FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are all students on the Chinese Semester Program beginners?
Many of the students are indeed beginners but not all.
You will be placed in a class most suited to your level. If you’ve studied the Chinese language before you will speak to our Director of Studies and have a personal assessment to gauge what your level of Mandarin is.
You will be placed in a class accordingly.
Is there an Online Semester Program?
Yes, check out our Online Semester page for more information.
Will I become fluent in after a single Chinese semester?
A lot depends on how much you put in. 18 weeks is a very short time to become fluent. We find that students with a strong drive and determination to learn the language can achieve fluency after two semesters.
A fair level to achieve after 18 weeks is HSK 3. Be aware that staying with a Homestay can speed this process up further.
Is there much to do outside of class?
First and foremost, your classmates more often than not become your friends. In many cases friends for life.
There is a wealth of activity to discover in Beijing and we help that further by organised weekly events which can range from a host of things from scouring through the local Markets for a bargain, to going for Dinner at one of the many famed restaurants in Beijing.
You will not be bored in Beijing.
Is progress that much quicker than if I studied Chinese at University or College?
It really is.
We have first class teachers, a small but tight community and small classes. Rolled into one the benefits are huge compared to attending a course at university. Class sizes are big and there is generally not a personal feel as many students are managed by one tutor.
The service and help you receive will be much more personal at LTL than at a university or a college.
What are my accommodation options?
We have a couple of accommodation options available to you. You can stay in one of our Shared Apartments with other LTL Students or you can stay with a Chinese family in our Homestays. It’s worth noting students that choose the latter generally progress quicker when studying Mandarin. Homestays will only speak in Mandarin and this will be of huge benefit to your language skills in the long run.
