"Our teacher also made sure that there was enough room for personal accents and questions. In general she really encouraged us to speak, read and write. In conclusion I would say that I’ve made real progress. A lot faster than I would have in Belgium. I can’t wait to go back for a third time."

"The classes and the organisation and how things were explained suited both of us very well. The teachers repeat things a lot focusing on the pronunciation, and correct us when we say something wrong. We really like this. We liked the LTL lessons a lot."

"11 weeks at LTL have flown by and it’s been a great experience that I’d recommend. If you are on the fence, just make the jump. I decided to sign up for the Small Group Classes with some individual as well, at LTL Beijing. My Chinese lessons were great fun."

Henrietta  Testimony for LTL
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

LTL students had a variety of backgrounds I was reassured not to be the only ‘oldie’ in my group class. There is a sociable atmosphere and I particularly liked the fact that teachers and students ate lunch together. I look forward to returning for the even more immersive program!
