What do LTL Students think about our 1-on-1 Classes?

Full Time Individual Mandarin Classes

Full time 1 on 1 classes are the most effective way to improve your Chinese language skills in the quickest time possible. We offer 3 different individual Chinese courses which are outlined below:

Standard Individual Chinese Course – 20 hours of Chinese lessons per week. This can be with one or two teachers, this can depend on preference and teacher availability. Lessons will be tailored around you and you decide what you want to learn and at what pace.

Intensive Individual Chinese Course – This includes 30 hours of Mandarin a week which is broken down in 6 hours per day from Monday to Friday. A sure fire way to rapidly enhance your Mandarin ability.

Small Group and Individual Chinese Course – 30 hours of Chinese lessons per week is broken down into 20 hours of small group class and 10 hours individual. 4 hours of group classes per day and 2 hours individual.

Whichever individual program you decide to take on you will be welcomed to the LTL community with open arms. Despite studying by yourself you will still make friends, socialise and very much be a part of the furniture here. By studying on your own your progress will be quicker and you can use the LTL Lunch Club and after School activities to get to know other students, teachers and the LTL staff.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do the Chinese lessons take place?

Full time classes take place at our Chinese Learning Centre in the heart of the CBD in Beijing.

We are located near Da Wang Lu which is Line 1 and 14 of the Beijing Metro.

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

Yes you will.

With the individual class everything is up to you. If you want to learn quicker, you can. If you want to learn more speaking over writing, you can. With groups the teachers have a number of students to cater for. Individual classes make quicker progress.

Do I have just one teacher?

On some occasions yes, on others no but we do ask if you have a preference please do tell us.

We will strive to provide what you prefer. This will depend on your current ability and teacher availability. Whether you have 1 or 3 teachers, this won’t make a difference to your progress.

All teachers meet and discuss classes so you will not cover the same topics twice. In Chengde as we have fewer teachers it maybe a tad tricky to provide to your preference but we will do our utmost to help.

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

On the face of it 6 hours can sound a lot of time to study a new language but we assure you it will not feel this way.

Our lessons are planned to be fun and informative. You will generally build a solid rapport with your teacher meaning you often become friends. This takes the learning element away some what.

You will also find with 6 hours per day your Chinese ability rockets pretty high, pretty quickly.

Extreme Chinese Immersion

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

Although group students get to know their classmates our individual students don’t remain without friends! Absolutely not.

The LTL Lunch Club and Social events are the real times to socialise and get to know each other. Most of our students take up individual courses and the friendships they build are outside of the classroom. Do not let this put you off. Your progress will be quicker learning individually and this is ultimately why you come to LTL.

That said, if you are keen on a group option on a lesser budget then our budget Chinese course might be an ideal option for you.

Beijing Social Life

I want to hear what previous students of LTL think?

There’s many ways you can do this, let’s help:

We also have an active presence online throughout the internet. If you want to hear it for yourself, then let us know and we can put an ex-student of LTL in touch with you!

I want Individual lessons, what next?
