is that the dates are fixed. Individual courses also offer more flexibility as you can decide the schedule.

It is worth noting if you miss those classes, they cannot be re-arranged as you are sharing the class with others.

Why are classes never bigger than six people?

The bigger the class, the less chance you have to speak, it’s that simple.

We try our best to keep classes as small as possible for that reason alone.

Can I also study Chinese online with LTL?

You sure can.

We have a number of really cool online programs these days which include our brand new Flexi Class system and tailored individual classes.
