Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a course for solely younger individuals?

No, all ages are welcomed.

The great thing about our Semester classes normally is the variety of people we get in them. A youngster from the US could be coupled with a retiree from Australasia and an engineer from Sweden.

Our Semester in China is incredibly diverse so no specific age is welcomed, everyone is.

Is this course basically an 18 week Chinese course?

In essence yes.

The difference with the Semester in China program is that the dates are fixed. With individual courses there is a bit more flexibility when it comes to moving things around.

With the Semester, the start and end dates are fixed, and if you miss those classes, they cannot be re-arranged as you are sharing the class with other individuals.

I’m a complete beginner, can I join the Semester in China?

Absolutely, in fact most of our students who take on the Semester in China are beginners.

We will find the right class for you.

Is it really true I can learn more in a Semester at LTL than a Chengdu University?

We wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t true.

We have well over a decade of experience teaching foreigners Chinese and have a winning formula to cracking Chinese. We can’t promise you will be fluent after two semesters, you won’t be in all likelihood, but you will have a really good, solid grasp on Chinese.

This is all due to our small class sizes and quality of teaching. Add in a dash of hard work from yourself and you will make progress fast, trust us!

What will I do outside of class?

Whatever you want. The possibilities are endless. Chengdu is a big city so there is loads for you to see and do. Spending time with your fellow classmates/LTL students/homestay as well of course.

We actively encourage you to expose yourself to as much Chinese as possible. Chat to locals, read plenty, get to know the culture. This will all help in cracking the code that is Chinese!

How about applying for the Visa?

Take a look at our visa page for more information on how to apply for a visa.

Will my class ever exceed six people?

No it won’t, we make sure all your classes are small in size. This is important to us as the smaller the class, the quicker you improve your Chinese
