Extra LTL Mandarin School Taiwan Programs

Taiwan Safari

One of the best ways to learn Mandarin is to practise out and about on the streets on Taipei. That is exactly what our Taiwan Safari program will help you with. Learn how to do all the basic things you’ll need to get around Taiwan, how to buy a train ticket, how to order your favourite foods and drinks, how to bargain for your favourite pair of shoes. There’s no better way to get to grips with the Chinese basics than really immersing yourself and getting out there and practising.

Your Chinese language teacher will accompany you at all times on the Taiwan Safari program. All LTL teachers are experienced and know their way around Taipei. They’ll make sure that your safari program is suitable for your Mandarin level.

Taiwan Safari classes are split into 3 parts:

Warm up – Your LTL teacher will introduce the lesson topic to you, and go through any vocabulary and sentence structure needed.

The Safari – Get out there, explore Taipei and put that Mandarin to the test. We have 20 different Taipei Scenarios to try.

Cool Down – You will review everything you’ve learnt during the safari session during the cool down. You can go through any new vocabulary you picked up on the way, and ask your teacher about anything you didn’t understand.

IMPORTANT – Our Taiwan Safari option is a 1-on-1 course upgrade. If you’d like to book this course, you must first choose a program which includes at least 10 hours of 1-on-1 classes per week. You can then upgrade those hours Taiwan Safari classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I progress with Individual classes quicker than Chinese group classes?

Yes, with 1 on 1 Mandarin classes, everything is up to you and your needs.

The pace will be up to you, if you want to progress faster, you can. If you want to learn more speaking than writing (or vice versa), you can.

In a group class the teachers attention is spread across several students, and the pace and curriculum are set.

Do I have just one teacher?

Sometimes, yes. If you have a preference, please let us know and we will take it into account. We will do our utmost to provide what you prefer.

This, however will be subject to your current ability as well as teacher availability. You can be sure that whether you have one or several teachers you will never cover the same topics twice as all of our teacher communicate between classes.

Six hours a day seems a lot of Chinese. Will I be OK with this amount of hours?

Six hours can sound like a long time to study, but in our experience you will not feel this way.

We know that people learn differently, and our classes will be set up to be both enjoyable as well as informative. Learning for six hours every day will also see your Chinese ability improve quickly, but of course it’s a challenge and, especially early on, there will be a lot to take in!

Group lessons look more fun, I want to meet people as well as learn Chinese, what do you advise?

Just because you are in an 1 on 1 class doesn’t mean you won’t meet people!

To help you meet new friends, students and locals alike, we offer The LTL Lunch Club, and various social events. Don’t worry about the social aspect, the friendships you will build will happen outside the classroom.

Your progress will be quicker with 1 on 1 classes, and in the end this is why you’ve chosen LTL Taiwan. The social life is great whether you do individual or group classes.

LTL was super. My teachers Anna and Willy and I studied 4 hours per day with them in Taipei. The teachers were very friendly and adaptive to my needs. For example, I gave them suggestions and new ideas for his methods, and they adapted around that.

The first week my teacher was Jessie. She was the best, probably one of the best teachers I've ever had for any language. The teachers connect to make sure we continue from one to another. At the school itself, the space is a really good.
